Obsidian - Be a Contrarian thinker

Recently I bought a book through Networking Times, it is a very thought provoking and insightful read on the state of the world economy and has a lot of suggested answers to todays problems.

Back in the day there was a terrific department store; Woodwards. Its been gone for about 20 years now. Sure miss that store.

Obsidian Arrow Heads; the antler is used to form and sharpen. These are made by my friend John Heron.

  1. You always have such interesting photos and posts!
    I especially liked your 'Faith and Flowers' pic!

  2. your blueberries bed redo makes me think I gotto redo mine and get them ready for next spring

  3. Like the arrowheads. You mean that the antler is hard enough to shape stone?

  4. Your post is so creative and your photography is wonderful ~ Lots of info! ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

  5. There are so many 'back in the day' Shops that are now gone and I miss terribly. Often on my Junquing Adventures I come across some of the Reminders from those Shops and it brings back a Rush of Nostalgia. Recently a Friend of mine 'Scored' some of the Vintage Canvas hand-held Shopping Baskets from Woolworths and it made me realize just how long it had been since the last one closed Shop here in the Valley... I sure do miss THAT store and wish it were something my G-Kids could have experienced.

  6. Hello Rob,
    So you are a Canadian blogger too; nice to meet you! Welcome to my HOME party. I have a son who lives in Vancouver with his family who we will be seeing over the holidays. I like your faith and flowers collage; very pretty. Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend.


  7. Such great photos as always Rob! How wonderful to grow your own blueberries!

  8. That book sounds interesting. The economy definitely needs some answers. And more folks could do with living a simple, sustainable life. The arrowheads are lovely. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  9. I'll have to check out that book, Rob.

    Oh, how I miss the department stores of my youth! All gone now - either disappeared completely or taken over by big, boring corporations. So sad.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  10. I'm here from Mockingbird Hill and following you now. I want to see how that blueberry patch comes out! ~ Maureen

  11. A fun eclectic mix of favorites...I like the arrowheads ! I like everything in your post but the fact that someone is making them now is quite interesting! : )

  12. Oh I love, love that Faith and Flowers mosaic! Thanks so much for sharing with Share Your Cup. The book sounds like it would be very interesting.


Thanks for your kind comment.
