Found on my Doorstep

I didn’t hear the doorbell ring or the knocker on the front door but look what was left on my  doorstep.

I found a beautiful bouquet from my neighbor’s garden.

A sweet note attached to the glass milk bottle.

Thank you Marion. A lovely way to start this sad day of remembrance and memories.

Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous.

Chair Pad Adhesive Stuck on Wooden Seat

It’s better than it was.

The cushion’s no slip grip rubber came off and was glued to the wooden seat.

This is a chair we got about eight years ago in an antique store in Columbus. I brought it back to Pittsburgh and it’s looking much better now.

Not finished yet. 

Retro Macrame Pot Hanger Materials

This vintage book of directions for making Macrame Plant Hangers or rather Macrame Pot Hangers and this huge twine were in the donations my friend Donna gave to my art teacher friend Bob.

In the seventies, I never used such a thick rope but instead a thinner white cord and some wooden beads.

Macrame belts were holding up lots of bell bottom jeans when I was in college.

Do you or have you ever done macrame?

I used to watch the curtain blow in the wind

I used to watch the curtain blow in the wind. Someone left that top right window open.

For years.

Last week I photographed the window with the moving curtain, wishing I’d had time to video it. Red lights don’t last long enough.

Then last night, the window is gone. Steve was driving. I photographed the missing window with the eerie curtain. And I photographed it again tonight as I was driving over the RD Fleming Bridge again and got a quick shot. Just like that, it’s demolished.
