greetings, hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!
unfortunately michigan state lost to notre dame, but at least the
i stopped over at a local consignment shop that specializes in furniture and antiques. you see i have been searching for a few years for a secretary that reminded my of my grandparents. while i found it yesterday! the secretary is made here in american by the jasper cabinet company out of jasper, indiana. it's beautiful, below are photos from inside the store:
can't wait for the secretary to go from above to this:
comparing both pieces is it me or do the two look almost identical? i wonder if there are? what do you think? hmmmmm, i wonder?!??!!?
UPDATE: okay, my creative juices started flowing and i gathered the lamp, the mini staffordshire figurine dogs i bought in new orleans, one of my favorite oil paintings i have yet to get framed [however, now i won't have to re frame the painting], a pair of pink & green graphic design photo albums, a few old books and an empire pewter sugar and creamer set. i can see it now! of course there are other things to be added, but this is to give you an idea! so exciting, can't wait to see it all come together!
i also made a stop over to williams-sonoma and bought yet another piece of all-clad. as if my collection wasn't large enough already, lol! anyway, i bought the Tri-Ply Stainless-Steel Sauté Simmer, 4-Qt. . the pan normally retails for $245.00, on sale for only $99.00 --- SOLD!
oh well, this afternoon i think i am going to go out and buy some ribbon and make one of these wreaths for thanksgiving.
