Lambs and Ivy

Every once and awhile I run across something that I haven't shared with you before.
 At the old house this wonderful old fruit crate hadn't made it past the garage
 "shop inventory".
 Now at the new house, it again migrated to the garage. 
I'm not sure why except that I've just never known what to do with it...
pretty lame excuse.

I had wanted to use it with the potting bench, but anything out there needs to be water resistant, and the label already has some signs of water damage, so that idea won't work. I brought it into the kitchen to take some pics, I think I may use it on the bottom shelf of the baker's rack. But, it's time to enjoy it instead of just making a mental note of it to and from the car. Do you all do that? I can't tell you how many times I have a piece that I'm really fond of, but fail to put to use because I haven't had an epiphany yet...

Do any of you remember the little nursery school rhyme, "Mairzy Doats"?
I remember my grandmother singing that to me, 
and it took awhile for me to figure out the actual words, 
I guess that's the idea.

So as it says, "Little lambs eat ivy".

Little decorative metal wheelbarrow...

I found this similar fruit label, 
but nothing else about the company.

I've had this "Tumbling Blocks" quilt for several years, and I love using it in the Spring.
 All the pastel colors remind me of a flower garden with hundreds of blooms.

Speaking of lambs, last Fall we went to a wonderful new winery just southwest of Springfield, called Lambs and Vines, they have a herd of sheep on the property, but it was early September and they were in another pasture, so I couldn't visit with them. (SO disappointed) A couple of bottles of wine had to do, instead. 

Just look at the faces on that wine label!

Looks like a photo straight from France, doesn't it?

It's almost time to change things up to some
