Welcome to this week's list of likes!
I liked this bowl with a poodle in Fall enough to buy it despite having to pack and move it cross country!
If you like it too, I got it at Pier One. I also loved a lot of their current furniture and when we settle if there is any money left for furniture, I will go see what's there.
I forgot I liked Pier One!
And they welcomed Milo in Columbia whereas the Pier One in Annapolis said, no dogs! In a shopping center connected to condos that have many many dogs living in them. Hmmm... smart?
Milo was the epitome of quiet calm poodle in there, merely looking at the displays as we walked by.
I Like this bracelet I purchased from an artist on our recent trip out West.
It's stainless steel, and has daisies and is easily put on and taken off as it opens totally. Love!
Since I had to go to a hotel to avoid the mosquito spray this week, Milo and I took a little trip up to Hinkletown Sewing in Penn. Many of us in the Baltimore area go all the way to this shop for the great service and deals on machines. They are always ready to help me into a new machine! I'd love to!
While my machine was being serviced, we stopped in a little garden center where I saw this topiary...
Milo and I were both thankful and relieved this person didn't totally run us down at the garden center
springwaterdesigns quilt shop in Columbia
I don't often work with a jelly roll but all their fabric was 25% off ! I also purchased this panel for fall,
and there is a free pattern using it and fall leaves blocks.
And I also chose this fat quarter with words I need to remember myself...
I really liked this hand work piece Linda is working on.
She used hand dyed wool in a setting like the modern mosaics, and is allowing her creative spirit to lead her to the stitches and the threads, beads, and extras she sews on.
She said she is focused on the process so slow is great, and if she changes her mind mid stream she goes with that too. She believes a piece should show the hand of the maker, so she does strive for balance but not "perfection" It is an amazingly detailed piece...
I am enjoying this book by one of my fave authors, Julie Garwood. Modern day mystery/romance. Easy to read and engaging characters as well as storyline.
Milo and I are both relived Daddy made it up the treacherous ladder
Milo likes his new bed from pet smart... came with a bone pillow and a blankie all for $39.99, ten buckeroos less than Khols price. He squeezed himself into a corner of it since the pillow was still attached.
Please visit these fine people keeping it positive! If you want to join us, let me know in comments and I'll add your post in too!
