This little guy would have gotten in the car with anyone that would have let him. He was too tame. I think someone has been feeding him.
A sampling of the deer we saw. They were gorgeous.
Nothing else on earth like a weekend in the Smokies! We attended the Hackney Food Show, shopped till we dropped, went down the HUGE waterslide at Wilderness At The Smokies (not once but TWICE). We drove through Cades Cove Sunday afternoon. It's so beautiful along that 11 mile loop.
My grandmother's (Ma's) rolling pin is one of my prized possessions. You can tell from the pictures that it was hand-carved. Not one of those store-bought versions, like mine. However, I received mine as a wedding gift 29 years ago. So I guess mine is an antique as well. I actually used Ma's to roll out the dumplings Easter since I had loaned mine to Julie. It doesn't "roll" as good as mine. It seems to have an almost flat spot on it. It felt nice to actually use it. I wondered what all Ma had used it for. Probably dumplings, pie crusts, biscuits, etc. If I close my eyes, I can just smell all the fresh baked things. Do you have a rolling pin that is a family heirloom too?
A monogrammed tea towel just for me. That is unusual. Most of the time it is something that someone else has ordered. Want one? Just leave me a comment on this post. If you don't have a sign in, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org I will draw for one free one with your choice of letter and letter color. Keep checking to see who the winner will be. ;-)
I am working on a size 12 month hand-smocked bishop as a surprise for someone. I should be finished in a day or two. I need to add a few pink rosebuds then finish the construction of the dress.Depends on how busy my evenings become this week as to when I will finish. I'll be sure to show you the finished product.
The blanket and burp cloth are for Benny and Vanessa Cannon's new granddaughter Cheyann. Best wishes to all!
So glad it's Friday. Why do we live for the weekends? The river behind the house is HUGE and muddy this morning from all the rain yesterday. No fishing this weekend. Maybe a little shopping for Easter clothes for the kids.
Our son Clint turned 21 yesterday! Happy Birthday!!!!! His sis, Julie, thought he needed the crazy "guitar" glasses since he plays the guitar. We had a good time just visiting and eating lasagna and salad. I hope it was a good birthday for you Clint!
