Silent Auction Items

Well it is time I posted the items that we managed to bid on and win at the reunion.

First is this lovely bird feeder. It was made by a gentleman in a small town near Weyburn. We put it under the tree in our front yard. So far no birds have found it but I am hopeful.

This ornament was made by Harv's brother, Loran. Loran does lots of work on his lathe and Harvey really likes everything he does. This is project is called "Inside Out" because a person works from the inside out.

The last thing is this lovely basket. It is a spa pedicure basket and I can't wait to use it. Lots of lovely things to soak and use on my feet.

Today is a special day. It is Harvey's birthday so supper was something he loves, grilled smokie sausages and a Caesar Salad with Romaine lettuce from our garden. Dessert was Saskatoon Pie and Vanilla Icecream.

We actually picked enough Saskatoons for two lovely pies. One of which will be going in the freezer for later.

I think that they turned out very well, with just a little boil over. To make matters even better I have enough frozen berries to make another couple of pies this winter. Mmmm. A taste of summer when we are up to our armpits in snow.

Well off to visit all of you.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

  4. Jackie,

    That bird feeder is fantastic. That man could make a bundle selling those, I'm sure. All of your silent auction buys are great. Enjoy the pedicure.

    Those pies look delicious. Mmm! I can just imagine a slice warmed up on a cold winter night.


  5. Happy birthday to Harvey!

    The pies look yummy! Not familiar with Saskatoons .. what are they like?

  6. Hey DW, Saskatoons are similar to Blueberries only a bit redder in colour.
