I thought I'd do a little blog catch up on some stuff that happened before I got sick. The day before the flu took over I got a call from a friend. Her neighbor was having a big yard sale the next day as she had to move quickly. She was selling almost everything. But lucky me got invited to go over the night before the sale and get first pick.
The first thing that caught my eye was an old tin. As long as I can remember my grandmother had an old tin she kept buttons in. I always played with it as a child so when I moved I brought it with me. Silly to keep an old beat up tin but it reminded me of her. Well, this lady had an identical tin, a bit larger but in perfect condition. I had to have it.
I also grabbed a pottery wine chiller and a lacy runner. And a set of 3 blue Pyrex mixing bowls.
And one day while digging through the basement at Aunties house I found this old metal stand. I thought it would be cute cleaned up as a coffee station. It was originally white but quite filthy and rusty. I got some red rust paint and spruced it up.
Taadahh! Looks kind of cute, don't ya think?
I'm working on a small hooked piece that was a Facebook challenge from Lori Brechlin. Stay tuned for my version of Santa Claws :)
Tomorrow is turkey day! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving
