For Christmas BFF Belinda had her hubby make me this fun wooden tree. It came to me as shown. Initially I was stumped where to put it (I have WAY to much stuff), but decided if I didn't put the antique chair back here, it would be the perfect spot. I will keep it out and decorate it seasonally. My plan is to make some paper hearts. We'll see if that happens :) Well . . . it just screamed to be sitting on a little hooked mat. Now I have plenty to choose from, but this is the only one that came close to the size needed. It is just a bit too small and needs to be a mat with no real motif.
I headed to the linen box and found the perfect size of linen. I'm not sure where I got this piece of linen, but it is really stiff and I don't much like it, but I will use it and hope I don't have any more of it. Here's the start.
Worms are stored in plastic boxes, so I went to each box and grabbed a handful of worms. I am not choosing worms randomly, but kind of picking and choosing. They range in size from a very skinny size 8 to 9 1/2. The finished size of the mat will be about 13" x 29".
I posted the picture of my heart rug in front of the oak washstand on Facebook and a couple people wanted to see what the whole thing looked like so I will share with you, too. And yes, my bathroom is pink and pink is one of my least favorite colors. Maybe some day it will get changed, but it is not a priority. Oh, and that tile is plastic . . . and the ceiling is even tiled. UGH :(
Cindy seems to be doing well, but she has decided to boycott the water bowl. I even tried different bowls and filtered vs unfiltered water. What the heck??? Since I know she needs to stay hydrated, I have been feeding her small portions of the chicken and rice and adding water to it. She is gobbling it down so I know she is getting the water she needs. If only they could talk . . .
Here are both the girls with DSO this evening. That's Cindy on his lap and Ernestine in front.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
