Welcome to this week's list of likes! I guess I enjoyed how pretty the 4" of snow was in the back yard on Sunday. (I can't believe I got the series number wrong! It's #115 but can't change it now!)
Luckily we went to a craft show on Saturday. I'll show you a few pictures, and although I interviewed several people about their inspiration, I forgot some of it.. I laughed at this booth of crocheted hats...
the maker said her favorite one was a gray one for an older woman! Her friend dared her to wear it to church so she did!
I liked this booth of barbed wire items...
Bob's barbed wire. Check out the Christmas tree! The owner's sister was booth sitting, and said he used what he had to make stuff with!
He also makes these horseshoe flowers! And Angie... a horseshoe Moose you need for your new digs!
DH bought a thin wood book mark. There were about 40 varieties, so it took a while to decide and the maker knew each tree's name. I chatted to him about his work... I asked how he chose to work with wood. His wife carves boxes. He told me his great grandfather was a wood worker, his grandfather was a pattern maker, his father worked with wood and made patterns and he works with wood.
A pattern maker carves an item from wood, to be used to form a crevice for metal tools to be built.
He says, wood is available, you don't need too many tools and they last a long time, and well, he's always been around wood.
I bought a thin copper bracelet made by a woman who lives fairly near me. She likes to work with metal in her basement but also weaves beaded jewelry upstairs. Her studio gets very messy in show season but she tidies it up in the winter. I got her card and hope to visit her studio and do a post on her work.
I loved seeing this bird in the snowy berry tree... you have to really hunt for it. It's near the white frame of the garage.
Earlier that week when it was Fall, I noted this yard with spotlights that looked like the yard was looking back at me!
I liked quilting the borders of my web quilt and getting the binding and sleeve on this weekpost HERE) this week
I liked my Sunday Story this week, and would love more people to read them Post here
I liked that the garage door, that has broken twice in a month, possibly got repaired. The repair guy this time said they put the hinges on wrong (for 13 years) causing it to catch on the house. Now it smells like chemicals in there but hope springs eternal that it will eventually stop smelling.
My heart goes out to the people of California, who despite a certain leader's comments, did not cause nor deserve this natural disaster. I LOVE California, it's food, it's movies, it's wine, it's flowers and beauty, especially it's people.
HUH? It's Thursday already?
Heh, heh, well I was doing one of my favorite things... helping Mama!
I noticed she had put all the sparkle water in the fridge and the empty box was there waiting for recycling... and... that's where "Party Poodle" comes in!
Oh and I liked playing with little Murphy this week. I spied him down the block and took off running to make sure Mama didn't get confused and want to go home
Please visit these people keeping it pawsitive this week too!
