I've mentioned my dear friend Wink many times before. She is my antiquing partner in crime. I caught the antique bug from her many decades ago. We live several hours apart, but met for the weekend in the Lancaster, Ohio area. We stayed at the Dum-Ford House Bed and Breakfast in Amanda, Ohio and spent Friday evening and Saturday antiquing.
In years past, the Christmas antique open houses were Friday evening and Saturday. We did not realize that it had been changed to Friday during the day, but luckily we were able to make quick stops at two of the shops in the early evening hours. The following pictures were taken at Miller House Antiques in Carroll, Ohio. Isn't their log cabin home wonderful? We did not get to go inside this year, but the inside is even better than the outside.

Decorating with cotton seemed to be very popular this year.
I just love the stack of sandstone grinding wheels.
This was in a planter-type box.

I do have a few purchases to share with you, hopefully in my next post. Blogger is still giving me fits trying to upload pictures. It took me several hours to load these.
Now to the title of my post . . . I need more storage for my wool. I want open shelving so I can see what I have. I found a wonderful old pie safe that is missing its doors. The spacing of the shelves is perfect. I drive a Chevy Tracker and usually what I want to haul fits in it. Unfortunately, the cupboard was about 6 inches too tall to fit (or my little SUV was six inches too short!). Now I am trying to decide if it is really worth the added cost of borrowing my sweetie's Tahoe and driving two and a half hours to get it. Logic says no, but when it comes to wanting this antique, my mind is screaming YES! You know, it is said the best time to buy an antique is when you see it because tomorrow it may be gone.
