Thursday Tidbits

Happy Thursday!  Hoping that you are enjoying the hot summer days of July wherever you might be.

Here are a few tidbits for this Thursday......
Love that Martha Stewart is blogging about needlepoint.  See her post here.  Great introduction for someone new to needlepoint.

There are several Christmas in July promotions going on right now.  At all in stock holiday canvases are 25 percent off.  Here are a few of my favorites....

Po's Point is offering a similar deal and there are lots of equestrian ones to pick from here.  Some of my favorites...

Love this cute rug that would look divine in the right spot - a small bath that needs a "wow" or powder room.

And the Blue Grass Stakes is on at Keeneland this Saturday.  I was supposed to be there in person back in April (sigh) but it should be a very good race with Derby points on the line.  Here is a link to a very good "cheat sheet" for Saturday's race.  My money is on Art Collector but there is a very very good filly in the race, Swiss Skydiver.  She's chestnut too........... do not count her out in any way!

Last year's winner, Vekoma, set the world on fire this past week winning the Met Mile at Belmont. He's four for four this year.  

And my favorite chestnut race horse mare, Monomoy Girl, makes her 2020 stakes debut this Saturday at Churchill Downs, her second start in about 18 months due to injury and colic.  Hoping she is back on her winning form. Cannot wait to see her run again.  She looks just like my Sega.  


  1. Monomoy Girl's (successful) stakes debut this year was in the Ruffian Stakes at Belmont Park yesterday (July 11), not at Churchill Downs.

    1. Leslie, yes you are correct. She raced at Belmont. Wasn't it great to see her run again?
