Boy To The World and a Yard Sale Find

Boy to the world, love boat, him the boy, him the love, whatever I call him, he has stolen my heart.  Isn't it funny how we come to love someone or something.  It is a magical thing that happens.  Now, when this little guy came into our lives, we had 2 other dogs.  Another dog was not on my list of things I was looking for.  But into our life he came, full force, he is not a timid dog.  We watched in amazement how he would plow across the sofa, as he sent pillows flying.  Our 2 other dogs would have never thought of getting on the sofa uninvited and certainly would not have moved a pillow.  He doesn't ask for much only a lap to sit in while I drink my coffee.  I used to try to blog with him in my lap.  Not a good idea, as he would hit some button and send the whole post to never-never land.   I thought you may enjoy meeting Rufus (my boy to the world).

Yard Sale Find

This is a thimble holder I found.  Brought it home, remembered to take pictures, and scrubbed it up. Sprayed a couple of coats of flat black spray paint. Found some images and cards to add to the top. 
The small card on top came from a box of Latin flash cards.  I had a box of German ones as well, but passed them on to a German friend to use with her grandchildren. Here is my completed project.

I have hung it in my workroom and filled it with thimbles, you will have to look for it in my pictures I will post for "Where Bloggers Create".  It is not too late to join us.  I love to look at other workrooms so I can get ideas on storage, organization and just to look at cute stuff.  Hope to see you there!
