~*Star Rug Company Giveaway Antique Santa Rug*~

Maria, of Star Rug Company, is giving away a beautiful hooked rug of Santa and his reindeer, pictured below.  Go to her blog and follow her instructions to be entered to win this AWESOME rug, hooked by her. She has some other awesome rughooking patterns on her website too. If you are a rughooker, check it out.  I met her in May at the Star of Texas Rug Camp in Tyler, Texas, where I took a class from her. She is a very talented person, full of ideas and new techniques. Drawing will be on December 7,  so don't miss out on this chance for a great hooked rug.
Ok, so I haven't posted since Nov 10. As usual, life gets busy and some things you just have to put aside. It is almost 1am and since I don't have to work tomorrow I decided to stay up late and check my emails, blogs and facebook.

I had a great Thanksgiving. Nick came home from Washington DC and spent Thanksgiving with us. My brother, Mike and family, from Cary, North Carolina were also here. Had Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom's house with lots of family and friends. It was a great day and, of course, we all ate way too much.

I got a stomach flu on Sunday so I have spent a few days on the mend. I did start feeling better on Wednesday.

Thursday,  I met Ginger at the antique mall  in Purcell and we reorganized our booth. Someone bought one of the tables we had stuff on, so we had to get another table and redecorate. Put some Christmas things in and it is looking good.

Jeff, me and Emma went to the Christmas parade in Purcell, Thursday evening. The weather was great...not too cold.  Emma fell asleep on the way to Purcell and actually stayed asleep until after the parade was over. She woke up in time to entertain us at a local Mexican food restaurant where we ate with Ginger, Danny and Jenn. To see pictures go to Ginger's blog, Primitives by the Light of the Moon.   I took pictures, but haven't downloaded them. So you can enjoy the parade thru Ginger.

Even though, I don't have any other pictures to post right now, I always have pictures of Emma. She is 4 1/2 months old now and getting so big. I take care of her during the week, so that is why I don't always get other things done. But I am not complaining. She is such a joy to have around and we have a great time together.

Emma 4 1/2 months old  

Today, I think I might do a little Christmas shopping in the afternoon. I have done some ordering online, but there are a couple of stores I want to visit. Our weather is going to be in the 60's, but Saturday the weatherman is calling for temperatures to drop down in the 20's.  Oh well, this is Oklahoma..the weather changes in the blink of an eye.

So guess I better think about heading to bed soon. No other pictures downloaded, so hopefully next time I will have some.

Have a great weekend!! Spend some time doing what you like to do!!



  1. Happy Thanksgiving!!! It really is a most wonderful time of year..... but it sure is busy, busy, busy! Hope you have a relaxing day off today and are able to get your shopping in! Emma is such a little sweetheart! :-)

  2. Hi I have talked to Ginger a couple of times, I am a fellow Okie. I know you gals went to Linda's "Victorian Rose Trading Post" in Pink the other day.. Linda is my good friend! I am going to see her Saturday. I was wondering about your antique booth - I have never been to Purcell, how far is it from OKC?

  3. Does look like you have been one very busy elf. Taking care of a little one does have a way of filling up our time but like you say (and I know from experience) it is well worth it. Nothing more precious than having grandchildren in you life. Sorry you had the stomach upset ~ not fun! Stay well and enjoy the holidays. Oh yes, I enjoyed your blog post!!!!!

  4. I had a great time last night and Emma is a doll. We will have to have another outing soon!

  5. Pati, Thanks for all your kind words...that Grandbaby is sweet as can be! Maria

  6. Pati, Thanks for all the kinds words. That Baby of yours is darling. Maria
