Friday is my busiest day and today was no exception, but I have for weeks, wanted to participate and share in Kelli's challenge at There is no place like Home
....Show & Tell Friday!
As the Rabbit said in Alice in Wonderland...."Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it is getting!"
It's 10:30, ... thankfully I still have time...
These are two of my favorite treasures!
No one really appreciates the architectural piece as much as I do...LOL!
You can't handle it without creating dust from crumbling plaster...
About 10 years ago, the college I graduated from was renovating a stately old mansion, that was probably bequeathed to them. It had fallen in a sad state of disrepair. All of the columns had to be recast and the old pieces, this being one of them, were left by the road for trash pick-up! A friend of mine rescued a piece for the both of us!
I just feel like we salvaged a piece of history!
The hat box beside it was given to me by my Dad....the tightest man with a dollar you will ever meet! "smiles" Remembering that I used to collect old vintage hats years ago, he bought it for me! So I was VERY touched! I just added the flowers for interest...I like to "think outside of the box," when decorating! LOL!
I already have several things in mind to post next week!
....So, I hope you will come again! ~Rhonda
Sorry that I don't have the link to Kelli's House ~ There is no place like Home, directly from this post! I'm new at blogging and have not mastered even the simple stuff yet! :) But if you go over to my favorite blogs...you can link to her site from there!
