Have lots of things to tell you about today. First off, we have been going through some difficult times up here. On a particularly bleak day, I opened up on the private Make Mine Pink forums that I had been really down. Well, aside from the usual support (which is the norm at Make Mine Pink) within the week, some beautiful angels began showing up in my mailbox. They have been coming a few a day every since. The return addresses are all from Angel of Hope and all over the country. One was so funny, from Angel in Training! To whoever the angel is who started this thank you, you have made a big difference in our lives. There is comfort to be had knowing complete strangers will take a bit of time from their own busy lives to send a prayer and a bit of hope. To all of you Angels of Hope, thank you. I sincerely hope some of you see this post and pass it on to all your sister angels.
On a less serious note, I have had some incredible luck with the 'Curbside Boutique', or my son has anyway. I have gotten 2 tables that are really cute. One is a little beat and needs some major TLC and a face lift. The other may be a good table. The wood looks like tiger maple and I think it might be fairly old. My antique friends (hmm, that didn't come out right, I, of course, mean those who deal in antiques) might be able to tell me a bit about it. I have several photos of that one to let you check out.This, of course, is the one in need of a major make over. but I think it may be cute when done. Next comes the one that seriously intrigues me. My son found this for me on a roadside up in Vermont. Makes me want to move up there just for trash day!
table top tilted up-see the catch that holds it. So, what do you think? I'm thinking that little pedestal might be for a candle stick to sit upon. Good Vermont trash?
