Hot World

Our big summer holiday has already come and gone. That means Hot World is half gone, doesn’t it? (I hope!)

This star is on our front door. I don’t know how long it’ll stay there. It clanks each time the door closes.

 I usually put this on the door, but this year I added the ribbon and put it on the antique cabinet thingy just inside my front door. I get tired of the same thing all the time, so I like to change it up. 🙂

These flags andthese are sprouting out of a wooden box that lived in my FIL’s garage for years. I believe something came in it that was delivered by train. I don’t know what it was, but I love that old box. I also have a couple of old scales sitting up there, next to my straw cowboy hat. (I wear the hat when I work in the garden to keep my hair out of my face.)

A couple of years ago, my dad said all he wanted for Father’s Day was a straw hat for working in the garden. NOTHING ELSE! So as a joke, all six of his kids bought him straw hats.

I found and bought the straw cowboy hat, then found the one above (I thought it looked like an Amish hat) bought that one to give Dad and kept the cowboy one.

He gave back the Amish hat because it was too big. And for some reason he didn’t want six straw hats, no matter how funny we thought we were.

The hats he kept must work well though, because the man grows a fantastic garden!
