Quilts a Traveling

Pin It

We have been traveling over the past couple of weeks and I have lots of quilts to share. I "ALWAYS" ask before taking pictures, to date I've not had anyone say, "NO" and most say thanks for asking. 


 These 2 quilts are from a Shop in Chillicothe, MO

Notice the red's and how it's the color that has stayed the best over the years 


This is a simple 16 block square, each square was cut 2" x 2"
for a finished block of 6" x 6", quilting had been recently done by machine,
blocks were also machine pieced.

The Hoyt House Amelia Island

Pin It

We had a GREAT trip to Amelia Island, Florida with 22 family members. 

We all stayed at Hoyt House B& B  

their site

I took 606 pictures in 3 days on this trip and I have to share a bit about the weekend. The house was built in 1905 and they have redone a lot, but left all the character in the house, the staff was wonderful and VERY helpful, a 5 star weekend all around !

My love for old was in the right place and Husband's love for new 
bathrooms was there too !

From the Curb Find, to my Dining Room

Pin It

Driving home a few weeks ago and being garbage day, look what I found on the curb! I've been looking for a table for under our breakfast bar to use as a serving table. I knew the moment I saw it, it would work. 


repairing table from a curb find for my dining room

There was/is a huge mark, I think something hot was set on it and a paint spots.



With a bit of finger nail polish remover,
the paint came off. 


But, I didn't want to refinished it completely, it had a fold out top table.




So, I decided to pop off the hinges and just turn the table top over
the inside was perfect, not a mark ! 



Then LOTS of cleaning and re-nailing the metal feet on.


IT'S a WOW 


A real WOW

From Curb to My Dining Room



 I've had the metal work up for MONTH's and DIDN'T have to move any of it.
PERFECT FIND !
