The Rest Of The Weekend Pick And A Little Peek In The Other Art Room
I went out again on Sunday and think I managed to satisfy that junk-Jones I had going on! I visited a second sale in the most amazing turn of the century house. That is one of the things I love about estate sales, sometimes you get a chance to see inside those wonderful old houses - up close and personal! I had to keep circling and asking myself if I had been in that room already.
I also went back to the book hoarder house. Even on the third day you still had to turn sideways between the stacks and not for lack of customers. I picked up this one because who could resist that cover?? The book was published in 1854 so I will have to actually read it and see what is inside. The sub-title is "and what I saw there". The era would make me think it is the evils of drink but the font is a little too light-hearted for that. I will report back.
Doesn't this sheer bow look like an angel? I see a project here. Those magazines were from the book hoarder, as well. I picked these two out of the stacks for the ads. I could have thumbed all day.
When I got home I walked out to The Husband's art room (the shop) to let him know I was home. He was turning an exotic hardwood called Padouk.
The sawdust was the most amazing orange color, way more vibrant than photos in the poorly lit shop can convey. When the sawdust is freshly turned it is a bright, vibrant orange. Beautiful wood! He is experimenting with making corkscrews and bottle openers so keep your eye out for them to appear in his Etsy shop.
