The Loot

Here's my wooly goodness from the wild weekend.  Really, the Dorr Woolen Mill was sensory overload.  The colors, the textures, the massive piles of was so hard to choose.  But I did....

And when I arrived in Maine to meet the girls, they had gifts too.  Cathy gave me this bundle of wool - some of her own dye work and a scented candle

And Donna made us each these sweet beachy coasters 

And this sweet little concrete planter filled with succulents.

And this little planter turned me in to an accidental smuggler.  When I left I put it on the floor of my back seat.  I headed to Vermont for 2 days and completely forgot about it.  When I crossed the border, the guard asked me if I had any plant-life with me and I said No.  I forgot about this in the back seat.  If he had looked in my car I would have pee'ed my pants!!  Ooooops ;)


  1. LOL Love that last part. :) WOW! everything is so the colors. Thanks for showing us the loot.

    Take care, Janet W

  2. Love the wool Kim, beautiful and the little planter is adorable, Blessings Francine.

  3. That was a sweet vacation and all that wool was just the icing on the cake. Nice gifts to remember this wild weekend by.

  4. How did you do going across with your wool? You got so many wonderful colors at dorr. I have to wash the red I bought that you showed me. I am having color block trying to plan that wonderful rug you gave me.

  5. Wonderful wools and some very nice gifts! I would have never taken you for a plant smuggler! LOL! Glad you weren't detained at the border!

  11. It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Dorr is always on my list when I am in the area, wool heaven;)


  12. Hmmm...I thought there was something "shifty" about you! I wonder how many years in the slammer you get for smuggling a "succulent" ! I always get nervous around those gate keepers! Lovely and perfect gifts from those hookers! Enjoy your weekend!

  13. What a wonderful weekend! I loved reading about it on your previous post too.
    So glad you met Cathy! I would love to meet you both. I read her post and saw her pictures. You both are so beautiful.
    Glad you made it across the border without spending a day in the slammer. I can just see your mug shot. haha
    Great memories you three have made. Hopefully this will be the first of many times together.
    Love ya
