Saturday I killed two birds with one stone, so to speak. There was an antique/craft show that I wanted to attend and it was just about halfway to the antique shop where I had found the pie safe. Well, since I was already going to be halfway there, it just made sense to continue south and get the pie safe. Right?
Since the pie safe would not fit in my little SUV and I thought I was not going to drive back to get it, I did not look it over that carefully. It is in a little rougher shape than I thought it was, but I love it. After a good cleaning, it is perfect to hold my wool. Geez, I didn't realize how much wool I had hiding in the closet. Probably about 2/3 of this has not yet been washed (and I still have more that is not yet out. Can you say addiction?)
Here's a picture without a flash . . .
. . . and with a flash.
I really need to sort through the wool and arrange it a little better by color. Here is my other wool cupboard displaying the hobby horse I got the previous weekend.
I really did not buy much at the Gathered Treasures show. There were lots of "prim" goodies, but none came home with me. I hadn't bought a cookie cutter in years and have bought two in as many weekends. Also a couple little tart tins and some scrabble tiles. I just think they are fun.
Some vintage Christmas that I thought was a real bargain ~ $6 for everything.
A punched tin chandelier that will go in the hooking room once I switch the hooking room with the guest room (but first I need to paint so that won't happen for a while).
A big THANK YOU to all my enabling friends for encouraging me to get the pie safe. You are THE BEST!!!
Pug hugs :)
