Going Out Today


I am going to my friend’s house today. Louise has invited Carole and I for a visit and some lunch and I am so looking forward to getting out. Louise is the gal that makes the wonderful hooked rugs that are in my American Artisan Store She lives in a wonderful old house in PA. This is how it looks now, click and how it looked back in the 1800′s.


Speaking of houses, my mother’s house has still not sold! It’s been on the market since June and we have not had one offer! Many have looked at it and liked it, but the problem is they have to sell their house first. Remember how hard Bill and I worked on it. We were so happy with the way it turned out. In normal circumstances I’m sure the house would have sold long ago. It’s a darling house. My mother is now out of money. I have not paid the facility that cares for her for a couple of months. I try not to worry, but I fear that her house will become another expense for me. I hope that doesn’t happen. I am trying to stay hopeful that this Spring it will sell. All I can do is wait.
Happy day

    Hi Carole,
    It has been quite a while since I have dropped in to leave a comment. I hope that you had a wonderful time today visiting Louise. I am so thrilled that you shared photos of her home. I think of Louise every single day, as I purchased her wonderful hooked cat rug from you last fall in your American Artisan Store. Now I know where this great piece of folk art was created. Louise is a very talented gal, and it is with honor that I display her creation in our primitive home. Carole, I hope you are feeling much better since your fall on the ice. I have been dealing with a lupus flare since mid-January, but am feeling more like myself each day. Take care my friend, and tell us all about your visit to Louise’s home, can’t wait!! Hugs, Kathy

    Hi Kathy. It was really so nice to hear from you. You must visit more often. I am so glad you are still enjoying that little hooked rug.

    Hi Kathy, I’m so happy to hear that you are enjoying your little rug. These past few years we have taken in several homeless cats that are very dear to my heart.
    I so enjoy hooking them in my rugs and will be offering more of my furry friends soon.
    Thank you for your sweet comment.

    Hi Carole ~ I hope you had a lovely day out. That is indeed a wonderful house.
    Isn’t it just the pits waiting for a house to sell ~ especially when so much else is attached to it? I certainly hope and pray the right buyer comes along soon.
    Have a great weekend! Joy
    Oh, one more thing ~ I loved the remark you made on my blog the other day. If I don’t get my coffee machine back soon, I’m taking you up on your offer! lol

    Hi Carole!
    I am sorry that your mums house hasnt sold yet~ its a treasure for sure~ just bad timing :( I will be sending good energy your way for it to sell~ stay positive!
    You must tell Louise that I am in love with her house~ soooo beautiful. Her living room is a carbon copy of my dream home that exists only in my mind, but I visit each night when I sleep. How lucky she is~ how lucky you ALL are to love over there amongst so much history.
