Was contemplating what to post since my Snowman isn't done, haven't gone back to my Star Geometric from rug camp and binding of the Horses and Hearts rug isn't finished yet. So decided to show a picture of this room where I finally hung a few more smalls.
Top left you will notice the recently hooked Donkey at the top and previous small horse pieces below. Next right is the wonderful Kinderhook Basket which was color planned with Barb Carroll.
To the right top of that is the small version of Magdalena's Goat with the antique adaptation Spike below. I will talk about other side of the room in a second.
The two green birdhouses sitting on the dough-box came from Cape May and the little mat was hooked by Tonya Robey. The hooked heart pillow and heart footstool were also purchased on eBay from Tonya.
That primitive Annie doll stuffed with rags is one I made and wearing a pair of my son's shoes from his youth. Annie is sitting in an antique doll highchair. The antique school desk I've had as long as the dough-box and it moved a few times between Delaware, Maryland, to California and back again.
Now for the shock to me. When I downloaded the photos I saw that orb on the chair which my boy Ben would curl up in. Immediately upon seeing it I burst into tears.
Here is one of many old photos of Ben, he is laying in that chair. He sure didn't look comfortable to me but he would come to the room and lay in the chair often when I was on the computer.
Yes, that orb brought me to tears but believe it is an indication his spirit is with me.
