I've read that if I blend up some yogurt and moss and put it on the hut, it will start to grow moss of its own. I was also told that yogurt alone would do the trick. I bought the yogurt, now just need to do it.
The frog hut was purchased a couple weeks ago at a great antique/primitive sale that my hooker friend Karin told me about. I got there about an hour after the sale started and found out after the fact that you really need to be there when the doors open to find the real treasures. She said it is wall to wall people at that time, but by the time I arrived, the crowd had thinned. Of course I still managed to pick up a few things.
Here's a piece from an old overshot coverlet I purchased...
...and a great little brown crock. I also picked up a couple 48 star American flags to add to my collection.
LUCKY ME!!! I won a give-away from Pat at Hook, Hand and Heart. Pat is probably the most talented lady I have met in blogland. She is an amazing hooker, dyes the most incredible wool, weaves, is a former designer of cross stitch samplers, and who knows what else. This dish towel was woven by Pat. It's cotton and butter soft. It feels so good to the touch. It is much too beautiful to be used as a lowly dish towel! The soap is another creation of hers. I can't wait to try it. Please stop by her blog. She always has something interesting to say! Thank you so much Pat!!!
Here's a recent picture of Eema. She looks so grey in this picture! She is as sweet as ever.
The bugs have returned to northern Ohio. The lake flies (aka sand flies and what I call midgies) have been around for a couple of weeks. Today's hatch was larger size-wise than normal. AND...the first of the Canadian soldiers were out today. Oh, the joys of living near Lake Erie!
It was a gorgeous day here on Ohio's north coast. Rather than doing some much needed yard work, I picked up my grandson Jake and took him swimming. He doesn't know how to swim yet, but has no fear. I can't take my eye off of him for a second. Of course I had forgotten my camera :(
That's it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by and please come again soon.
Pug hugs :)
