I made a quick trip this afternoon to my favorite antique shop. It was one of those rare days when I found MANY things that I wanted to buy. In fact there were so many treasures that I spent WAY more time there than I had intended, trying to decide which items to purchase. Complicating the decision making process was the pitiable state of my checkbook!
There was a great old basket (one of my biggest weaknesses!) There was also a to-die-for hand carved wooden bowl with tin repairs which I could just picture on my kitchen counter filled with apples...sigh. A child's rocking chair painted white caught my eye, as well...my grandchildren would look so cute sitting in it! Then there was the black sofa table with carved legs...I REALLY wanted to snatch it up and take it home.
The grand total for all of my objects of desire would have been around $300, so I came back down to earth and faced the bitter reality...I couldn't buy it all...sniff...sniff.
I did, however, LOVE the few things that I felt within my price range today.
Also, I have been working on a new rug, and here is a small preview:
Have a great week!
