Vintage Thingies Thursday or What's So Special About Friday?

If you would like to see other bloggers' thingies, pop over to Coloradolady's blog. I got this cutting board at an antique store , and I think it's so cute, but I would like to know what is so special about Friday gardening?! I'm out there every day, pulling weeds, watering, praying, sweating, swearing, getting bit by mosquitoes. So I ask you, what is so special about Friday gardening??
Well, if this is what you see while gardening, on any given Friday, then I guess Friday Gardening is pretty special!

You need to click on the one below, to enlarge it. It's a dragonfly.

Seems we share the same love for flowers. When I am out and about, I am always admiring the flowers along the way. Your post was truly refreshing. Thanks for visiting me today.

You have done a great job of capturing the garden critters in pictures. That cutting board is pretty cute too!

Your garden is really pretty and so is that cutting board...but the prettiest thing is your cat dressed up! What a hoot!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful flower pictures. I love the one with the dragon fly.
I'm not sure what the chopping board is all about but as Postcardy mentioned, maybe they had a board for each day of the week with some other chore on it! Whatever it means, it is a very nice board.

Lisa said...

WOW love your Bugs!! The flowers are lovely and your vintage kitchen stuff is yummy!
Hugs, Lisa

Oh, how I love dragonflies. They are starting to hatch around here. Love to see all the different kinds of them.
I agree with you about "Friday Gardening". I'm out there everyday. But..., back in the day they had "Monday Wash Day" and "Thursday Cleaning" so I guess things were more structured then.
Cute cutting board though...

Joan said...

How pretty your garden looks and the bugs are pretty cute too. You got to love those mosquito eating dragonflies.

mannequin said...

I feel bad. My weeds are all overgrown and you're so industrious :)
Your garden is lovely!

I love the little lady on the cutting board. Her style is so...unexpected!

SueLovesCherries said...

LOVE the cutting board! Today is Friday and I was out gardening! Where else would I be!

Caths Pennies Designs said...

Hmm.. Friday gardening ... why is it special ... hmmm ... I think a better question is Why the heck is that woman gardening while wearing her red polka dot dress!?!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Really enjoyed your post. I am a nut about flowers and working in my yard. That is a neat cutting board, and not many like it around today.
