For some reason lately I've been hankering to get ahold of a set of those old wash tubs they used with the old wringer washers in days of olde. I've seen them fixed up so cute on people's patios with flowers or perhaps filled with ice and used for a beverage holder when entertaining!
Well.. when Dave and I and the pups ventured to a local Flea Market in his home town of Praire Farm this weekend I almost couldn't believe my eyes! Yup... there they were! With a little wheelin' and dealin' to settle on the $27.00 price they were mine!
When we got them home Dave remarked that they must have used the same paint on the metal stand that our house is painted as it matches perfectly!
I bought some free-range chickens (frozen) and a jug of maple syrup and with that we headed back home!
Feeling creative and happy, my rug hook and frame made an appearance yesterday afternoon as well.
Haven't been hooking much lately and the desire to do a little free-form hooking from a roughly drawn sketch on the linen resulted in a kind of artsy little design. I've been wanting to play with a couple of new wools that arrived here in the studio too.
Another busy week ahead for me! Tomorrow Smokey gets to go get groomed. Max will ride along and usually sits on my lap the whole time hoping he doesn't have to have a bath as well!
He had his appointment about 4 weeks ago so he has a little time to go before his appointment. But I don't think he knows that when we get there... tee hee...!
Hope your summer days have been filled with some nice things
and maybe a little hookin' or stitching too.
Sunflowers and pumpkins are right around the corner!
