Why is it so hot? Because the State Fair just started and it's always hot this time of year. I'm hoping to go, but I'm not sure I can stand the heat and the crowds and the heat... Anyway, I found some cute how hot is it quotes for you off the internet. Take a look at some of these.
It's hotter than....
a pig on a flapjack.
a firecracker lit on both ends.
the Devil's armpit.
It's so hot.....
you could fry an egg on an ice cube.
the trees are whistling for dogs.
you could roast marshmallows on your belly.
you could eat hot peppers to cool off your mouth.
you can make Instant Sun Tea.
the chickens are laying hard boiled eggs.
It's so hot and humid....
it's like walking through butter.
the mosquitoes are wearing snorkels.
I've been taking showers to dry off.
I had to cover the fish tank to keep the fish in.
Remember when it was like this??? I would love to have just a
bit of this coolness right now!
Maybe these snow scenes will help get you in the mood for a few fun Winter/Christmas things I picked up at some estate sales a few weeks ago. Here is a little sneak peak at what I found. These pictures are not the greatest quality but just a little preview. My husband was holding up some of my finds, those are his fingers in a few of the photos.
Most of the books and art posters where picked from an estate of an elderly man who had been a Pastor. He and his wife had traveled to Sweden and Norway several times and had an
enormous collection of items.
These are poster prints of Swedish artists such as Jenny Nystrom, Erik Forsman and others. I am still researching these. They were purchased between 1955 and 1990. I like to get background information from the estate sellers as it always helps to authenticate items. I think we picked up about 18 of these posters!
I found a few more punch out books and other unusual children's books.
Neat sheet music with fabulous graphics!
At a different sale I found a sweet little salt shaker reindeer
and a darling pink sleigh!
Hope you enjoyed my hot summer sizzle/winter wonderland mashup! As always thanks for visiting!
Have a wonderful and hopefully cool week! I will be inside enjoying my air conditioning until this heat moves on! ~~~ Diane
