Dumpster diving, horses & valentine

I just had to do it! Dumpster dive I mean. Wasn't my fault! There I was on a walk with Katie and on top of a trash cart was a basket. How could I resist? Well, I couldn't! LOL! Just ask Jack and he will tell you! It needed a little repair but nothing major. I am going to do the edges of it in a yarn kinda like a binding just to perk it up. It is just right for little katie's coat, sweater, toys and leash. She is great at taking the toys out! Wonder if I could teach her to put them up? Yeah, right!

Oh and the horses! This is so funny! First of all there are now 11 instead of 9 of them. We have a mom and her two youngsters. So I had an appointment thursday. It was a sunny day but chilly. We pass the pasture where they live on our way home and of course they live behind us too. Anyway, I saw one standing in the sun all maxed out and napping. So I look for the rest of them. Well, there they are sprawled out on their sides sound asleep! That was just so funny and made me think of sunbathers on a beach--a cold beach here though! Wish I had taken a picture!
Now for a little fun. I got this from zztop's blog.

Hi Michelle!
I also suffer from these symptoms, as I have social phobia; so I know how much of a struggle it can be. Yet, I feel perfectly happy at home with my stitching; so I understand how you feel. Thanks for sharing, because I feel you can understand me too and this is kind of scarce...
Hence the results of your sweetheart test that I absolutely share as well! lol...
Take care, my friend, and please, give Katie a hug for me.

Hi Michelle,

What a nice find! I once got a nice toaster the same way!

It's great that Katie-Bug now has a special place for all her belonings.

They say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure"! The basket is cute! Amazing what people throw out! My MIL broke her rotary cup dumpster diving. Every time we would ask her about it she would get a little more upset, till we just didn't dare bring it up! lol

Hugs to you! ♥

Nice basket. I wouldn't have been able to pass it up either. Too funny about the horses.
