Yesterday was a rainy day here and we expect more of the same today. I expect we will be able to get out for a walk today but I'm perfectly happy to read and sew all day too. Today's postcard is actually from last week.
The day that we went to Moxie Falls near Moscow, Maine we cam upon this scene heading north on 201 toward Jackman and came upon this sight!
Bird houses of all shapes and sizes on a random retaining wall. It was awesome!
I waited to share it until I had internet access and could research it. You can read all about it here. I absolutely love that it isn't' organized in any way and no one is trying to take it down.
According to the article, the smart people put theirs near the top so that they don't get damaged by the snow plows. Isn't that the coolest thing?
Yesterday I was itching to start a new crochet project. I must be a grown up now because I actually swatched it to decide on a hook size. The bottom rows are a K hook and the top rows are done with an L. I decided on the K.
I'm 8 rows in and have been testing 2 brands of hooks. The lime green is Clover Armour and the ivory one is from Webs. I like both but I give an edge to the Clover. It's a tad less grabby.

I love Clover crochet hooks. They’re so easy on my hand. I’ve replaced all my old hooks with Clover

That birdhouse wall is delightful! It seems to be a pure art installation, as the article said that birds don't use them. This is one of those quirky things that is so wonderful to come across.

I have seen that birdhouse wall featured on an episode of Maine Cabin Masters. Ashley painted a birdhouse and her and one of the guys hung a birdhouse on that wall. They had brought a ladder so it was one near the top.

I love the birdhouse wall - and the story that goes with it.

Love the birdhouses! How cool it is that no one is taking them down. My vacation to Maine was pre-digital cameras and cell phones that fit in your pocket. I still managed to take loads of pictures - turned in at least two rolls every day for developing. (Oh the good ol' days - lol). I may be treating myself to a perusal through my old photos very soon. Thanks for sharing highlights of your vacation.
