Great Find!?

Found at the Goodwill for $5.  It had an antique shop tag on it for $65, said it was a yarn/wool winder.  I looked on Ebay, didn't find one similar to this.  Anyone know anything about these? Maybe Chris could use one if she is still hooking rugs?
It has nice paint, hand-painted flower design on each side.  Not as primitive as others on Ebay, but maybe Victorian?
Would also like to know how it works, never have seen someone use one.  Sure won't be me!  I'm a mover and sitting and knitting would drive me crazy!

Jethro From Alabama

Jethro is a lucky boy.  Met two ladies from Pell City, Alabama, Shelter at the Georgia line and transported him back to Atlanta to be taken in by Mike.
After a good grooming by Amy, he will be beautiful (and smell a lot better,too!)
He had no problem saying good by to the shelter van and walking right up the ramp to my car wagging his tail the whole way!
This is the beginning of his new life.  He may be headed to New York where the weather is cooler, and with all that fur, I'm sure that will make him a happy boy!

My First Morning Home

This morning on my morning walk with the pack, a young deer came dashing out of the woods.  By the way she was acting, I knew a baby had to be somewhere close, so after putting the dogs in the house, I started my search.
I stood back and watched the mother come back to an area where the baby must be.  It was the complete opposite side of the woods where I thought, she must have been trying to throw the dogs off when she ran out earlier.  Took me about an hour, then finally I saw her curled up and asleep on the side of the stream.  She never moved, just looked at me while I snapped photo after photo.  I believe she's a newborn, and hopefully tonight will start to walk and go somewhere safer with her mother.  I spent two hours fencing the area off so that my dogs would not be able to get to her.
Later in the afternoon I saw the mother come and feed her.  I didn't want to get too close, so you can only see her eyes and the white on her chest.
Here is her white tail as she was leaving.
An added bonus to all that work, I noticed the blackberries were starting to ripen in the six days that I've been gone.  Yogurt and berries for lunch and checking on the fawn every hour!
