Before I left for my hooking weekend my tulips were all pink buds. I told my husband that when I get home they should be all open and beautiful. well this is what I found, yep just the stem. we had no idea what happened or what did it. So I googled it SQUIRRELS did it. they love tulip blooms! But not daffodils so I will never plant tulips again! Oh I am so mad! Then my husband put all the screens in and found blood on a windowsill 2 stories up. I had no idea what it was from and it was a bit creepy. I was putting things in the spare bedroom closet and I hear bang, bang, bang. I look and there is a robin repeatedly flying into a large half round window that is at the peak of our house. I try to scare him or her away but no luck it kept coming back and doing the same thing. I google again. The robin sees it's reflection and thinks its another bird and is trying to scare it away or fight it. and it will kill itself doing this yikes. So what to do all I have is halloween things to put in the window an owl, pumpkin, and a witch. No more robin, I think he thought it was halloween and flew south:) God knows what my neighbors think when they walk by.
This is a dump find. She looks like a good hardy farm wife I just couldn't leave her in the dump.
Thrift store 2 real pasymina's a dollar each.
I also got some new chairs for the porch. There is a set of two I love them so comfy and from a resale shop. The watering can is holding 3 new kid tools I got at the hook in. They go nicely with the rest of my collection.
In my antique travels I found 2 pieces of the pottery I am collecting. this a good size casserole and I got a little shell dish that would make a great soap dish.
Here is the rug I am working on. It is small but for some reason I hate it. I have pulled more wool out of this than I have in all the rugs I have ever hooked. I just am not feeling what I have done. First I hate the tan house out it comes. I am open for suggestions. I am thinking maybe it is the smaller cut.
Well I am long winded tonight so I will close with a quote: I really didn't say everything I said. Yogi Berra
