Aren't these the most beautiful hanging baskets? They are all around the square in Oberlin, Ohio. I have absolutely no luck with sweet potato vine. For this late in the season, I can't believe how lush they still are.
Oh, weekends just fly by too quickly. Saturday was a little crazy. I was dropping my foster, Marvin, at a dog event while I headed to Malabar Farm for the "In the Spirit of Friends" show. It was a perfect day for an outdoor show. I was supposed to drop Marvin off at 9:30, then it was 10:00, then got pushed back to almost 10:30. So my bud Belinda and I head off to Malabar ~ over an hour away. Well, with the detour we had it was WAY more than an hour. The show was wonderful, but I felt so rushed I really didn't have time to enjoy it. There were some wonderful primitive crafts, great antiques, and LOTS of hooked rugs for sale, along with some gorgeous wool for sale by Alice at Folk Art Primitives and the Ault's.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bobbie from Union Star Primitives (and the Evening Stitcher), Julie from Plum Run Creek and Sherry, from Sherry's Heart. I ran into a few of my hookin' buddies. You can see their picture over at Julie's blog.
I was just too good! I guess it's because I'm still trying to pay for my Townsend cutter (which I absolutely LOVE!!!), so the only thing I bought was some brown wool Alice dyed for me for a rug I'll be making for a Christmas present. Bobbie had the most wonderful small cupboard ~ not antique but made to look old ~ even had square nails. I'm sort of kicking myself for not buying it.
I got back to Oberlin to the dog event 45 minutes before it was over. Oh, yeah. We took a different route home and had another detour and then missed the state route we wanted. Not a good day for driving. I think they thought I wasn't coming back for Marvin...lol! I'm hoping someone met Marvin and fell in love with him. We haven't had too many "issues" lately, but he still does growl at me on occasion ~ so un-pug like!
Today, I took my Mom to a luncheon for a Slovenian lodge she belongs to. Her very small ethnic church is closing, along with a half dozen others in the city. Very sad. I did get lucky though and won the 50/50 raffle, so I have another $78.00 towards my Townsend ;-)
The rest of the day was spent playing catch-up, doing my Mom's laundry, and all those other mundane tasks that need to be done. As usual, the cleaning fairy skipped my house!
For those of you who have asked about Frannie, I got an email from her new mom and she said Frannie is doing great and they love her to pieces. Hooray for Frannie!!!
Thank you all for stopping by. Please come again soon.
Pug hugs :)
