Have you ever come home from shopping and just wanted to set your goodies out and enjoy them for a while? I bought a couple of things from my favourite gallery (gregory's studio of wonders) which ALAS is closing down by the end of next week :( A fellow blogger here wrote a beautiful entry about Gregory's Gallery and it's closing.
I was so pleased with my finds because I have had a yen to get me some vintage fabric for a while now for a home project (will show you in another blog entry). Not sure what I am going to do with the vintage doll head yet, but for now she's in my rhubarb patch. If you click on the rhubarb link by the way you will learn this little fascinating little snippet from history.
"The Guangzong emperor (1620-1621) is miraculously cured from some severe illness he got after having had a joyful time with four "beautiful women" sent to him by a high official, cured with rhubarb, naturally"
Love how they word it :)
A HIKE IN THE GLEN: We took a hike this morning and I was reminded of our last few hikes there. We were on a trail when rufus stopped dead in his tracks. He was agitated and growling and wouldn't move forward on the trail. The air was very still, the hair on my neck was standing on end and I got goosebumps. Kinds of spooks you out when an animal is spooked and you can't see why. I was beginning to think there was a spirit or a presence on part of the trail that was once roamed by the miami or shawnee. We picked him up and walked past the spot. The next week same thing happened in the same spot only he started to bark towards something, so we moved in that direction and he barked more. WEll, LOL! we realized what it was. Not a spirit, not a ghost, but a newly fallen tree that was hollow. For a 6lb yorkie it must have looked like an animal with a gaping mouth. I have never seen a dog growling under his breath walk past a tree so fast in my life.
PS: Don't know why but I've got it in my head that this winter I must have a red handbag and a pair of red boots.
