This is my excuse from now on. This stuff follows me home. How could I turn it away or leave it outside? I wouldn't refuse a cute puppy, so how can I refuse a wonderful, large ironstone bowl with patina AND a crack? It would be heartless, so I brought it all home. I made it home with a rusty birdcage that now holds a plant (hope it lives!) And that wonderful bowl and the plate that is so, so perfect with the others on my plate rack in the kitchen. That perfect oval frame that used to hold bubble glass. Some folding cabinet frames (they are in the corner, my photo didn't turn out... it has been so rainy.) And do you see those two little blocks on the plate... do you need a closer look? okay!
How cute are my little silhouette printer blocks? A little girl and a little boy! I got them at Scarlett's. I forgot to mention that we went there on the way home from Nolensville. If you are ever in the area, you should check it out. And, please tell her that we sent you! Mr. Hughes does design work here and there for her, and on one trip back from her store, he brought me a little boy block. So, I decided that I must see if there was a little girl there. And, there was! Of course I couldn't leave the second little boy there, I mean c'mon!! And, here comes my major find. Something I have been searching for....(no, not that medical cabinet.......)
It is a 10 gallon crown crock!!!! Aren't you excited? Isn't it wonderful? I'll admit, it is much larger than what I originally had in mind, but the price was right! Here's a close up....
Now, the only problem is deciding if it stays in the entry where it will hold umbrellas. Or, will I beg Mr. Hughes to lug it upstairs to the Studio where it will hold rolls of fabric....hmmmm....tough choice. Well, I am off. I hope to post a project involving those folding cabinet frames really soon!
