the new fabulous window display- aldo's bottles (and that is not an intentional pun- just a lucky one). mostly dug locally these antique bottles are soooo lovely.
my little brothers and his sweet wife's new headboard- he built the frame/ bed, i carved the tree and she stained. what a team! it really is beautiful and i will post more pictures of the finished project.
i have to apologize. the first picture of this trunk is cloudy and does not do it justice. but i got a new camera- like an actual camera not an iphone- and i'm still learning how to use it. actually, it's more passive than that. i'm waiting for someone to show me the setting that takes magically good pictures. so far, no one's come in off the street to show me how to take a good picture in 5 minutes- because that's all the time i have to spare.
you'll just have to come in person to see how yummy this turquoise trunk is. and i promise to spend a little QT with my camera after thanksgiving.
who knows, maybe someone will show me that magical setting later today!
this old cabinet looked pretty rough, and i started sanding the outside to prep for painting. but this great green started peeking through, and the metal...... so of course i changed my mind and just put a protective clear coat on.
but i did put some lovely paper and a fresh coat of white enamel on the inside.
