Time for Tuesday's Treasures with my lovely friend MELODY My 'treasure' today has a little story. Yes I can hear you groaning and saying "don't they all". Many years ago we had a little extension put on our humble abode and in anticipation of it being completed I had put on lay-by (if you don't know what that is ask your Mother) a lovely rustic country kitchen dresser. I had paid it off bar about $50 and was due to pick it up after a 2 week vacation at the coast. When we arrived home I was rushed to hospital to have emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. When I regained some sense I reminded Hubby I needed to collect the dresser. He arrived at the little country store to find it totally empty....on further enquiries in the centre it turns out they had packed up in the middle of the night and as they say here in Oz "Shot through" Now this was no tiny store and it was packed to the rafters with furniture. I was devastated when a very ashen Husband told me what had happened. I had scrimped and saved for that cupboard. A week later when I returned home I found that my husband had managed to find one that was similar and arranged to have it delivered and in place when I got home. So I really love my dresser and I have totally ignored any references to it no longer being in 'vogue'
Don't care it will always be in vogue for me. So my treasure is my kitchen dresser.
Why don't you pay a visit to Melody's lovely blog and see what other treasures are being shared.
I recently got such a fright reading on other people's blogs how many days until Christmas. The main reason being I have not finished the long hexagon quilt for my Mum's 80th in December. You may remember some posts about it......in the lovely Japanese fabrics that she just loves. So I found the box, got them out and finished all the cutting out and recommenced stitching them. I now only have 12 more left to make and then I can sew the half hexies down the side and sew the rows together.
A little quote I like to send you on your way.
"A good friend loves you in sunshine and in shadow".
