1. I like fiber festivals! I've been to lots of quilt shows, but never to a fiber festival before, but I had to drop a quilt off in Tulsa and my friend Melody wanted to go to the fiber festival, so we made a day of it. It was mainly targeted at spinners and yarn aficionados. There were so many beautiful beautiful batts and yarns and roving and even some unprocessed wool. I didn't taken any pictures which I can't believe, the rainbows of colors were fantastic. I don't need any yarn, so I promised myself I wouldn't buy any, but I did get a few miscellaneous things. I also learned a ton, the vendors were so helpful at explaining things and demonstrating carding and spinning. Fabulous! The one we went to was Fiber Christmas.
2. I love my pyrex! Lots of people collect vintage pyrex and its very pretty. I'm not much of a collector (apart from art supplies and my mom's pottery) but I have two pyrex pieces that were both hand-me-downs from my mom. I use the white casserole dish fairly often, but I have several other pottery casserole dishes so it's not the most commonly used thing. But that little brown pot is the single most used pot in my kitchen. Since it's microwave safe, I use it for virtually everything I cook in the microwave, from re-heating leftovers to canned soup, to frozen vegetables. It's also one of the few pots that in size/purpose I don't have a duplicate of. I'd be very sad if it ever broke.
3. I love my Bullett dog! I love my other dogs too, but Bullett is the only one who will sit still long enough to take a good picture. I'm so pleased they leave my toads alone! And on that note, we recently acquired (if acquired is the right term for something that has taken up residence in the backyard) another toad. One is stripey and the other slightly plainer. Bentley will still nose at them when he goes outside but after a quick nose-bump he wanders off and leaves them alone.
5. I love this little walkway at work. I go down it each day walking to and from the parking garage and it has such lovely large trees that arc over and create a very cool feeling shady lane. In the fall it's gorgeous, I'll share some more pictures then.
Thanks as always to LeeAnna!
