~*~Saturday SWEETS~*~

Hello Dear Friends! So... maybe these aren't the sugary kind of sweets... but SWEETS they are....

(okay... maybe this one is sweet)

These are pictures that I took today at Judy Cripps' monthly hook in. She so graciously opens her door once a month, serves breakfast, provides dessert at lunch... and lets us all drool over her hooked rugs, wool, and warmly decorated home. There are somewhere between 20 - 30 hookers there each time. Everyone is so friendly & talented.... just makes for an awesome day! My dear sister-in-law, Robin, drove this time. (Thank you Robin!) It is always nice to see beloved buddies... Sher, JoJo, and others! I think we all really enjoyed each and every minute of the day!

The two rugs above are a couple my camera would let me snap (may be time for a new digital camera before too long, but that is a whole other story). Would you believe, these are both on the floor in her entry?! Judy has more rugs throughout her home & doesn't hesitate to let folks walk on them. I guess, after all, that IS what they are for.

To see more of Judy's work & patterns... visit her website HERE. She has an events calendar on her site too... maybe you can meet up with her sometime.

Now for more Saturday SWEETS....

This is my lil' sister, Angie's, house. Angie has her cute LITTLE house all decorated up for her neighborhood's Fall home tour. She calls this her 'Champagne Cottage'. A cottage it is for sure! It is only about 900 square feet (maybe even less)... but just cute as a button!

Here is my niece, Emma's 'princess bed'....

My Mom painted this on the other wall in her room....

There are fresh flowers, carved pumpkins, candles, even a few glasses of bubbly to set the mood. It is a very sweet lil' house.

Okay friends... after a day of fun & SWEETS.... t'is time for me to head off to lounge.

Many warm smiles to you...

  8. Angie's home is darling! I have to go visit with you sometime. : ) The hook in must have been absolutely wonderful. I'd be tip toeing across the gorgeous rugs. Wow! Ok, time to teach me hooking, I want to go to the hook in!!! Just to drool if nothing else. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Oh what heaven to have all that wool to choose from!! hehe!! Her rugs are gorgeous too! And, your sister's cottage is adorable!
    Have a wonderful day!

  10. Betty, what wonderful pictures you got of Judy's rugs, her wool and the cinnamon rolls. I didn't realize you had your camera out, snapping away!

    I always have such a great time at Judy's but wish I could get beyond that need for a nap after those mouth-watering lunches. The food this month was spectacular..... the A-M group did a good job.

    I'm always happy when you, Robin and Sher come and will miss seeing you next month since there won't be a hook-in. Ahhhh, but we can plan for December.....if the roads are good.

  11. Oh, I forgot to mention....your sister's house is darling! And I love her daughter's bedroom. It looks like it was painted by fairies! Beautiful.

  12. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful the rugs, they are beautiful! Your sister's cottage is adorable, it's about the same size as our country cottage. Those cinnamon rolls looks delicious, what fun it must be to get together with your friends.
    blessings, kathy
