Throwback Thursday

      NOTE: Carrie and Gina, both of you are "no-reply" bloggers so you will not be able to receive replies from me.  I'm not ready to give the secret away quite yet so email me thru the EMAIL ME spot on the right side of the blog post.  Then I will be able to reply.

Reminiscing past rug camps with the classy and talented lady Barb Carroll thought I'd share some photos from when classes were held in her former Ligonier home.  Here she is color planning a rug for Deb.
Over the years I was fortunate to stay in both of the cabins located on the premises.  One year my roomie Deb and I stayed in the 'Guest house'.
It was quite comfortable and decorated with antiques and hooked rugs ~ some antique rugs and some hooked by Barb.  There was a propane fireplace which we enjoyed if there was a chill in the air.  
In the distance on the left wall you can see the antique rug 3 Bears.  I have always loved that design and it remains somewhere on my 'to hook' list but has yet to make it to the top.
This is the bedroom.
There was a well stocked kitchen with coffee, egg cooker, microwave, breakfast foods, eggs, milk, soda and other goodies always stocked in the fridge.
There was a bathroom to the right of the kitchen.  One year when we arrived we noticed a vintage rug had replaced a print on the wall.  Study that rug and see if you see a well hidden image anywhere.
There was also a deck and this was the scene from the deck.  Deb and I hooked on the deck when it was warm enough.  Originally a swimming pool Barb made it into a Koi pond.
After 'hard day at work hooking' in Barb's home, Deb and I would sit and hook in the living room in the Guest House and enjoy a glass of wine...or two.
Perhaps next throwback Thursday I'll show you photos from the Woolley Cottage.



  1. Is there a gnome in the tree? Beautiful place!

  2. Hi Saundra,

  3. I give. I see no hidden image.
    That is one big Koi pond.

  4. Looks like a nice place for a retreat. I see no image either sorry

  5. Hope you had a great Christmas. Looking forward to enjoying your blogs in the next decade.

  6. What a wonderful throwback Thursday. A wonderful place to be on a retreat! Janice

  7. Wow,, what a gorgeous place!
    A real trsat!
    I see something in the sky? But not sure what,,,
    I love the three bears, too!

  8. I see something on both sides of the house, in the sky, but can't quite make out, my first thought was an animal on the left and a cup on the right, but my grandkids say I have a crazy imagination, so there's that. Happy New Year to all.

  9. Please tell us where to find the hidden image! I think the little porch on the left looks like a grumpy face that is facing to the left...striped hat (roof) blue eye (window) and pouty lip. Is that it?

  10. Nice memories. I enjoyed my visit to theWoolley Cottage several years ago. Will never forget Barb’s place.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
