TV and Movies Mimic Real Life

TV and Movies Mimic Real Life

I love to see things that interest me in a movie or on TV.  I watched a movie called The Meddler starring Susan Sarandon. In the movie, a man that was interested in her took her to his home to see his chickens.  Susan ate one of the eggs from his chickens and she mentioned that it was much better than the eggs from a restaurant she visited.

Trivial things

I love the look of  the contrast between a bright crisp white thread with a dark or bright thread.  The colored thread is Lizbeth 3 Peacock Blues.  The bright white is not practical to use in a kitchen, such as a pot holder.  One use and the white would have spots on it.  I decided to make a trivet instead, using bright white cotton yarn and a yarn with variations of turquoise and dark blue.  It can be for use under a teapot or on a dinner table under a warm side dish.  My sister is a jewelry maker.  She made me several charms last summer.  I am using one to dangle on this trivet.  It is a teapot with a deep blueish colored bead as the body of the teapot.  I love to crochet, but I like to make small things I can finish in a short time frame.  What about you?

Thank you for viewing!  Dawnie

Watch this to view my grand-daughter and learn about the Wheel of Fortune Ranch

I have probably talked about my grand-baby taking horseback riding lessons.   Now you can view her on the horse in the video below.  The video is the last few minutes of the Wheel of Fortune TV show from the 29th of May.  She is on this video 4 times.  Once when Donna leads the horse with her on it, once with the other kids walking around (she has a pony tail in this picture), once in her pink cowboy hat (her arm was in a purple cast), and once at the far right side of the screen for a quick shot.  Her plaid shirt shows in the shot.

This is a great place for children and adults to visit.  I love the quiet of the country and all of the animals there, especially the chickens.   This video is publicizing the Wheel of Fortune Ranch, which was purchased with the winnings from Donna Penley's time on the show after the tornado went through Haysville, Kansas in 1999 and Donna lost her home.
