Seedy details

Happy Monday to Ya'll!
1st item is my fun project.  I love to keep the birds fed and happy.  My hubby loves big tubs of Utz Prezels.  I also have lots of scrapbook paper and punches, ribbon and love olden china pieces...Wallaaaa...
my fun birdseed tub with china scooper.  I used left-over baby shower paper a friend gave me.  It makes me smile to think of how the birds Zoom in and out of my yard to the feeders.  I've had this odd blue tea cup
set away and my big hand fits in the jar opening.

GT 7th grade social studies class is learning about wartime hardships. 
Apparently, there were troubles getting supplies thru and Texans had to "scrape the barrels". 
They used Okra seeds that they scooped, roasted and brewed for .....Okra Coffee...
I passed on sampling.  Sounds similar to Chickory that LA puts in their coffee.

I Hope you have a blessed blue day.  :D
