Thank you for visiting my blog site. I own The Rug Hooking Store at Black Horse Antiques in Valley Nebraska. I have had the antique store for the last 31 years and the rug hooking portion of the store for the last 12 years. I specialize in hand-dyed wool and all supplies needed for rug hooking. There are over 750 patterns available in the store and online. I particularly love color planning rugs and will be happy to help you select wools for your latest project. Visit my store at www.janicelee.biz
As you can see, my painting is done, the fire marshal has been here and the addition is FULL for the CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE tomorrow. We will be hooking from 10-5 and are all welcome to join us. Carl will make us lunch and a good time will be had by all. Make a purchase tomorrow and put your name in the drawing for a $50 gift certificate!
There is so much new in the store it is hard to describe it all. There is a beautiful 8ft solid walnut harvest table, a 1860 museum quality mammy bench, complete with original black paint and gold stenciling. There are wonderful store boxes with great labels for biscuits, spices etc. There is an adorable possum belly kitchen cabinet and a doll size kitchen table and chest of drawers. All so cute!
Over 100 patterns have been marked down 20%, an unheard of event here at the store, but all part of our grand opening for the addition. If you get to come visit the store, PLEASE admire my newly painted floor thru out the store. It took me all week, moving a section of furniture, painting the floor, moving it back and on to another section. It looks pretty good if I do say so myself. I don't intend to repaint it in my lifetime, so please enjoy and admire it NOW!
Oooooh, and my blog would not be complete without mention of the little poodle puppster that is now 3 weeks old. I get to pick him up in just 4 more weeks and I can't wait. The 5 pups in the litter have opened their eyes and are exploring their world. They are all adorable, but I think mine might be just the most handsome and intelligent of them all. I won't know his name for sure, until I see him. But, because he is probably going to be a blue/black or silver Standard Poodle, I am thinking of Blue or Remington Blue. If I name him Remington I could call him Remi. Carl suggested Charlie, Donna Hrkman likes Smokey. I am open to suggestions if any of you are inspired with a name for this little adorableness.
