On Friday I became an executive. LOL. At an estate sale up on the Main
Line of Philadelphia, I scored a piano bench, and a pretty little lamp.
I did not need a piano bench, reason being no piano( and if I did have
one, I would not know what to do with it)But, I thought what a cute miniature desk for my lap top, while watching TV.
Easy to use and easy to re-use.
The small picture frame is brass and enamel, some of it's pearls and rhinestones are missing. I removed the soldier's picture and underneath was a Victorian Valentine. The feeling of love is still there.
Sat. morning I went back to the estate sale for any left overs. Behind
the hot water heater in the basement I found a great old mirror frame
the bottom piece missing. Fell in love with that and just had to have
So after rewiring the lamp, refinishing the bench, and bringing the mirror frame back to life, I settled into my library seated at the Executive desk.
I forget,hubby took his dad and brothers goose hunting on Sat. morning
and he found this cast iron post in the marsh. Not sure if it is an old
weather vane or a trail marker. He brought it home for me. Now, it has
a winter home on the patio.
Guess I'll keep that man a little bit longer.
