My grandmother kept clippings from books, newspapers and other sources in a little yellow box. I share them here at Inez’s Clippings. Click here to see the original post and the list of other published clippings.
Have you ever tried to remove the briers? Once they are gone, there are no weeds underneath (because they have choked them out) leaving a good path. A little extra effort can go a long way to finding your daily blessings.
This Sunday I’m sharing some of my ‘sunbeams’ in pictures. I hope you’ll enjoy.
Last week I shared some Thursday Doors promoting our flag, Ol’ Glory. This week I’m finishing off the pictures shared with me by my youngest daughter. Always appreciative of the door photos donated (door-nations) as my days can be pretty hectic. Before I continue, I’ll tell you a little bit more about the town of Boonville, Missouri.
Boonville’s population in 2010 was over 8,000 according to the census. The name is from the sons of Daniel Boone, Nathan and Daniel Morgan, who started a salt business near there. Being along the Missouri River aided delivering their goods to St. Louis and they started referring to the trail as Boone’s Lick. A point east of Boonville was considered the beginning point of the Santa Fe Trail. It has around 400 buildings on the National Historic Register and I hope to present some more of them to the Thursday Doors fans in the future. Til then, here are a few that I hope you’ll enjoy.
To those who may not be able to see the slideshow, here’s the pictures in a gallery format. I am not sure why it’s viewable to some and not others as I’m not a tech savvy blogger so this is my solution 😉 Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
It’s Storytime this Sunday! This mini book was a bonus if you purchased a certain brand of bread back during the Depression Era. It may even be post Depression Era as I could not find much information on this item. The closest thing I found was another booklet with no correct link to its origin. Frustrating–but knowing Grandma’s time frame of collecting clippings, I am tacking on a range from 1925 to 1940 as a possible publishing age. It could even predate this period. Anyone with more information, feel free to correct me or validate my opinion. In the meantime, enjoy this piece from Inez’s Clippings.
I hope you enjoyed this little fairy tale from the little yellow box containing Inez’s Clippings. And now a favorite quote of mine as I conclude …….
"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island." – Walt Disney
The collection today is a sequel of my daughter’s drive through Mid-Missouri last Tuesday and this particular set is from Boonville, Missouri. This town along the Missouri River is mostly high above on the river bluffs and so largely saved from the ravages of flooding thankfully. It has quite a few lovely old homes and I was delighted when Kirsten took some door shots for me.
Friday, June 14 is Flag Day in the U.S. and the collecton today features Old Glory in various ‘poses’. Hope you enjoy!
Sunday afternoon is being filled to the rim this weekend. Listening in to the church service, sewing on various projects and then some yardwork. Before I get to the sewing stuff, I’ll share with you an Inez Clipping that’s appropriate for the moment.
Grandma evidently needed some adult humour to get her through those days of teaching in a one-room school house. After 27 years in childcare, I can relate!
And speaking of sewing, the season of craft shows will be here before I know it. So spending the extra time working on stocking up has to happen. Along with all the other events and ‘must-do’s’ that come with summertime, when I get a free moment, I’ll be in the basement, keeping cool and using up my stash of fabric. Here’s a sneak peak of some of my stuff….
Maybe you’ve been keeping up with all the rainy weather, storms, and flooding. Or maybe you’ve been ignoring the news. Or you are just possibly living on an island separated from all cares in the world. Whatever the case may be, I’ve some watery pics this week of the Missouri River out of its banks…. again.
Living in low-lying areas, bottoms as we refer to them here, one expects some flooding. But with these massive events you can’t help but to be in total awe of Mother Nature. There are so many affected this year that it boggles the mind. Our thoughts and prayers to all in these areas no matter which part of the world you’re in.
In the meantime, I hope you can enjoy the beauty found in the scenes captured by my daughter this past Tuesday afternoon.
And hoping this video will work.
Thursday Doors comes to you through Norm 2.0 every Thursday. We join him by adding our own set of doors each week. Please take a couple minutes to visit Norm and a few of the other participants for some wonderful door views from around the world.
Inez’s Clippings is a page on my blog with entries based on a small yellow box of collected newspaper clippings belonging to my grandmother Inez Hunter. Click the ‘Inez’s Clippings’ tab above to read more entries as they are published. Thanks so much for visiting!
The world is full of medical advice these days and everyone is Googling to see what is wrong with them or someone they know. I often wonder what folks from days-gone-by would have thought of this access to so much information. Most people tend to want to look for freebies whether rich or poor. You can’t blame them with the cost of living. A little glimpse this Sunday of my grandmother’s humorous view on the topic of Something for Nothing.
