I found this book last week at a thrift store.
There were 40 beautiful plates of various botanical prints.
I decided I would NOT be framing them myself
no matter how good I thought they'd look in frames...
so I posted it on a local facebook garage sale page and it sold within hours.
I haven't had the heart to part with the oversized book of great paintings (below) yet.
It's FULL of wonderful pictures and great information.
The cedar chest below has been my husband's project over the past week.
He constructed a new lid to replace the original warped one
and completely refinished the rest of the chest for our friends. (It belonged to his
now deceased mother I think they will be pleased!)
I am proud of his skills! Didn't it turn out beautifully?
Now, confession time. I saw the "cubby" sitting beside a trash can
on a country road last week. We scrubbed it up and sawed off a broken divider.
Listed it on the facebook garage sale today, it too sold immediately!
Now I hope to sell this sweet 1960s retro typewriter!
Its lid attaches to form a carrying case.
Our grandchildren have enjoyed typing on it, but it's time for it to find a new home.
I'm pleased with my recent efforts to clear out several thrift store finds
(and make room for NEW ones)!
