  1. Hi Rhonda,
    What a beautiful picture. Now I have a face with a name.

  2. Thanks for stopping by to see my thrifty treasures. Oh my husband went back with the car to get the birdbath! Yes, it's concrete and even though he's in good shape it would have been quite heavy to walk around with it!


  3. That is a lot of food for not much money, way to go.
