I Like Thursday #90

Welcome to this week's list of likes! Starting with our little fire chief, Milo!
we'll start with this awesome cloud at sunset last night!

We have too many likes for one list so I'll put it in two posts, one on a new neighborhood with quirky homes for Saturday!
For now...
Step into my world... I liked this door to a garden instead of a gate, it matched their front door
I like the Iris blooming here now
and the poppies, we didn't have those near Annapolis
We did have flox but I totally love the blue outdoor carpet so I included a recent pic of it.

We visited two street fairs last weekend, one in Erie and one in Denver. What fun it was!

 local businesses giving away stuff, and crafts...
and food
fresh and cooked... look at this guy with an enormous tumbler of fire roasted peppers being cooked with torches right there!
Next to sculptures, and the fire dept truck (luckily) and lots more
I loved this man's pottery, and he was demonstrating his techniques
You might just be able to see him right inside the shop front. I used to do raku and this is just wonderful!
I liked this "welcome" bear at a home we walked past to get to the Erie CO fair. Grrrr! Welcome, if you dare! and they had lots of dogs and people and businesses and food as well as live music
I just loved this vendor's free offerings... little globes of chocolate and that bowl!!
the neighborhood was so cool, with a mix of old homes and weird homes like this pod.
Then as it was raining and we had seen all the booths, we visited a quilt store of course
A Quilter's Corner in Erie CO
Where I shopped for others... lol... I might have gotten two yards of some cool new metallic fabric for myself, since they gave me a birthday discount.
I just love a quilt store! Jewel colors and possibilities! Look at the new Christmas line...
birds! Quirky! Fun stripes! Fresh off the bolt, Mama likeeeee!
I also loved these flamingo measuring cups seen in Boulder... 
If they hadn't cost $32 bucks I would have brought them home to move again when we do
I'll do the "Boulder and Barbies" post on Saturday, come back now ya hear?!

More likes to come next time but I also liked...
this new young singer from American Idol... Love her mix of original songs and fresh take on ballads I grew up with!

I really liked finding the Happy Homemaker's blog and link party
She provides words and the linking people fill in the blanks. It was connection, and happy, and fun.

Milo's Moments
I just noticed it was a stuffed poodle!!!
 Hi Y'all, I liked all the street fairs and shopping with Mama in this Boulder shop... except, I wanted that toy and Mama snatched me away before the enormous poodle teeth latched on! 

I thought maybe she'd buy her only poodle a treat but Noooooooooo! 
Still I got lots and lots of pets all the day long. We met a cat, have you ever seen one of those things? 
It came out to meet me but stopped, and I stopped, and just like this picture we both stopped for ever to look at each other... at least 5 minutes. Then for no good reason at all, he started to growl at me! (why I oughta...) but that happens now and then with dogs too and I just turn away. I wanna play, so if somebody is gonna be rude, fuggetaboudit. 
We walked my long poodle legs right off! I drank some water then plopped down on this hill to chew the lid off
 ha ha ha ha! That was fun! sort of like laying down while standing up! I rested while Mama and Daddy waited because that's what they are supposed to do but they don't always do what I tell them but mostly they do. They have good hearts and mean well. 

Now, sit! stay! clickety click on the links to other people keeping it pawsitive today. See ya!

wow Milo you saw the bestest place... oh imagine how we would shred that toys!
the mama loves the sculptures and she would like to have such a bear... that's more impressing than the pink flamingo she bought once ;O)

Sara said...

Oh my - those Christmas fabrics and the pottery!! What's not to like with those? Fairs just offer so much fun things to see and touch.

Michele McLaughlin said...

Great likes! So many things to enjoy! Have a great day!

That door instead of a gate! Love it. I'm envious of your farmer's markets! Ours are pretty lame. LOL. All those flowers and homes are so cool. Great post. mary in Az

I actually don't know where to begin...there are so many things to love here never mind like! I have an alpaca wool hat for winter that is soft and so warm. I have a thing for china so that bowl stands out and I'm a big poppy fan too. Milo is getting out and about himself...such a lucky pup.

Shannon said...

That pottery is really cool! And so are the poppies. We don't have them here, and I love seeing new flowers. Hugs to Milo!

For me there is nothing quite like a good farmer's market. Always such great stuff. Thanks for linking up today and I hope you have a great holiday weekend!

Patti said...

Enjoy your Thursdays very much. Any chance you got the line that the Christmas fabrics where from? Love them. said...

Great fabrics. Oh the outdoor fairs look wonderful. I like the Flamingo cups too. Poor Milo that cat was pawsitively rude.

LA Paylor said...

I don't have your email patti but the line is by Andover, it's called holiday Tweets and there is a free pattern download on their site.
A Quilter's Corner in Erie CO could package up a set for anyone interested.

Wow, Leeanna, that's a lot of likes!!! I am a huge fan of farmer's markets - we have four in our area, all on different days of the week … many of them have live music, too. Yippee, summer is here and the livin' is easy!!! Thanks for hosting!

Lady Fi said...

Wow - that cloud! Awesome.

That's a dynamic looking storm cloud!! I had a neighbor that was a professional potter and did raku. I like the look of those pieces on display!

I'm sitting, Milo! I'm sitting. I'm staying. But my dog wants me to take her outside, and you know who's the boss, right? Hug your mama for me.
