what the?????

i showed you in my last post how i have been canning the tomatoes out of my neighbor's garden.  they are away and i have been picking the ripe vegetables out of their garden so they don't rot.  i showed the beautiful bounty i reaped 
and what i did with it for them...
curtis and don are very (friendly) competitive when it comes to their gardens. they start them from seeds in early spring and every year, there is a competition to see who can grow the biggest pumpkins.  we plant mostly the same kinds of  tomato plants....lots of heirloom tomatoes and big red, juicy ones.

well, i picked again from curtis's garden on saturday morning and got
this....
don picked the tomatoes from our garden saturday morning and got
this....
huh???????
looks like we aren't even in the running this year!!!

I am completely in love with your projects!! I just found some furniture that I was planning on doing what you do to and was looking for some inspiration. I found it!! Also, I am completely in LOVE with your blue sofa. Do you happen to know who made it or any information on where I might find one like it. It is seriously the sofa of my dreams! Thanks for all your postings and I am looking forward to seeing more and learning how to do all you do!
