Got this great oyster colored buther block last week!! Love it! I am going to work on putting it in a group with the new cupboard!! Moved all the green pieces to the back this morning and I am putting this group up by the counter. What is so nice about this is you can actually sit at it. It is nice table height and it is not horribly heavy like some I have had. Love the shape and the old paint. Getting some great ideas going with this new stuff. Have to start playing with the furniture again.!! Lots of great Christmas left but it is going out the door with everyone decorating now!

New Cupboard

Well I thought I better write something today since I got asked by three people that had  checked out my blog and noticed I had not written for quite a while. Just as I was ready to write google told me I had to pay for an upgrade to post more pictures. Just got that done tonight! Had a busy thanksgiving week and feeling ready to change the whole shop around. Just not sure where to start. Brought this great screen front cupboard in today! I thought it was putty colored but today it looked a little green to me. Not quite sure but love the old latch and cut out bottom.  It is a nice size! Not too large but just right for many areas!! Still trying to figure out what I can do to fix a grouping around it!! I am feeling the need to shake up the shop but I know what a mess I make when I start this and dragging my feet on making such a mess. Lots of great gift ideas still in the shop  so stop in for decorating and gift ideas!

The early potatoe peeling chair looks great in the corner. It came from West Virginia!! I have the next two days off and heading north to do some picking on Sunday!! Shop will be open!!
Brought up this little table to add to the foot of the bed!! Just got in this book press that attatches to the table. Early old wood screws to tighten it. The old sifter is holding some pears! This room turned out great but now I have mounds outside!

New look

Started doing some cleaning today! Got the little room upstairs all redone and cleaned. Loved how it turned out!! Took out the minnow buckets and made it more like a log cabin!! Love how it turned out but I sure made a mess everywhere else!!
