'Old pillows, can you tell me where you have been?'
Wow! I had a great day yesterday at the TS!!!! Check out my most thrilling find (and sorry for the photo of the messy garage)..... It is a full size pencil post bed! This is a huge project for me to refinish, but I think it will look great stressed finished in black. And then I need to make the colonial curtains and all for it, give me until the Fall. 'How Much' you ask? Don't hate me and never visited my blog again, but I only paid $12.50 for it! My heart was palpitating in the store hoping it was all there, and it was. I don't think I slept that night for the thrill of it all!!!!
And I found this cute basket for $1
and this Pig Platter for .75 cents. It has a raised embossed pig on it and I think it will be perfect for serving Easter Ham..... But what to do with this? Not the shade, I do have a home for that and I didn't get that at the TS, it just happened to be in the photo, but the fluted pan. Any ideas?
I have been busy quilting, 'tis the time of year for weddings, graduations, and baby showers. It is a good thing I don't have or watch a lot of TV.
My thought question this week, not that I have one each post, but my thought question is 'Where do you sit to ponder the things in life?' I have a beautiful set of adirondack chairs on my front porch, and I sit there to relax, ponder, stitch, read, write in my gratitude journal, visit, listen to the birds, and in general, live. I shall post a photo next post or two, when it is nice outside to take a photo. It is getting to be that time of year when I can spend hours out there. I have had such a wonderful time visiting TS though this past week, that I have a feeling I am going to be spending time there this summer 'sanding' things. I also found couple of nice pairs of candlesticks that need to be sanded and painted. I am saving those for before and after photos. I LOVE it when you fellow bloggers show before and after photos side by side. Gives me so many ideas!!! So anyway, do you have a 'favorite spot'? We all have them I am afraid. Inside? Outside? Favorite refreshment while you are relaxing there? Is it the same place year 'round, or does it depend on the weather? Does someone else know about it and try to get there first, before you?
Gotta dash. The family is starting to arrive home from the days activities. I have asked so many questions this blog post, does anyone have any ideas for dinner?
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
