I am in love~

On Saturday I went out to the Gingham Goose for the magazine signing with the girls from A Primitive Place. I got to meet Linda, Audrey and Margo. Of course you all know Linda is a dear friend from RMS days. I do go to the Gingham Goose on a regular basis. I would say don't tell my hubby, but he knows. I have been looking at this wall cabinet for weeks months now. I wasn't sure where to put it. Linda to the rescue. This is the exact spot she suggested.
I love it! I have been tweaking it all morning. Every time I took a picture I thought of something to change.
This little scale was found in a loft in my hubby's family store.
I love the detail of this piece.

Same thing....this bottle was found in the old building and it is from a local bottling company that is long gone. My Uncles used to run the local gas station, the only one in town....They used to have an old soda machine and I would get my cold drinks from it. I was so impressed with it because my uncle never let me spend my nickel, I could get it for free, just open the door and take it out.


So what do you think? Do you like it too?  I am really in love......and my sweet hubby got to work on hanging it when I came home with it. No easy task because I want to be able to put heavy stuff and not worry. Just as he finished our son and grand daughter came in for dinner. Perfect ending to a perfect day!

OH Donna, it is gooooo gorgeous! Good thing you bought it before I got to it though! What fun you will have decorting it and tweaking it for the seasons. Love the history of some of those pieces too. How cool is that!

Love your baskets - I didn't know you made them! I made one once - that is hard work!!

I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous weather today!! HUGS!!

Linda,
It was years ago....when I had more time and it is hard work. I would rather buy and antique one these days. I am going to Jackies with Barb in the morning so I'll let you know what goodies I find.
Hugs,
Donna
