Van is Full

Oh My this weekend kept me hopping!!! Lots of people out and about. Many pieces of furniture went to new homes!!! So this morning I made a quick run and picked up this van load. Neat little squared nailed table with stretcher bottom!! Underneath it is this amazing drysink with high back. The apple green table and hanging green cupboard in previous photo went to new homes so this dry sink will fit perfectly in their place!! Love the display space on top. The shop is totally destroyed until I can get it reworked. Lots of things on the floor until I get some big things to hold them. People still seemed to find lots yesterday in all the rubble. Never ending. Oh my what fun!!!

Bed in Group!!

Chippy iron bed added to this corner. Put the settle next to it!! Love this ratty old quilt across the back!! Good to get it cleaned and cobwebs gone!! So hard to keep up sometimes with all of it. Takes me a week to finish the basement!! One little group done today!!

New Sign!!

Well getting this sign home yesterday was not a fun trip!! Drove about 90 miles with it hangin out the back end of the truck and the wind was blowing 60 miles an hour!! Went to an auction to look at furniture but was sadly disappointed. So I headed for two signs that were there. Took the trailer for furniture and thought surely both signs would fit in it. Wrong!! This one was nine feet and trailer is 8!! Thank God we make it home withought this blowing away or ripping through the trailer. I am cleaning and reworking the basebent and redid this area around this sign today. Lots of greens!!

Born in the Barn Spring Event!!!

It was getting dark when I took this pic! Redid the window with the new black pieces!! Nice tall cupboard with two rows of tiny drawers!! Came out of an old hardware store!!  Filled the unique trencher with wool apples!! It is set for the summer holidays! Seems like the time is just flying this year. Winter was very mild and have just been running all year. Monday I have to finish taxes and then much stress will be lifted. Still lots to set in the shop but it will have to wait.
