So Proud of My Neighbor :)

Rebecca Sower is a neighbor whom I haven't met in person. 

We share a major concern however...and her heart is huge! 
She is a giver.

Something was given to her recently :)
A mighty wind brought a nice rustic piece of tin to her yard! 
She did what any self-respecting blogger would do and put 
antique photos on it with magnets! 

After seeing it yesterday on her blog and wishing for
my own...
I breezed into a junque shop
and found a similar one
(mine is ceiling tin with chippy white paint...and 
if my pics would upload or download or unload, I'd show you). 

I woke up at 3:00 a.m. thinking about Banana Bread, 
and since I had two rotten bananas...
I went ahead and got busy baking.
At three a.m. did you know,
that your two-cup measuring cup looks like a single cup?

It does. 
I put two cups of sugar when there should have been only one.

I'd do it again in a clogged heartbeat too! 
I recommend it to people with compromised immune systems and nursing mothers. 

It is sooo good :)

A beautiful idea! Rebecca Sower is indeed a lovely lady with a very big heart. There is also another lady with a huge heart...I believe they call her Auntie Bliss!:o)

Enjoy a beautiful weekend.

What a great sense of humour you have Auntie Bliss, are you sure you're not an Aussie! Can't have that Banana Bread on MOTH's Biggest Loser diet, but gosh I can dream!

Great idea for the photos! I'll bet that banana bread was great with a cup of tea!

Jojo Caramel said...

That is a great idea! It's totally gorgeous with all these photos on it! and I like all these vintage spools too!
Banana Bread? I have never tasted! It sounds good! Did you put some walnuts inside? ;-)

see you there! said...

First of all, I got a kick out of the new "instructions" under your banner.

The tin roof with pictures idea is great and I enjoyed the blog link.

Have you eaten all the banana bread by now?


Polish and Pearls said...

Oh, what a great idea, those photographs with magnets! What a great way to repurpose some old tin! This is why I love your blog :)

Rose Garden Romantic said...

I love it! I can't wait to see your version of it!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Did you say banana bread???

Jojo Caramel said...

The little gnomes you found are very lovely :)

Kathleen Grace said...

Do you ever wonder if the junk shop owners just shake their heads and laugh at the things we buy? lol, Rebecca's tin sure looks good though. Are you saying you used 4 cups of sugar in your banana bread?! I'd eat that!

antiquechase said...

Love this idea. Love Rebecca, she certainly has the look I'm after... time and time again!!

Thanks for sharing!

PS did you ever post yours? Maybe I missed it.

Reading back through your old posts - what a wonderful blog! I had stopped by as I was so touched that you donated today and was so happy you had left a message as I didn't know how to get in touch with you when I saw your name on the donation. How funny that this post makes mention of banana bread! It had caught my eye as I loved the vintage photos!
Thanks so much for your kindness Phyllis - it is so very appreciated.
All the best,
