I thought I would share a little more info I've gleaned in my studying. Did you know cliches are to be avoided at all costs...not that I would ever be guilty of beating that dead horse! Putting it into a nutshell, it's acceptable to use one as a title just not within the body. The trick is to be original in thought. Needless to say, I think I got this one licked with one hand tied behind my back! After all, this isn't rocket science, so I'll stop making a mountain out of a molehill on this subject and get down to the real nitty gritty!Talk about gritty...between taxes, Winnie & Tulula's, life and getting ready for the trip to the Mother Ship, the house has gone to wrack and ruin! I'm talking about getting down and dirty here. Take a gander at this table we bought! Ain't she a beaut? I know, I know...she's rough as a cob and may not be everybody's cup of tea, but some like carrots...others like cabbage! Cat Daddy and I happen to love cabbage. When we get through with her, she will be smooth as silk and pretty as a picture...I promise. I love the apron on her. She has a solid bottom under that top and I think we may try and hinge the top...won't that just make you flip your lid?
She's just one of the finds we will be taking this spring and at the end of the day, it's not always about what you bring to the table, but it sure does help if the table is this good!
Before I forget, I need to dish some dirt about a contest going on in the Golden State and by that I mean California. Sue's store, Country Roads Antiques has been nominated for Best Antique Shop in Orange County. Haven't you always dreamed of being tall, blond, and tan? Here's your chance to pretend you are all those things. It's really as easy as falling off a log! Just go here and cast your vote 'cause after all...actions speak louder than words.
Let's just cut to the chase and tell it like it is. Country Roads is a wonderful collection of vendors who are more like family than business associates. Sue is one of my favorite people ever and I would do just about anything to help her and I know she would be first in line to help me if I needed it. (A friend in need is a friend indeed!) Her store is a success story of what you get when you put in long hours, work hard and treat your customers with care and respect. She lives the Golden Rule...not by words...but with actions. So, please go over and cast your vote. By doing so, you are casting a vote for every antique shop owner and the blood, sweat and tears that goes into making it successful and isn't that what so many of us dream of being...a success?
After spending my entire Saturday at W&T's I am tired to the bone so I think I'll close now and hit the hay. Remember...VOTE...pretty please?
