~ Cool Flax Comb ~

Happy New Year everybody! I hope this new year and this new decade is off to a good start for all.

I wanted to share with you this very unique and awesome item that I purchased a few weeks ago. It's a flax comb made out of hardwood handmade by Art Haber of Old Colony Primitives. What nice folks they are to deal with too!

You can get it made with or without the heart but I adore hearts! I was saving it to place until after I got all of Christmas put away and as soon as I knew where to hang it I just had to show you!

Yep, on the blanket crane! I was wondering where to put it, then the blanket crane dawned on me, and I thought to myself, DUH! this is the perfect place for it, why wasn't this the first place that came to mind? LOL, oh well....I like the way it looks there. It's such a cool thing this flax comb, dontcha think?

Well it certainly is winter here in Virginia but winter in Virginia is a walk in the park compared to just a few hours north of here. It's definately cold enough to snow but the air is bone dry and it's windy today which is one thing I really hate, the wind! All our snow is gone except for the big piles that are left in the parking lots so I am ready for more!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a great week!

That is a neat comb Janet! I do like the heart too! It looks great on your crane. Not snowing here today and probably not as warm as you are, but we did get probably a foot over the past few days. We have serious winter here though. Going out to roll up some lights and the cords. Have a good day!

Yup, it is cold, windy and snowy here. Winter in NE for sure! (but it beats the heat of the summer!!)

Stay warm!!

Wow! I have to get one of those! You sure found the perfect spot for yours. By the way I woke up at 11:47 New Years Eve just in time to watch the ball drop in Times Square and I was thinking of you and Linda! Hugs
