Random 5 Friday - Mill Mountain Star

(click on photo to enlarge)

The Mill Mountain Star was constructed in 1949 to kick off that year's Christmas shopping season. After construction of the star, Roanoke was nicknamed the "Star City of the South". Read more HERE

Now for some randoms!

1) I won a pretty orange knitted hat from Buttons over at Buttons Thoughts. If you've never visited Buttons go on over and say hi. Also you can see pictures of her cute cows modeling the hats she makes. Here's a photo of my Ozzy modeling it for us:

  6. I'm not too sure what your dog is thinking, but it's something along these lines: "Sheesh, the things you do for the ones you love!" Got to say, he's a star, though!

  17. Tanya,

    I am glad to hear you are getting a taste of spring. I am excited for warmer temps.

    I am a fan of Miss Buttons blog too. I love her stories.

    Fun find on the old bed spring uses. I bookmarked that site. Thanks!

    I read She's Come Undone last week.

  18. Ozzy looks like he has been caught doing something wrong and has been sent to the corner. Go give him a hug and tell him everything is OK.

  23. Ozzy is totally rocking that hat; what a handsome dog. I loved the other rescue dog/ cat photos. It's great that they're getting this publicity. Fingers crossed that they all find good homes. And I almost wish that I had an old bed to chop up for its bedsprings. I loved the stools made from lorry springs. Have a lovely weekend, Bonny @ just saying ...
