Hunkering Down At Home

WOO HOO 
for the
WEEKEND!

It is supposed to be a cold one on tap. 
So after I do my grocery shopping,
I am staying home
and hunkering down for the weekend.

What will be your plans?


There was an antique rug that I saw
which was completely hooked in off white
with all of the shapes outlined in red.
I really liked it, 
so I created this hooked house
with that rugs color as my inspiration.


Today I hope to finish hooking 
the second house I drew out.


I hung this one on top of my wreath.
It has a rusty wire loop for hanging.
 Not sure if I like it hung at an angle...


or straight like it is in this pic.
Which do you prefer?


I kept my white lights up
for January.


I enjoy the twinkle in this cold
dreary month.


This wall is in our living room.
Our front door is to the left
of the dry sink with my shoe tree display
from my last post. 

Apparently I took this pic at an angle too.

Well off to shop I go.

Hunkering Down Blessings To All!
Janice

    1. Artsy is a fun word! Maybe that was why I put it an an angle at first..the artist in me. I actually made hearts today instead of hooking...They were calling me. LOL Janice

    1. It seems everyone likes it straight. Hope your granddaughters birthday was a blast! Cookies and chili sound good. Bob wanted pork chops and twice baked potato...so that's what I am making. Janice

  8. Ooooo,,, I left a comment, but not sure if you have an approval setting in place or if it just disappeared. (See? I have been gone too long and fear I may have forgetten things LOL). Anyways...I know it’s a voice from the past and hope I didn’t spook you, but I miss blogging and my blog pals a lot...so am dipping my toes back in the proverbial waters. I love your little hooked house...and am with the “straight” majority LOL... Stay comfy and cozy....we had freezing drizzle all day..not the best day to be out and about, but needed to go to see my mom. Tomorrow will be my hunker down day I hope....I need to start taking Christmas down (yup...still the procrastinator...some things never change LOL). Happy 2019 to you and Bob...Hope all is well! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  9. Oh what a treat to hear from an old friend! Glad you got your toes wet and came back to blogging. I miss you. freezing rain...UGH. Shhhh, I still have my big Christmas tree up. Plan on taking that one down next week, so I am a fellow procrastinator. Janice

  10. Love your little hooked house, Janice!! I think it's so cool that people are hooking smaller, more user friendly things than big rugs! I have a box full of rolled up rugs that I bring out from time to time...but these little mats are perfect! Your primitive home is beautiful...stay warm...at least we didn't get all the snow!! Tell Bob "Hi" !!
