Loretta

You may not know that the chief residents of our little household are all on Twitter. I am @franklinhabit. Dolores is @doloresvanh. Harry is @yarnpoetharry.

That was how I found out about our newest resident. She's still here.

I thought that was a picture of someone pouring caramel out of a saucepan. I think it's really neat looking and quite wonderful.

Ell said...

You take Dolores to the movies? Brave man!

I think it must be very fun to live at your house. And you even welcome vegans!

Pretty Knitty said...

Bwahahahaha! I want a Loretta, too!

Emm said...

I don't know about Loretta. She's gonna be hard to knit for.

FiberQat said...

I suspect she and Dolores are going to share lap dancing tips. You're right to be cautious.

I must say that Harry has good taste. But that's not tooo surprising since he is a friend of the Queen. I hope Loretta doesn't find living with Delores too stressful. - Joe-in Wyoming

At first I thought Loretta was one of these, but chocolate:

Hi, Loretta.

C'mon Franklin give the girl a chance, you might find she knits or sews or something? Fine yarn with plenty of drape on fairly large needles I'm guessing judging by her current outfit.

I really miss hearing about Harry and Dolores!
...but I'm not about to go twittering...even though Twitter has a new home on Market Street herre in San Francisco!

Loretta looks like a good listener.

S.Kate said...

With just a wave of her right arm she puts out one serious force field. I can see why Harry was smitten.

Tell Harry that I will give him $8.00 for her. Double his money and Dolores can use the bucks at the movie concession stand.

She looks more like a Nora to me. When I see her I think "Thin Man."

Toni said...

Well of course she's still there - where else would she go?

Creon Styx said...

I thought Loretta was a sculpture of an ear so I have to agree with the poster, Tamar, above me that Loretta looks like a good listener.

Charming roommates, but maybe if you let him get a dog, the dog will take to Loretta and solve the problem.

Upon seeing Loretta, I immediately thought of the the Art Deco statue in the lobby of the Rand Tower in Minneapolis.

Here, see for yourself:

I think Loretta is lovely. Enjoy your addition to the family :)

You might want to check the base and see if that is a Van Briggle (what a family name) piece. If Loretta IS a Van Briggle she is worth a whole lot more than the $4 you paid.

My parents took me to the factory as a kid and the beauty of the pottery has always stuck with me.
