The Winner Biloxi Regatta 1909

This sailboat "Henry M" won the Biloxi Regatta in 1907.
The sender says she wishes her friend was there so they could ride a boat. She keeps the window open from her room hoping to watch the steamers go by. She also sees the races.

Making Angels

Making Angels. I make these all year long using quilt pieces I have left over. Here I made the log cabin pattern sewing strips together. Then I cut out 2 heart shapes, stuff and close using the blanket stitch. A furniture plug or button was used for the head with doll hair glued on the top. Adding embellishments is the most fun.

Rare Postal History Covers Mariposa County U.S.P.O.D.

These packages were sent to different post offices in Mariposa County, but used around the USA.  This is a very scarce postmark of Grant, a town in Mariposa County which I cannot find out much information.  There were many towns with post offices during the Gold Rush.  Much of the land was part of the John C Fremont Land Grant.  On my eBay 5 USPOD Registered Packages on auction. site you will find this envelope and 4 others sale.  Towns besides Grant I am selling is Jerseydale, Indian Gulch, Darrah, and Mt. Bullion.  Some of these towns still exist but no longer have post offices.

Casper the Cat - Snack Time

I started putting little snacks outside for Casper on an old board used as a storage bench in the garden. I not quite sure how it started but he expects food everday on this board and sits waiting, even though he eats well inside. I try not to leave extra as I have caught raccoons and possoms eating the left overs at night. Even the scrub jay grabs a bite now and then. Why is that everyone loves sharing pictures of their pets? Especially on facebook! Ah but we love our pets.

Vintage RV Travel Trailer.

Love this old trailer. It is amazing how many old trailers and RVs you see parked in vacant lots and abandoned houses. I would love to paint and fix this trailer up, and I bet the inside must really be neat. This photo was taken on Route 66 in Arizona.
