In with Old, Out with New, etc...

My very old rug-hooking project returned from my sister's house,
much to Angel's delight!
OLD back IN!

Three boxes of new-to-me, but now old
(because they don't fit!) clothes,
donated to the local women's shelter
NEW/OLD back OUT!

Milkweed pods from our garden.
Cannot wait for the more Monarch butterflies next year!
NEW is NEW!
Seasons change, and what was old is new, what was new is old.  This was the first year that our milkweed plants grow seed pods, and I will scatter the seeds so Eastside Cats has a healthy crop next year.  I have also shared some pods with Rene at It's All About The Cats!

And for you readers who want to see photos of The PO'M...here ya go!  An oldie but a goodie.

I always feel good when I donate and let some old things go.

I am a big fan of October. Our leaves are just starting to change colors. Love the milkweed pods!

We thank you in advance for the milkweed pods. Here's hoping they grow!

I sure am hoping Fall didn't lose her way to NC. We might need to send her the coordinates. Hot Hot Hot today.

Nothing feels better than a roll in the leaves, or so Flynn used to tell me.

Love that picture of POM. I can't remember the last time I saw a milkweed pod. My friend and I used to love opening them and watching the seeds fly away.

That is a great shot of POM. I want to rub that tummy. We have a lot of milkweed around and had many monarchs this year :)

M. K. Clinton said...

PO'M is so cute! That is great you can spread the milkweed pods. Thank you for donating clothes. There is always such a need in every community.

Cleo said...

Hmmm, what do you do with the milkweed pods? Dad's curious. Says where he grew up they were all around the yard. Enjoy this weekend, y'all!

Tamago said...

Paddy is so cute. I wanna rub his belly! He is goodie for sure :-)

The Swiss Cats said...

That rug looks comfy. Nothing better than a good roll in the leaves ! Purrs

Im very impressed wth your milkweed Pods. I can never succeed with them and I want to help the butterflies!

Deziz World said...

Okay, so we're behind and a little lost, but what's the deal with the milkweed? What did we miss? Ya' know, why do ya' want so many weeds? Cuz 'round here, it's really a weed. But, good luck with it. Big hugs

Luv ya'

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We are so impressed with your milkweed pods, we wish our milkweed did better, in fact we don't think any managed to make it this year. Maybe Mommy can get some more milkweed next year or finds some seeds to scatter.

The Indulged Furries said...

I wish we had Monarch butterflies here, there's so pretty. Great photo of Paddy - not a care in the world.

John Bellen said...

Yes, autumn is the time for changes, isn't it? But if the old is as colourful as the rug, the old can stay put - or come back.
