Vermilion, Ohio, is celebrating their 175th anniversary. Driving to hooking last evening, I spotted these downtown and had to stop and take a look. They had maybe a half dozen of them in a big circle and I was told they were part of the "birthday cake". They were really neat. The bottom of a wine bottle was cut off and was sitting on a pole maybe four feet high. The bottle was filled with little white lights. I bet they look cool at night. The top was a very heavy gauge wire with beads attached. I may just have to drive back when it's dark to take another look.
Katie of Kid'l de Divey Woolens must have been out soliciting hookers last night, because there was a full house at the Chairmaker & Friends. Many of the "ladies" were trying their hand making pumpkins with hand torn strips.
I had a house guest last night. Meet Wilma, an Ohio Pug Rescue pug. She was adopted a couple years ago and her furever mom was having surgery today. I kept her for the night and this evening delivered her to her former foster mom who will pug sit while mom is recuperating and going through rehab. (If you looked up the word "ugly" in the dictionary, you would find a picture of my kitchen floor . . . lol!)
I've previously introduced you to Sam the work cat, our resident mouser. Well, up until today, I have not seen one of those little four legged creatures or any signs of them. (Thank you, God!) Well, early this morning, I am in talking with the boss and another co-worker mentions that Sam has a mouse. Who was it that hated "meeces to pieces"? Was it Tom and Jerry? Well, it's me, too. I won't go in to details, but the mouse soon left the building!!! Not a good way to start the day.
I thought I had made some real progress on my What Nots rug, but after having taken a picture, I am mighty disappointed! Just that little bit to the right. I think I may put aside for a while (AGAIN) and work on Cathy G's (Red House Wool Studio) sunflower rug.
Here are more rugs from the Sauder Village rug show. Because of the lighting in the room (and a lack of photographic skills), some of the rugs appear very washed out. Sorry :(
LOVE the Kinderhook flower basket. I want to hook this . . . some day . . . sigh.
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
