Leftovers Antiques....Oh My...

I was just skipping through Blogland... and checked out Leftovers Blog....{www.leftoversantiques.blogspot.com}{I follow them...} You Must...Must...Must... check it out...and the Amazing article, that was written, about the Store...{www.texasliveblog.com}{when you get to that page... click on 'read more'....}Holy Smolies!
Michael was just up, here in Iowa...Visiting us....we had such a Wonderful time....I have been watching...how his Vignettes, are coming together.... and have been Blown Away... Soulful....So Incredibly...Soulful....
If you can't make it to Texas...to Shop their Over The Top...Store...they are happy to ship... {I need to be better about that...}
The Shop... in my Opinion...is one of the Very Best.... in the Country.... It's a Very Young Store... With a Very Old Soul... I Melt....
Now... go check it out.... and have a Tall Iced Sweet Tea.... Near....You Are Gonna Need It!
WOWZA!

{I just went back, to Leftovers, blog...Michael just put part of his collection of Stapled Plates...from the late 1700's...and early 1800's...He was so kind, and gave one to me, from his collection, when he came up, for a visit, a few weeks ago.... It is one of my Most Favorite Treasures.......{a bit scary, tho...when Liz saw it.... she wanted to make sure...that when I die... it goes to her....oh dear...hope she doesn't get too impatient...} Michael wrote about the process, it took, to repair these plates, back in the day... AMAZING....{check it out!}
I had to put an image of my 'Patched' dinning table.... {only me and Harold could Love}....I bought it from Harold....many years ago, at The What Cheer Flea Market... Harold is gone... but...I see him, often, when I look at the Mid 1800's Strapped...Patched...Walnut...Work Horse....There is just something...about a Well Loved...Lovingly...Repaired...Piece...
Oh yeah....it's the 'Soul' factor...
Love to ya...

{the table had a 2 foot bow, in the middle, when I bought it, from Harold...{I loved it...anyway...} John carefully...over several weeks... worked the bow out... another pair of Loving Hands...included in it's long...long journey...}
