Two sweet old nests that Ed found when he was chopping logs from the fallen trees in the garden. Gotta love nests especially the real thing. We are always finding treasures in the garden of the schoolhouse. We found a collection of YR sauce bottles that the children used to bring to school filled with milk.
We had a great time at the festival down in Ballinamore with Pam and Zinda and Paul. We had a pub crawl on Wed. night as there was entertainment on all over the town....Jazz and Swing, Country and Western, Dj's, Karaoke, Rock, and more.....
Pam, Zinda and me...
Scottie begs nicely for a cup of tea! These two adorn the right hand side of my halldoor inthe Schoolhouse.
On the left hand side of my hall door are these two lovelies.
Now what do you think this is??
Well - it is part of a frame from an old school desk that Ed dug up when he was gardening in the girls side of the dividing wall in the garden.(Boys and girls were separated for classes) Just one of the school related things we have unearthed since we have been here.
See the trees at the end of the garden? Well, one day when I was having a leisurely breakfast a knock came to the door. I opened it and a bunch of old ladies walked in!
"We planted the trees at the end of the garden during the thirties and we are having a reunion"
Well, they were already in ....and weren't looking like they were going to leave......so what could I do?
I let them wander all over and enjoyed their stories about the various rooms and the memories they brought up for them.
Yes, we actually found a red mushroom with white circles. ... I meant to add a fairy figure and take a pic...when...batteries died. Oh well, another missed photo op.
