Hi , I have to apologize for not blogging for quite sometime ! Im so sorry ! I have had some crazy happenings going on.. first our trip to Pa to visit relatives and do the huge Penns Cave Flea Market ..turned into Paul having a stay at the Lewistown Hospital for a few days ..we did do the Flea Market and visited with loved ones ..this took place the day we were supposed to come home ...he was doing better ..but just last week he had another episode with his heart again..and ended up in ICU this time ..his heart flipped back to normal rhythm again and so hes home now ..but its kind of scary now ..we never know when this will happen ? Please keep my husband in your prayers !
Well anyways ...while I was visiting Pa of course I went to my favorite place The Olde Hatchery..a place thats filled with prim decor ..I got a farmhouse table built to my measurements ...fits perfect in my kitchen ...finally ..finally ..a table that fits into my tiny kitchen !! At the Flea Market ,I picked up a few really cool cottage items ..a precious chenille bedspread ..I'm keeping this one ..sorry !! some lacey linens & doilies..some white hobnail glass pieces and lamps..another crate ...some more lamp shades ..some frames .. we had a great time ..while it lasted !!
Since then ...I have finished and sold my first birdhouse (pictured above)...dug up my old ski boot, from when I was a kid , and turned it into a center piece , dug through my parents attic ,found some really cool vintage things ..silver Christmas Tree ,a color wheel , knee hugger elf, and my Moms cardboard Chimney fire place its so cool ..I will post the pics when Im all done putting up the decorations in my basement ! Also I have fixed up this lampshade to a really cute Shabby Chic lampshade ...can you believe I found this shade in the garbage this past summer ?? in perfect condition yet ? I also just picked up this awesome vintage leather seat desk chair also works perfect I so wanted a chair like this for my desk area ..I was sitting in a hard windsor chair before ..I love it swivels and leans back and forth ..and it can be raised or lowered .. I had stopped at the Salvation Army's as is Garage ..(it's not the reg store )... and before I walked in ...this chair ..and a vintage all wood sled was over at another area outside I walked up to ask about it ..and the man said .."just take it ..put it in your car we dont have to deal with it" ? sure will & Thank you !! lol... Yeah !!! I was estatic !! It was just what I was looking for !
Basement update : Im about halfway is gruling ....first I have to wash the paneling with bleach ..then dry it for a day then prime it with Kilz ..then paint two coats ..ugh ..its very hard to do with RA it hurts my hands sooo much just to grasp that roller handle I just take my time and do a little each least I got my desk area all done and all organized is exciting to see the transformation ..Im so used to Paul doing all this for me ..but I made him promise ..that this is my project !! I will also update pics of basement ..sometime after Christmas ..and I will....uh oh I just realised ..I still have to finish my Christmas shopping !!! Ahhhhhh ! gotta go .... Have a VERY VERY MERRY MERRY "CHRIST"MAS !!!
Love& peace ,
