It was a busy day at the Green Center with the usual collection of wonderful items.

Isn't this a lovely gift for a dog lover?

Elegance at the Green Center

We should host a fashion show featuring clothing that appears at the Center

We get a number of water fountains such as this one

With this parasol all is needed a is rum based tropical drink

An entire forest!

We have the shirt at the Green Center. The Pyroman Spectacular was an event to remember, right here in New Ipswich.

A pillow that looks like a UFO. I wish it was a hat.

The Green Center will be open June 24, 2017 from 9-12

Two frogs and a toad

Dress as gypsy fortune teller

Kitty models a cocktail dress

Just the item for my next formal event
I'll give a review when I finish this book which arrived. This house is located in New Ipswich

We have teething rings (not the bracelet)

The Green Center is a museum of old technology including digital cameras

I found a Himalayan Salt Lamp which is supposed to deal with all the electronic smog from my computer. There is a lot of pseudo-science in the user manual but it does look nice.
These photos were taken with the Sony MVC-FD200 FD Mavica

This is an interesting camera, it can store photos on a floppy disk as well as a memory stick. However I was unable to format the  disk.

I'll be returning the camera to the center, but the toad is staying with me

This is a first for the Green Center, a  devotional scapular

Devotional scapulars are objects of popular piety, primarily worn by Roman Catholics, as well as some Anglicans and Lutherans, designed to show the wearer's pledge to a confraternity, a saint, or a way of life, as well as reminding the wearer of that promise.[5] Some devotional scapulars bear images, or verses from scripture. Devotional scapulars typically consist of two rectangular pieces of cloth, wool or other fabric that are connected by bands. One rectangle hangs over the chest of the wearer, while the other rests on the back, with the bands running over the shoulders. Some scapulars have extra bands running under the arms and connecting the rectangles to prevent them from getting dislodged underneath the wearer's top layer of clothes. ~ Wikipedia

It was Dads and Grads day at the Green Center on Saturday. However for some reason fancy tea cups made an appearance. Here are some photos.

The dad corner seemed to have a beer theme, as well as some grilling tools. Happy Fathers Day to all the dads.
Need a graduation gown? The Center has several.

If you like bright colors, this candy dish is the one for you.

Tea time with sugar and fancy spoons.

I had no idea what this was till Ethel explained it was a cookie press.

A bin of Barbies.

Tea time with some style.

A bit of a Southwest motif in the Green Cenrer.

Boulder Trail

Support this blog by using this Amazon Link

I has a nice day with Owen Richards watching nesting Blue Herons in Dublin, NH. This is the time I wish I had a HUGE telephoto instead of a simple bridge camera.

Boulder Trail is a great name for this place

Nice day to visit

EVERY tree had signs of beavers
Such a large bird, this is where I wish I had a monster lens

Lots of drama with geese
The Herons would get up to move their eggs

I need to return when the chicks hatch

We found the trail head on the way out 
Not a good place to drive, we hiked in

Owen had a monster lens, he posted his photos on Facebook

Here is a quick recap of some of the items that were available at the Green Center on Saturday.  Our next scheduled opening is May 20th. We are closed on Mother's Day weekend.

Just in time for Graduation
There were plenty of items for Mother's Day

Someone finally took these nice chairs, we have a bit more room now

The Green Center is a time machine, I remember when we had milk delivered in glass bottles

My favorite items have he stamp AS SEEN ON TV

Another nostalgia item, a cap for a recyclable soda bottle

These engines were invented in 1816

Stirling Animation.gif

A thing of the past, correction tape, almost as good as white out
After the Stirling Engine, build a steam engine

Sadly this was broken

Cute and brand new
This was an  interesting item, a  surveyors scale

I thought it was a "mouse" but is actually a USB hub

This is different

Nice Plate

This has seen better days. Maybe some friction tape to patch it up?

Jadite? something new to learn about
