Ohhh! Lunch!!!

That was Tessie, this morning, when I brought this in from the back forty....OK...So it's not forty acres, but I got my first squash of the season... Would you believe that it grew in a pretzel  jar.

Yup. I took possession of a large plastic jar that Walter got at Costco.  It was full of pretzels.  It is now full of dirt and merrily growing squash. 

He is now in the middle of another jar of pretzels and the poor man is eating as fast as he can.  I think that I am onto a new growing system.  These squash are growing even better than the ones in the livestock tank.

While Tessie is dreaming of  squash for lunch, I am getting ready for the witches to invade.  They will be here at one and I still have cooking to do.

I hung this basket on the wall as inspiration for the screens in the North African bedroom...

What if it is Chinese?  I don't care.  It reminds me of the screens. And it's a great place for Tessie to perch and keep out of the way, while I am buzzing around here like a madwoman trying to get ready.

I worked some more on the sketch for the bedroom.  I have decided to make the woodwork layered.  That is, the first section with the window in it will be affixed to the wall.

The scalloped layer will be out as far as I can set it.  I can't enclose the bed, because the outer wall is only a couple of inches deep.  I think that it will work though.  We shall see.

OK.  Now that you have seen this, I have to go make potato salad and cut up stuff for sandwiches... Busy, busy, busy.

See you tomorrow.

Oh that is going to be gorgeous! I love Arabesque/Moorish design. One day I want to make little tables like that, I haven't been able to find any small enough in the tourist shops.

Hang in there Lene. I am going to do a table like that. There will be patterns if I am successful.

esa calabaza tiene muy buena pinta, no me extraña que Tessie no le quite ojo, que tengas una buena reunion

Thank you Casey! I've thought of making the 6 sides all from one cardstock, then folding them into shape to glue underneath the table top - but that's as far as my musings went before another project caught my attention.

Hello Casey,
I think the screen will work beautifully and I love your plans for the bed. I look forward to seeing it come to life.
Now I want squash!
Big hug,
