Look What I Did!

No much going on for us to post but I thought I would post something about Rhett:)

Rhett is my Mom's carousel horse. He lives at the Coolidge Park Carousel in Chattanooga. My Mom carved him several years ago. Last night, on HGTV, on a show called Look What I did! The carousel was featured with a story about the operator Bud Ellis. They interviewed my mom for the show but I guess she didn't make the edit. But, she said she saw Rhett in the background several times and also saw the beginning of a Rhinocerous she is carving for Chattanooga's next carousel.

The show will air again at 1:30 p.m. on Monday Feb. 12 if anyone wants to see it and if you are ever at the Collidge Park Carousel in Chattanooga, you should ride on Rhett:)

here are some pics from Christmas. This was Eli's first time on Rhett.

Niki,
I am very impressed. I have just started in woodworking myself and I don't think that I could ever do anything like that. What a wonderful talent. I think I will just stick with making furniture. Is this your mom or Josh's mom?

Very cool! I wish I had HGTV but we're being cheap with cable. I can't believe that I have friends with such talented families. It drives me crazy!

Eli looks so happy to be on Rhett! Your mom must have been thrilled, too!

So cool! Mindy, my mom and I took Mindy's girls to Coolidge Park during the summer. We rode the carousel, then they played in the water fountains. It was so much fun!! We will have to find Rhett the next time we are there!
