With stormy weather everywhere, we find ourselves in the house much too much! But since we cannot enjoy as much of the out of doors right now, we can enjoy the inside in the meantime. I took a walk around the house this morning checking out my favorite things...This is a sketch of my Mom that my son, age 15 at the time, (1980) drew. We were vacationing in Maine and she was reading in a lawn chair. I think he captured her in caricature, perfectly!
This is an antique school desk like the one I had in grade school in the 40's. I am not sure how hold this one is but my hubby bought it for me on a visit to Bennington, Vt. It has another part that pulls up to hold a book so I know it is older than mine was in school. The Goose Feathers are sitting in vintage ink bottles and they are pens that I made from Canadian goose feathers. I have this by the front door.
Craft Site And the little quilted heart runner trimmed in eyelet is one I made just a couple of years ago.
Here is my small collection of depression glass. I am partial to green pieces and also have a small juice glass. I purchased all the pieces separately and the genuine vintage depression green ware is hard to find and expensive.
This is a photo of my craft Hammer that Hubby put my name in! I think it is so neat! And just the right size for hammering little nails.
This is a Rooster plaque with one of my favorite sayings on it. It is on the side of a kitchen cupboard. My oldest daughter gave it to me for a gift one time. She knows I love Roosters and Barns as well as the saying.
And last but not least, this is one of several Quilting blocks made by my hubby in wood. I love the little details he painted on it. I am so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful partner for my life! For more of Hubby's creations go to our Kerrie's Krafts 3 site.
