Meet Fern.  Her name is inspired by the sheet I used which had gold ferns on it.  (I cut into the flat sheet, but saved the fitted sheet for my bed.)  Like appliances from the 70's-Fern is green and gold.  Made from thrifted sheets and shirts.  When I hear the name Fern-I always think of the little girl in Charlotte's Web.

I was lucky enough to come across some more mostly wooden spools of thread at Goodwill for 99 cents.  I might as well face it-I'm addicted to thread.  Mugs and thread.  I can think of worse things to be addicted to.

 Finally-Rocco found a 2x4 the other day.  Here's what I think he was trying to say to me:

Good grief-I tried to play fetch with Rocco with the thing and I could barely toss it-it was so heavy.  Someone was going to hurt themselves, so Hubby took it away.  Rocco's going to have to find another way to satisfy his beaver-like tendencies!

Have a good day.  :)

Fern is beautiful! Love all your wooden spools. You are a good shopper! Poor Rocco, got his 2X4 taken away. He was so happy, but I'm sure he could have done some major damage with it!

I love Fern (makes me think of Wilbur too). Rocco cracks me up - he and Amber would get along really well!
