Oops almost for got this great load I got this morning! Huge iron banded mortar! Love the stack of old dry bowls and the old niddy noddy! All things wood!! Love Love love!!
I added the chair and primitive girl! Just got in this tall stepladder in old blue paint! Hung the huge flag on it! This flag was used in WW11 to put on submarines as they surfaced so they knew which country they came from!Geraniums are always a finishing touch! We will not be open Memorial Day! If you ever traveled far and we missed you my cell number is on the door and we will make every effort to be there!
Well our new hours worked great this week! 11-4 during the week gives me much more time to get things done around the shop and I got to go out to gather things twice this week! The wonderful gray log box is great! Square nailed with raised sides! I put a doughboard across it to make it a table! The great piece on the back wall I love love love! It is a wool bundler!! It folds in to make a box and then they strung string through it to tie it up! Can be folded up and used as a shelf but I love all the forged iron on it so used it as a wall piece!! The wooden house is a square nailed beekeepers house! Small openings at the bottom for the bees to enter! All of these items came from a trip out east!! Started redoing the basement this week also! All the green pieces went down and did up a cute group down there. Hopefully I can get some more done down there this coming week!
