Saturday Morning Post


Variety.....what is it they say about it?.....oh right!
It's the spice of life!
A 'spicy' week it was:


A few of the vintage books at the shop.


Don't see this too often on this final turn to the beach....not from here I bet.


These thread spools are at the shop in Amy's workroom (extraordinaire vintage shop owner).


That's it for the day.


Spooky broken rail down on the boardwalk at night.


Carnival Glass and fabric at the shop.


Rocks, sand, and footprints at sunset.


The 'impressionists' are back at the canal in the Annapolis Valley.


GIANT shadows at the beach before sunset.


Our first time to the canal this summer was last weekend.


I got this limited abstract lithograph at an auction last week.
It is by Johnny Friedlaender who died in Paris in 1992.
It is called 'Chinoiserie Marina'....the original was done in 1955.
Debating if I want to keep this one. What do you think?


Gorgeous evening at the beach.


Done for the day.


Shadow.


Off duty.

    1. Happy you liked these Mitchell. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess.

  3. Incredible collection of photos this week, Jim! I especially love all the beach shots. And look at what great shape those surfers are in. I imagine it's quite a workout on the waves. Happy Saturday to you three amigos!

    1. I do believe that one must be in reasonable shape to take the beating that the ocean throws at you on a surf board, Martha......not to mention incredible sense of balance.

    1. Thanks Debra. It was like seeing a commercial of these good looking guys walking out of the ocean and shaking their hair out as strolling into the sunset!! It was perfect to get good shots....whether they knew it or not....I think they did though.

  6. What a varied and gorgeous collection. I couldn't resist looking at the titles of your vintage books ~ three of them were well-loved reads of mine: The Robe, The Good Earth, and Tai-Pan. I used to have them all, but Terry has been cracking his Get-Rid-of-the-Books whip for decades! And who can resist those handsome surfers? Terry told me about this photo when you put it up on FB. He's become quite proficient at using my FB account! LOL Have a grew week, my friend! Don't work too hard on Monday! Maybe you can find another insect to keep you hopping!

    1. Thanks Louise. Crack that whip, Terry!! lol
      Those surfers walked out of the water as we were passing along and the sun hit them as they began to walk up the beach dripping wet!! It was a great shot!
      I hope Monday is a little busier than last....but I do have a lot of changing around to do.....take out old items and put in new ones and rearrange things. Always something to do there!! good week to you and Terry too!

  7. Great pictures this week. Like those three guys, haha. Maybe it's the long hair...
    I am not really enthusiastic about the lithograph - doesn't do 'it' for me. (Which probably means it's worthy of keeping)
    I'm seeing shade of autumn creeping along the canal.

    1. Very observant, Ms.Qualls....they 'yellows' are just beginning to show themselves.
      Abstract art is not for everyone. I hope to find the intention the artist had and maybe that would assist me in understanding at least his perspective.
      Like long hair, eh?

  8. Jim, You've outdone yourself with these shots! Don't you love the look of vintage books? I like that abstract - I'd keep and look at it for awhile.

    1. Thanks so much Barb. Vintage books have that look of wear and being settled-in, if you know what I mean.
      Maybe I will hang the abstract for a while......

  12. The carnival glass looks beautiful with the fabric. Asking about the lithograph indicates you're not very attached to it.

    Love,

    1. Yes Janie, the carnival glass looks great there. But it's all going to change tomorrow! Another 'theme' has hit the shops!!! lol Happens often....to change things up.
      Not really attached to it but it has possibilities........

  14. Jim- there is no way I could ever pick a favorite amongst your beautiful images. I love them all-- photos of the vintage treasures are amazing-- and every beach photo you take makes me just say--wow. I love your variety of subjects-- these posts are always my favorites:)
    Love
    Vicki

  15. I still have Pearl Buck's The Good Earth,
    and I remember Tai-Pan being a good read.
    Love that fabric with the red pattern.
    The last picture is my fave.
