Sunday Selections # 516

 Long, long ago, in days of yore...Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections. 

A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please. 

Nothing rude or vulgar though.

The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.

It's possible Elephant's Child may not participate this week, as she is a little under the weather.


it seems Meg shares my love of rock/pop music


listening to Baccara

"Yes, I can Boogie"


"all that dancing has made me hungry, mmm, rockmelon" (canteloupe)


I had a burst of energy and cleaned several layers of dust off the furniture


look at that shine!

meanwhile, out in the fairy/gnomes gardens,

 
the new Cactus Bar is ready for customers


while on the clifftop above, the smaller Saloon already has a happy chappy resting outside


this one is known as The Lone Hat Saloon. Legend has it an old cowboy drank his well-earned beer, then lay down to rest under the shade of a cactus, where he then died. He was buried out the back and his hat placed upon the cactus as a memorial. Every few years, as the hat weathers and disintegrates, it is replaced with a new one.


at the base of the cliff, a little further along, The Mushroom Farm is going gangbusters!

More next week  😀

    1. Granny Annie; I wrote my comment and forgot to click on "publish" D'Oh! I did a bit of bopping around myself while the music was on.

  2. A nice harvest of mushrooms coming along. I like the tale of the lone hat saloon. And I feel sorry for EC. Hope she'll return in top form again.

    1. Charlotte; I made up the Lone Hat story right after I loaded the picture.

  3. I love the cactus bar and the cowboy story. Meg's outfit is similar to Minnie's. I have been trying to make her pyjamas but have not yet succeeded. I did a bit of dusting today too. I am always amazed at how quickly the dust builds up!

    1. Sarah; most of Meg's clothes are bought, although I do have plans to make some. I just need to get to a thrift store and buy a few cheap things for the fabrics I want. You'd see a lot of dust if you lived in an Australian country town like the one I grew up in. Red dust and when a dust storm blows in even sealing your house does no good, it gets in everywhere. Thankfully I no longer live there.

  4. Of course Meg shares your love of music - yet another reason she is happy to live with you.
    Love that shine on those surfaces. Something I need to do.
    And thank you. I am not right yet, but better than I was.

    1. Elephant's Child; thanks for dropping in. Meg certainly does fit right in here. Take care, please.

  5. "I dusted once and it came right back. Won't catch me doing that again." Just kidding--from a wall hanging I once had.
    Always enjoy visiting with Meg and to know music is a big part of her day.

    1. Arkansas Patti; I remember sayings like that. There was one about vacuuming being such a chore, you do the whole house and six months later you have to do it again!
      Meg is sleeping late today, she stayed up with me last night while I couldn't sleep.

  6. You put me to shame, River! I've reached for my blinkers so I don't see the dust and cobwebs here!!! It's a long time since I've heard that song...now it will he in my swirling around in my head all day!! :)

    Have a great coming week...keep boogie-ing! Cuddles to the lovely Lady Lola. :)

    1. Lee; don't feel any shame on my account, I don't clean like this all the time. I still have that song in my head too, must be time to turn the music back on and hear something different.

  7. That certainly is a gleaming timber surface and with a clever placement of your blog name on the blackboard.

    1. Andrew; I wondered if anyone would notice that placement :)
      That is a cheap Ikea chest of drawers that I stained/painted a few years ago. You might remember when I blogged about the mess it caused me.

  8. Gorgeous.
    Your mind is wonderful.

  9. I'm going to say that Meg put on her Boogie Shoes. [Like the song by KC and the Sunshine Band.] Your dusting was world class. You deserve a gold medal! The Mushroom Farm also deserves a medal for its bumper crop!

    1. Val; I remember that song. I haven't heard it in a while, it isn't on any of my playlists. I gave myself a pat on the back for the dusting, my budget doesn't run to gold medals.

  10. Ohhh, thank you, I turned up the music at once (Adriano Celentano).
    Hmmm, melon and a Cactus Bar!
    Oh, poor guy. The mushrooms remind me of the Schlümpfe, the Smurfs...

    1. Iris Flavia; I haven't thought about the Smurfs in a long time.

  11. Meg is having a ball and I love those mushrooms!

    1. WWW; Meg does love life. The mushrooms are very bright among all the green out there.

  12. You have a lovely little world there!

  13. Oh no! Don't trust gnomes - they want to take over the world.

    ;o)

    Cheers

    1. Plasman; my gnomes are quite happy where they are and have no plans for taking over anything, they are much too comfortable and lazy to be wanting all the work that is involved with takeovers.

  14. Meg! What a sweet idea! Alex Cavanaugh has a Ninja which might catch Meg's attention. Maybe I can find some leprechauns .

    1. Susan Kane; I think Meg would like some Ninja and Leprechaun friends.
