We found a little gem up in Ohio this weekend... GREEN! My favorite color in the world!
Wonderfully aged green paint covers the surface of this child-sized kitchen cupboard. It only stands about 4 foot tall.
We brought it up the stairs ,
And set it on the landing... a pretty small space measuring about 8 ft. x12 ft. Hmmm, methinks... what shall I do with this little piece of history in this very little space?
I could fill it with antique dolls, tea sets or old teddy bears,
but since this area is filled with...
and spinning wheels and yarn winders and a loom.
I have another idea.
In keeping with the theme of this tiny "room", I am shuffling through tangles of embroidery threads, and yarns and old sewing implements,
with a little help from my friends...
I am sure we can pull all this together.
My gosh, I have had these old sampler kits for nearly 20 years!
They would be so beautiful in antique frames hanging on a wall.. at least that was the original plan. Gee, I wonder if they will ever be sewn.
I will put that on my to do list.
I got close to completing this one... I will leave it out as a reminder to "finish what you start" !!!!!
How relaxing it is,sifting through all these long forgotten items. Old buttons, rag-balls, darners ( do people darn socks anymore?) , silken ribbons and gossamer threads, are now all tidied up,
and placed neatly in baskets and boxes,drawers,
and sitting in the little green cupboard.
It really is amazing what one can do with an afternoon and a very compact space.
I wish you all a lovely Thanksgiving, eat well, enjoy your loved ones and let's take joy and be thankful for all the little things we have.
