I can tell you really enjoyed meeting my German rabbits! Yes, they are wonderful and always displayed somewhere that the cats can’t reach because they’re very fragile. And if you enjoy looking at stuff like that I have much more to show you – this could take all winter!!!
Love the muted colors here.
The following is a description and pictures of one of my favorite small cupboards.
See how the doors are thicker at the bottom? These doors are actually made from a wood shingle!
The “top” of this cupboard was made from a crate and the bottom “legs” were hand cut and added later.
It’s downright amazing that it has survived!
Two of the houses are by the same maker. I’d love to find more of them. I also have some hand carved animals that I’ll photograph and show you.
This brings me to some new rules about the blog. I know you enjoy it but I would also enjoy it more if you, the Readers, shared more about YOUR life. My life is an open book and I entertain you all the time and all you do is read it and 99.9% of you never once have left a comment. I let the blog “sit” right after it crashed even though Kayla fixed it right away thinking surely somebody will email me to find out if something is wrong. Only one person out of approx. 3500 sent me an email so you can see why I question whether it’s worth it or not. I won’t promise to answer every comment in the future but some feedback would be helpful. If you ask me a question, don’t forget to look for my answer in the comments section.
On to more interesting things. Here is the Dirty Dozen list so far this year.
Recently someone asked for the “best t-shirt quilt pattern” so I thought I’d post this again. It truly is the BEST!
Here are the reader quilts:
Here’s another little drawer unit – the square pulls are hand carved.
Also made from a wooden crate. Very primitive.
So I’ve shown you the white pitchers, the little houses and cupboards, the rabbits, the sewing caddies and the other big collections are the pincushions and the dog pictures. I’m cleaning another small area today – small animal figurines. My mom always gave me a cat for Christmas and I have many others – nothing but dust collectors but I’ve loved these animal friends for years!
Rick update – wound is looking much better – my nursing duties continue twice a day. If I had to make a living being a nurse, I’d starve to death! They have my deepest and utmost respect! We’re headed back to Mayo early tomorrow morning – first appointment is 7:30 am! We’re about the same distance away from Rochester as is Jo who has been there for several days. We are extremely lucky to live this close to one of the premier medical clinics in the world!
Don’t forget the football game tonight! I really missed Yellowstone last night but watched All Creatures Great and Small which I also loved. This has been a very long post – thanks for reading!
