What a beautiful day we had today in northern Ohio. Mid 60's. Sunny. Got some outside stuff done. Raked the yard. That darn maple tree of mine still hasn't lost all its leaves. Tomorrow there is snow in the forecast. Welcome to Ohio.
You may recall this little Pineberry Lane sampler I stitched a few months ago for a Christmas gift. I finally got the edges stitched, though a little wonky.
So yesterday I was off playing ~ aka hitting a few antique shops. At the shop in Lodi I found this little box. Not antique but vintage and a great price so I brought it home.
Well, it looks like the sampler was made for the box. I will not attach the sampler but just set it on top. My son also pointed out that it would fit on the inside of the lid should the recipient want to have the box open.
At the Seville Antique Mall (be still my heart), I found this sweet little shoo fly missing its rockers. I'm not sure what/if I will set anything on the seat, but I just love it. Gabriella of Tweedthistle Primitives (you can find her on Facebook) always has wonderful antiques ~ and great prices.
I'm still the crazy decorating fool but there is a light at the end of the tunnel (and it's not a freight train). I still have the main living room tree to decorate and of course lots of odds and ends. At the end of the week I will steal some fresh greens from my brother to put outside. So far this is my most stress free Christmas ever. Life is good :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
