Five Senses Weekend

Hello everyone! We are having a rainy Saturday. Phillip is out getting a tire fixed and then I'm hoping to go to the used bookstore. I wanted to say a special thank you to everyone who joined in for "Show and Tell Friday." Several of you mentioned that show and tell was one of your favorite things in school and it was for me too! Thank you for your comments about my hair. I didn't realize how red it looks in a few of the pictures, must have been weird camera lighting! I do have some red highlights but it's mostly brown.

I thought I would take a minute to post another Five Senses Weekend. I got the idea from Sandra.

See: We went to a few yard sales yesterday and I found this small table for $2.00. I'm using it as a plant stand in my kitchen.


Touch: Here is my new $1.00 table runner...


Here you can see a close-up of the pattern. I also got these 5 pale yellow napkins for $1.00.


Hear: Early this morning I was hearing the sounds of hammers. On the first Saturday of the month, Home Depot has a free kid's workshop. Today, the project was these mini herb planters, complete with seeds to plant!


I am also hearing the sound of new books being read. These two fabric covered books are in perfect condition (another yard sale find) and are going to be set aside for my niece's upcoming birthday.


Taste: I heard about these new "Bug Bites" from Rebecca. Aren't they cute? They taste good too!


Smell: My impatiens seem to be happy with all the rain we've been getting.


This flower pot sits on our front porch.


Thank you for reading my Five Senses Weekend! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, we are off to the bookstore!

I always love your 5 sense weekend posts. And I have to tell you that we have the same china cabinet. I took a picture so I will have to post it sometime for you to see. It is in my dining room and I love it.

I also love those herb starters your kids made. Isn't Home Depot fun???

We just got back from taking a walk on a "rails to trails" near our new home. I could smell so many wonderful smells of nature. It would be fun to be able to bottle it and put it on my blog! I should have brought my camera. Next time. Thanks for sharing your day with us.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, it's raining here too so I'm using it as an excuse to watch movies in bed :)

I love your plant table; you really got a great bargain there! Your impatiens are gorgeous; we have been enjoying some much needed rain, too.

Mrs. Pivec said...

Your impatiens are looking great, the plant and plant stand look so nice there in the corner (plants always liven up a room, don't they?), and I LOVE those beautiful books you found at the yard sale. What a find!

Thanks, too, Kelli, for your kind words at my blog this morning.

Be sure to share your book store finds with us. It's one of my favorite things to do!
