Now, the question is: What creative things can you make with these? They look fun all gathered into a vintage vase. I "see" lots of little speckled mushrooms, or perhaps the colourful centres to some funky flowers. Attached at the centre to create a large star burst?
Of course, they still work well in shoes too.

For a while my mom mailed in her own ATCs. Since the group disbanded, we continue to trade each month. She usually chooses the theme and we mail three to each other. I normally forget to make a copy for my own records but today I actually scanned them. The theme for September was "silhouettes." They are simple but I am pleased with the result and they will mail well too.

We got 7 quarts. Not bad. Some of my own late-blooming tomatoes are sitting on the jars.
Today everyone is better than they were, and on the mend thankfully. And I have leftovers. Bonus!!

I turned the page on the calendar this week. You just know it's September when you look outside.
You know that autumn is around the corner when you wake to cool misty mornings.
The goldenrod creates a yellow border around the property.
Extra warm days, as summer holds on just a little longer. There is a "bee tree" nearby. Here they are "bearding" -cooling down the hive.

This book, publishes in 1969, is a story and photo essay dedicated to "The little children of the forgotten streets of all the big cities, who, with noble naivete, romp and play, amid rubble and decay-happily unmindful that all gardens are not the same as theirs."
At the back of the book I discovered a note: this is number 519 of a limited edition of nine hundred copies. July 1969. I can find nothing about this on-line at all.
That other box? Well, let me show you.
