I Gave You...my Onlyness... Give Me...Your Tomorrow....

Would you...Love Me...
Anyway...
 
I received a call....yesterday....from a friend, who is helping an Elderly Woman move....
She said there was a Big...Store Cupboard...in the Garage...
and...the price...was very reasonable...
It had been in a Pharmacy, in Cedar Rapids...back...over a hundred years ago...
On it's journey... it was painted green and then...Pink....: )
The Massive Crown...and Work Surface...were refinished...long...ago...
Money is so tight.... this time of year...and especially...before an Early Spring...Show...
I thought to myself..."This Has....to be something...I need....or...I have to Pass"....
I walked...from side to side... closely examining...the Old Darling...
The bottom doors...are not original...{I may...take them off...}
 and...it doesn't have a back...never did...
It is...two pieces.... easy...to haul....It's 8 feet wide...8 feet tall...
The Color....
well...
This time of year... is Good....
I tried...to envision...it...in the Heart...booth...
I need...Shelves....desperately...to hold... the Mountains...of Littles..
but...can I make...this old Gal...Dance...
with...few...or any alterations...
No..Time....
{at Heart of Country...She has to Dance..like a Prima..Ballerina...}
After..careful...thought...
Yes...I can make her....
Dance....
and...She'll... be a Beautiful....Old...Work Horse....
Pretty...in...Pink...
The Deal...was made....
My Latest...Dancing Partner....
Heading to Nashville...
Love..to ya...

{as I paced....back and forth...working...the 'Look'...through my mind...I really wondered...if anyone else...beside...myself...could see the Beauty...in the Old Gal...they way she stands...
in that garage....
Could...anyone...Love Her...
Guess...we'll never know...
I Know... I did...
Me...and the Old Gal...have Much in Common...
A Little Too Much Paint....and...a Dark...Crown... : )
We'll get along...just...fine... }

You did good! I love old pieces like this - great for display. Good luck at Heart! (I will be on a beach in Mexico, but I will think of all the fun you are having.) Maybe next year I will not double schedule. . . :)
