Here are the three new additions to the wall.............
M and I had a great day yesterday. I don't have time to get into all the details, but let's just say that she was exhausted by the end of the day and needed a nap in the car on the way home.
|M having a nap - just can't keep up with the old folks!!!|
But we did see a LOT of cool things. Have you ever wondered what happens to all those afghans knitted/crocheted by many of us or our mothers? We saw this in a store and I thought it was a pretty cool idea..
|Repurposed knitted/crocheted afghans (note there are three on the wall and one below in the middle). Should have gotten a better picture cause the style was different - crap - have to go back|
|I think they were attached to foam??? and then put together in this shape and a frame put around the entire piece. They were NOT sewn to each other.|
|The other two afghan art pieces|
This store - Urban Planet - I think that was the name also had these braided rag rugs for sale. My picture is a bit blurry, but how fun are these!!!! They also had RAG rugs for sale. Looks like they took strips of cloth and just tied them through a canvas. Gosh - I just threw a big box of t-shirt scraps out. That could have made a good rug for the dogs!!!!!

Speaking of rugs for the dogs - look at what I found the other day...............
|An ORANGE SHAG carpet. Sparky loves it!!!!|
I have to admit - it is very comfy to lay on. M thinks it is hilarious as there is this RANDOM BRIGHT orange rug in our living room!!!! Yes - it does look out of place, but I like the colour and the other rug got tossed a while back. Let's chalk this one up to the eclectic decorating style!!!! Do you want your own??? Comes in lots of wild colours - $50 at Rona. Yes - it will be a nightmare to clean - but I figure we will keep it until it is grungy and then Sparky will be back to sleeping on a quilt!!!!
I have to get ready for the gym. Don't feel like it - I am chilled and I am tired - maybe I am getting sick?????
Have a great day!!!!!!
