August Kitchen Window



August...are you kidding me? It's August? 

I have not been posting...or commenting lately. I have been having a little "wing" trouble.  Rotator cuff...impingement...frozen shoulder...Ouch! I've been trying to rest my arm, hoping it will mend. 

I have, however, been getting a little doll making in...I sew by hand and, luckily, it doesn't hurt to do so. And, of course, could not let August make an entrance without a new window scape.


A few of my favorite collections joined forces this month. Shooner redware...early tin bird cookie cutters...and green ivy. Indoor plants are so great for the health of your home...they filter a lot of bad stuff.


This sweet little lad is by the talented Kolene Spicher. He is an original watercolor and I was so happy to add him to my folk art collection. Kolene painted the frame as well.


He is holding a book...about birds. Perfect!


My paternal grandmother was a lover of birds, and I'm sure that love was passed directly to me. Well, that and my name.


Love this diminutive early cutter...barely two inches high.


The flock gathered in an old caddy painted a wonderful old mustard color.


A Shooner bank decorated with two birds.


I like birds. I like this August window. 


 Hoping my wing heals soon so I can get back to visiting you all.

I hope you are all enjoying the fleeting days of summer. Hope you are making lots of memories with those you love. 

Have a wonderful and safe week!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  3. You did it again. It's beautiful and rich. So sorry about your sore shoulder. I was in physio a long time for my shoulder after my fall on the ice. Speedy recovery.
