Another project done....

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Everybear, hope you are having a wonderful week.

Here is another of Mom's punch needle project (a Doreen Frost pattern).  Mom is thinking of mounting it on an old piece of barn wood. 
This cute guy is from my dear friend, Carol, an applique
 1894 Cottonwood House
kit.  Also, They are having a fun Halloween Spooky week with lots of wonderful surprises, recipes and giveaways.
My guy still needs his wool felt background and then mounted on old barn wood.

 We have a wonderful hardware store in Asheville, it's more a woodworking place, but they sell all kinds of neat tools.  The place is rustic, worn hardwood flooring, tons of pieces of old wood, a few completed pieces, i.e. a table, dining table,I'll do a post with some pictures the next time we are there.

A Halloween Finish

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Well, I'm all ready and waiting!
Here is Mom's latest finish, she belongs to

Notforgotten Farm's Primitive Punch Needle Club 
and this was our first project.  Isn't it cute?
It says "Merrie October 31st"
Mom mounted it on a pumpkin shaped hornbook which she painted and then stained.

See you next week.

It's Friday
Book of John

Several weeks ago our Pastor was ending his sermon and challenged us, anyone who wanted a challenge.  I sat motionless not knowing what to expect.
He said "read a book in the Bible" (I immediately thought JOHN), "and read it 50 times, don't think you must read it in record time, read it and see where it takes you."
Well, I am on a wonderful journey, I am now into my 8th reading, and my relationship with God is growing stronger with each reading.  I am not rushing but I am seeing that I want to read more quickly, moving on to the next chapter.  I am remembering passages, I am getting to know John on a personal level, and I am loving every minute of it.
I find that instead of spending a few moments online, or doing something that interests me, I FIRST want to get some reading done.  It's taking me to my Bible on a very regular basis and I feel wonderful.

Blessings, have a wonderful weekend.

Biltmore Estate

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi, M&D were at Biltmore Estate last week and they went to Cedric's Tavern for a late lunch.

These are the beautiful sculptures of Cornelia and Cedric outside the restaurant.  Cornelia was the only child born to George and Edith Vanderbilt.  The family dog, Cedric (which the tavern is named after), was Mr. Vanderbilt's pride and joy.
Upon entering the restaurant there is a beautiful showcase which displays Cedric's collar.  The tag says "Cedric" Vanderbilt.  It is 33 inches around, Cedric was a Saint Bernard, weighing 230 pounds, now that was quite a family pet.
The walls are adorned with wonderful pictures of the family and Cedric, friends with Cedric, and young Cornelia with her puppy.
We have yearly passes for the estate, so we are there many times during the year and usually do the house tour at Christmas.  Downstairs are the kitchens, pantries, staff dining rooms, etc.  And there, like another household, is a gate which has printed on it - "Cedric's Gate", and yes, it closes off the kitchens.

Wishing you a very nice weekend.

It's offical

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Guys, big news, Mom is writing a book of short stories from our adventures.
"Three Bears & A Vulture"

She has the introduction done, and the first story.  It's not about us but about her and our brother
Rizzo.  But then it's "all about us" after that story.
(Flora, Rizzo, and LuLu)

I'll see you next Friday.

Here is our September Ornament from
Miss Staci Ann just keeps creating and surprising us with bee-u-tee-ful ornaments each month.

Oh boy, here we go again, it's ornament making time.  So, LuLu & Flora have been super sweet these last few days (they don't fool me, they know exactly what they are doing), and Mom is going to cave in and let them help with the September ornie.

See you next Friday.
