During the holiday break, I went with my two friends, Karen and Chris, to the Kirkland Tea Room for lunch and a little bit of shopping! If you have not been there, you must go, they have the nicest stuff in a quaint house! The lunch was good too! The tables are dressed with vintage tablecloths and old vintage dishes! The atmosphere is worth the trip. It is on 306 in Lake County. The garden room where you can shop has the most unique items from tea pots to lawn animals. Check out the cute cottage house I just had to have!
Went back to Tannery Hill this morning and found some more cool stuff! These old wire lamp protectors I thought were neat so I put a plant in them and love it! I found this sort of crock type pot with wooden handle, it was really neat but I have no idea what it was used for? I just liked it because it was old so I brought it home and cleaned it up and put my succulents in it so now it is a really cool planter!

I have started collected old wisk brooms, my friend Pat, got me hooked! I was finding them for her at estate and garage sales then I started finding some really cool ones and decided to keep them for myself, sorry Pat. I just love sticking them in old wooden boxes! Recently, one of my favorite customers(that comes to my sales) brought me a couple unique wisk brooms, I can not thank her enough, I just love them!
I am always looking for something new to do during the winter months here in Ohio. I found this chair at the side of the curb (lucky me) and decided to bring it home. I put it on the porch but it needed a seat so I thought to myself, why not buy some material and try making my own! Now, remember this is my first attempt at doing this so be kind! It only took me about 2 hours to do, the hardest part was cutting the material and making sure it fit across the chair. My next venture would be to find a small chair and see what I can do with that! I don't think it came out to bad for my first time, what do you think?
