ironing board that belonged to his mother.
I had it for years and loved it so!
He took it home a few years before he passed away to refinish it for me
and it's still sitting at my mom's.
(but that's a whole other story...
not a bad one...just a quirky one!)
I FOUND A DUPLICATE OF IT!
I'M SOOOO HAPPY!
Not only is it a stepstool, but it's also a sitting stool
and an ironing board!
I have plans (just like the birdcage....it's coming...don't worry!)
You'll just have to wait and see!
This is definitely going to entail my sewing machine...eek!
While we were in the antique market, "Crossroads" in Brantford,
I also came across something else totally coincidental
to my life!
In 1975...yup, that's right (I was 13!)....my next door neighbour, Mrs. Harris,
gave me these two lovely pictures which I just recently repainted the frames of
and hung on the wall near my vanity table in our bedroom.
I carried these pictures around for the last 36 years!
Today, I found this following picture with the exact same
picture frames as my originals!
How great is that!?
and thank god I used 3M tape to hang those other two because I'm
going to have to rearrange the pictures above the shelf!
I also hit paydirt when I found 11 doilies for $7.50...half price!
Doilies are indispensable when you are trying to
make your bedroom into a French Country look!
I spent the whole day running errands, taking my mom to the doctors,
all those things that you absolutely must do!
And, at the end, on our way home, I said to Dan...
"Let's go to Crossroads, cuz I'm feeling like there's something there waiting for me".
And....I was RIGHT!!!
