Great legs

How cool is this moth? If you click on it you can see the little spots
on it's wings look like eyes to scare off predators. 
Of course this was on our tenants window so I hope she didn't think I was 
doing something weird.

On Father's day husband and I took a new hike, the pay off
was pretty amazing. This is Squam lake where on Golden Pond was filmed.

I just wish it had been a clearer day but still pretty.

This is my dump find today. It is not very large and how cute
would it be with a hooked top????

But look at these legs! It is a reproduction but still darn cute.
I will be painting or staining depending on what I put on the top.
I am taking a free spice class offered by a local farm here.
It is how to use them in cooking. I am looking forward to some new dishes to cook.
We are off to a friend's house this weekend there may or may not be lobster involved :)
We are also headed to a sand sculpture contest! I have never been so I am looking forward to
 seeing some amazing sculptures.
Have a great weekend!!!

How neat! I would love to see the lake where On Golden Pond was filmed! Good find in the stool, reproduction or not! I'd love some good, fresh lobster, and those sand sculptures should be amazing!

I loved that movie!!! I didn't realize it was filmed by you.
Great stool!!! First of all, I'd try some Old English on the wood. I love that stuff. It will be great with a hooked top.
Hugs :)

That beautiful moth would be a Luna month. We use to catch them and mount them in picture frames. I haven't seen one in years. Where are we meeting for that lobster? Cute stool--I know you will make it beautiful.

One of my fav movies was Golden Pond. How wonerful to hike sround Squam lake.
That Luna moth is amazing ...a few years back one flew in our house I was thrilled when it landed on me ...of course I walked outside so it could fly off safely. Told my little neice they are fairies in disquise ;) luckily she was happy about that

Julia said...

Love the color and patterns on that fancy moth.Nature is so color coordinated.
I remember the film On Golden Pond. How special that you were there.

Lovely little foot stool and I love the carved legs. I think that a hooked top would be awesome.

Now you have my mouth watering for lobster.Have fun at the sand sculptures and don't forget your camera.


Donna said...

Lobster yummm! The moth is colorful and graceful. Our daughter was named after the Chelsea in the Golden Pond movie. I loved that movie but who knew the lake was actually so beautiful??
Thanks for commenting after my long absence.
