I'll be first to admit, gracefulness is NOT my strongsuit....So Tuesday, amidst hauling all my treasures (in the last post) from the truck into the sunroom (so I could take a pic & figure out where things will be dispursed) I fell in our walkway. I was carrying the old wooden drink crate with things in it & next thing I know...CRASH!! I fell so hard & so fast, I didn't know what happened until I was on the ground. I fell face first, landing on a landscape timber & a few bricks, with the drink crate sorda into my stomach...YES! It hurt....When D came home he wanted to take me to the Dr., but I refused....By Wednesday I was hurting pretty good so my mom drug me to an urgent care...3 x-rays later, I have fractured ribs. Akkk!! Well, let's just say the pain is continuing to progess instead of lessen, so by the end of each workday, I've been too sore to do much other than lay back with an ice pack....
Soooo, as I'm laying here on the couch, I'm admiring a few of my favorite things, and since I can't do much else, I thought I'd share pics of them with you!
The first pic is our fireplace & mantle...My daddy laid all the rock! The mantle will soon be replaced with a beam from the old mill (read about it here if you missed out). David has the afixiation with old lanterns ~ I am honestly running out of room to put them but he keeps buyin' them! LoL The white star is made by the Amish up in Pa from salavaged barn tin! We sell them here in the shop!
Next, is a new grouping I just finished a few weeks ago....well, I'm still tweaking bits on the inside, but you get the gist...The top part is an old hanging cupboard I bought in Pa during Christmas & it's sitting on an old table that USED to be the base of an old stepback...David sat the cupboard down there while we were trying to figure out how high to hang the cupboard & I liked it so we left it! A few of my favorite things are tucked about ~ the large basket sitting on top I got from my dear friend Judy during our last trip up to Pa...And, lastly for tonite, is my old make-do screen safe...I found this in an antique shop a few years ago & fell in love! I put it in layaway not having a clue where I could fit it, but knowing I had to have it! When it came home it had to sit in our unfinished sunroom until I could figure out a place to put it...It just moved in during Christmas (after almost 2 years on our unfinished sunroom!). I love it!! It's made from an old shipping crate...the things they MADE-DO with soo many years ago!! Also tucked in is probably my hugest addiction ~ OLDE quilts!!... A few yellowware bowls sit in the top ~ I love yellowware, but these are the only 2 pieces I've been able to snag cheap enough to come home with me..and a stack of old seamless sacks ~ Bemis, Fulton, any Seamless advertising sack...WHY do I collect them? I have NO clue! I just love them! :)
Well, that's it for tonite!! Maybe one nite again soon I'll take you on more of a tour of our cabin!
