I recently found this vintage wooden pulley as a curb find. I couldn't believe someone would throw this out! I had to stand there for a minute, blinking, because I couldn't believe my eyes!
This is a nautical knot, called a "Monkey's Fist". I've seen these in the new Pottery Barn catalog. Here is a tutorial on how to DIY.
A couple of weeks ago, Susan our Tablescape Thursday hostess at Between Naps On The Porch, blogged about the color of the sky during "The Blue Hour". She Incorporated it into her table scape post. I had never really noticed the Blue Hour before, it's so beautiful! I logged onto the site that she suggested, Bluehoursite.com. It helped me find the best Blue Hour time for my area. The results were fabulous. Thank you, Susan!
