Who Can Get Things Done When There is Shopping to do?
I did stay indoors for the week, but only got my projects half finished. I jumped at the chance to go antiquing this weekend and was so happy I did! The local shops have been adding lots of new prim goods and I made a haul, especially happy to find a big group of wood mashers, each one a bit different, all beautifully carved. I found enough to do several sets in my favorite milk paints. So, we went to Marion, and Park Place had 4 good bread boards, made me so happy. Antiques of Marion produced the best early tin heart cake pan. Off to Amana where I got several of the early good rolling pins at Grapevine, and I splurged on some outstanding prims from Erenbergers, everything I found is just a bit out of the ordinary--photos and listings coming soon! Smokehouse Square and Renates in Amana had some cool odds and ends and I got a new stack of civil war calicos at Heritage Designs. As always, you can find my for sales on Ebay, my user id is 6stringbluesman.
