Hi everyone. I just realized it is already July 8th. Time please slow down.
We're back with more rain here, with more due tomorrow depending how close to New Hampshire the remnants of what was hurricane Elsa track. It does look the the weekend is going to be nice however.
Today I want to share another tag for Valerie's vintage challenge at Tag Tuesday
I started by stamping this number image on the base of the tag and then by rubbing some varied colored inks horizontally on it. I went back and lightly added some brown ink over the colors to get a more vintage look.
I outlined the edges in black marker and white pen and also added a scrap of black metallic paper trim to the top.
I used this TH gentleman and then added some word stickers and the vintage circle sticker. I finally finished my tag with this cigar label.
Last week I went back to Bedrock Gardens. You may remember my walking friend and myself bought season passes. The exciting news is we discovered there are lots of other gardens nationwide we can visit for free with this pass. More to come there.
It was amazing how much Bedrock Gardens had changed since I last visited at the end of May. And not just the blooms.
I love these new birdhouses along the stone wall and all the new assembled "bugs".
Of course the blooms had changed also.
Can you see the honey bees at this one?
Last time we visited there were some people hanging some new art. We didn't get in their way, so we checked it out on this trip. One of the exhibits were these cool pod shaped wind chimes made of clay.
And there were also some ceramic mushrooms. They were big!
One of our not retired school friends joined us, and she explained this bent over and tied down tree. Native Americans did that to mark trails in this area . I didn't know that, but I can see how that works!
And the water lilies were in bloom.
And finally these pink flamingos. Every time I have visited I have tried to get a good photo of them, and this time I succeeded.
That's all for me. Thanks for visiting.
