Today, I went on an adventure with my husband, in the name of "atmosphere" for my shop! We met and visited with two of the nicest people I've met in a long time...and tromped through soggy wet grass and mud...so I could pick out my hen nesters! If I am going to create pillows out of grain, feed and flour sacks, I thought it would be most appropriate to pay homage to a grain sack's past life! I met a donkey, saw two vintage tractors, which my husband loved, because he works for the company that made them 60-70 years ago and received a few lessons about corn huskers, gardens and how the nesters are used in the chicken houses. I may live in a rural area now, but I grew up in the city and you can tell it!
I took surgical gloves with me as I didn't want to touch them, they were VERY authentic....then I decided to leave them in the car as I am sure it would have given our new friends a hoot and a half! I just washed my hands REALLY well a bit later! I came home with two today...they will need to be thoroughly cleaned, but I can't wait to get them hung up and filled with all kinds of merchandise....French soaps, sea shells, old cookbooks...you name it!
Find Joy in everyday!
|Say hello to my little friend!|
|Oh my, so many to choose from....this is better than buying shoes!|
|What an enchanted place! Isn't the barn inviting? I would have loved picking through it!|
|Here are the two that made it home with me...now time for a bath!|
Blessings to you....live your AUTHENTIC life!
