this is just so Wonder full.
yesterday, the mystery loom. and then
Gracie of Gracie and the Ontario Meadow
hesitantly offered this. it looks very
much like a storage rack for folding tables
that she has in her wood workroom.
ok. and i just happen to have just such
a wooden folding table out in the shed.
dusted off and set in....mystery solved.

and it is almost more wonder full to me
that this is how it all came out. how
amazing that Gracie in Ontario Canada
reads this blog and comments and i
go outside in New Mexico and alas...!

so, now, what was this storage rack
can somehow in the days to come, become
a little loom frame.

i think it's the work of Grackles.

i should say too, that the weaver
that left it for me said also
that she had seen it in someone's
roadside trash and brought it home.
it's again, validation for that
theory that what we love, we see.
She loves looms, so it looked
like a loom.
this all just makes me smile
and all soft toward life.

So delightful and awesome that you have the table to rest upon it too. Thank you Grace, it is a great relief to know I didn't offend. And that this little thing, left in the trash, has sparked so much fun. Have a lovely lovely day!

your comment about them...for
some reason, it's important to me.

do...my Russian Olive throbs with
them, it is quite amazing.

Grace - this is all so funny and makes me feel so much lighter. You always make me smile.

Susan...good then, you smiling.

of the Room and each time i go
past it, i smile even more.
and you will never guess who
visited the Russian Olive tree
this morning???

but that means they are on the
move and more will come soon.
