Boy, what a great vacation, but it is good to be back. I need to sleep in my own bed:) Upon arriving at the beach house, I was very surprised to find this in the dining room.
It was an odd place for such an item, but I really appreciated it.
We drove into a small town, Pacific City, which is just a couple of miles down the beach. It's a great place to find little galleries or shops full of wonderful gifts. I was very excited about the Thrift Shop/Library. Does that tell you something about me? I found this
wonderful dish and carried it all the way home wrapped carefully in a Pacific City newspaper.
You can't keep me away from GW for long. I made a stop today and found some neat items. I don't usually find much there so I was happy with what I came home with. The only thing wrong with this candle stick is that there weren't two of them.
I am going to stain the red one and then sand it. The black one I will paint a mustard color and then sand it.
I think a little sanding is all these babies need.
Somehow, I will turn this into a peg rack. I have wanted one for a long time and this will be perfect when it's done.
Take care and thanks for letting me share my finds. It's fun to share with others who can understand my excitement for such items.
