Wow, have I been MIA this last month! I haven't actually been missing any action though! Our DD is running track, DS#1 is on a town baseball team, a travel baseball team and an AAU travel basketball team AND DS#2 is on a town baseball team and a travel baseball team. WHEW I've had plenty of action - now I just need to get a laptop with internet access for baseball fields, track stadiums and basketball gyms.
I've also had to prepare The Basket Shop at Historic Sauder Village for opening day this past Tuesday. Managing The Basket Shop is my summer job - I know it's not summer but we've opened for our 35th season already this spring.
On to my post. I'm really thinking that I need another collection! Of course I'm asking all of you to cast your vote if you think I need one too. Shh...don't tell DH! I've found these 2 cute little chairs in my travels, the blue one at a garage sale and the rocking chair at GW. Since I've spent a whopping $1.50 on them together I'm thinking that they need some "friends"
Our master bedroom has 2 long windows along the west wall. DH says they are really basement casement windows and really doesn't like them! He made me a shelf that runs the length of the windows that I've placed baskets on.
I think the chairs look neat placed inbetween the baskets. The colors all work well together: the stained baskets and wood rocking chair and the blue baskets and those with blue accents and the blue chair.
You will notice that I need to paint the shelf and make some sort of curtain for these windows! Maybe a summer project.
So what do you think, don't these little chairs need those "friends"?
Have a great week. ~Ann
P.S. I do want to thank everyone that has ordered baskets from me lately - thank you very much - I'm now caught up on orders.
