Victoria Day Weekend

The second funeral during the covid period...  I dislike most funerals but this one was a tad more celebratory of a life well lived. The tough part of both is that people can’t comfort each other physically AND many cannot attend because of spread. Neither funeral was from the virus however.

I’m close to done with my antique replica:

I’m not overjoyed with it, but I like the hidden birds.

My next rug is drawn and ready; it will be a tavern sign for my bro-in-law’s billiards room. 
Their house is huge and his man room is sacred space for him.
My son celebrates  his “champagne birthday” this year:
31 in the 31st.
We never called it that, have you heard of it?
I do recall the old custom for Sweet 16 females: a pink corsage with a netting holding sugar lumps attached. 
Anyone remember  that one?

Well, I’m well and truly addicted to online auctions and marketplace now. I couldn’t resist this sweet old wood container...

And joy of joys! The woods are full of trillium.
Well, mosquitos and trillium, but dog and I were forced to walk faster, which is a positive.

We searched for mayflowers but I saw none at all. A bit strange, but it’s a weird sort of year.

It’s Victoria Day weekend here in Canada.
Waiting for vacation plans to be okayed...
An extra long one with a slow rv drive down the coast to my family in NC. 
Seeing our kids takes priority and we’re still trying to work that out.
And there’s a big box from The Wool Studio waiting at my folks’ house. Bonus!

May your weekend be blessed with absorbing all God’s goodness around you: whether you’re in a bad place or a good one.

Your 1879 antique adaptation is coming along great. Think I told you before that I'd considered hooking that one too but still haven't. Am sure looking forward to what will be on your frame next.
WHOO HOO, Rebecca wool treat!!!!! Safe travels. said...

Yes, I recall. I was in love with it until I put my hook to it! And a box of new wools is like a Cmas gift, no doubt!

Hope you have an enjoyable Victoria Day weekend! Love your rug and cannot wait to see what you hook for the billiard room. Janice

I hope your holiday travel plans come to fruition and wish you safe travels. You really are bringing the "old" to life in your project. I think, for some reason, capturing that old feel is a gift endowed more graciously on some than on others...and you, obviously, have been well-endowed. That photo of the sun on the water is incredible. ~Robin~

I love your rug you have been busy sorry you have had funerals to attend. So they will let you across the border with permission? I hope they open the border soon. We are pretty much full open we had our first family gathering yesterday we are all mostly vaccinated and had it out side.

Thanks Janice. Your own blog inspires my prim side ! said...

I do love old things—to the point that I have a business for seniors 🤣
That “pond” is in the woods behind our neighborhood. I rarely see anyone on the paths, sometimes four wheelers or snowmobiles. It’s like my private woods. said...

Cathy, we are awaiting vacation permission from hubby’s boss. As US citizens it won’t be a problem to cross the border. However when we return to Canada we will have to isolate two weeks — despite the fact that we will have both vaccines.
