My best buddy!

May 21, 2014
I wanted to share a few pictures I took while visiting my most
talented friend Carole O'Neill, my best buddy for the past 31 years.
I have posted pictures before of her beautiful historic home
 but today I also wanted to share her
folk art paintings, a peek at her murals and a few hooked rugs.
Sorry some of the pictures are not very sharp.

Hanging in her bedroom is this beautiful Lion rug she drew free hand
onto linen, cutting every strip of wool as she hooked away.

Only her second rug hooked thus far!!!

In the hall you can see a her checkerboard painted floor.

This was her first hooked rug.
I gave her the pattern and a box of pre-cut wool and this is what she created!

Murals in her back room.

A few of her paintings.

I told you she was talented!!!
I'm so very blessed to have her in my life!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
