Hit The....Road... : )

 
I hit the road... Full Throttle.... Wide Open!
Had a Most Wonderful Day!
The Sun...was Shining...
Roads...were clear...
Gathering...was Plentiful....
It was good...to see... old...friends...
and...Friendly...Faces... : )
It was a Long...Day...
The Ford...and I...covered...many...many...miles....
The Road...is such...wonderful therapy...
it truly is...
I found some...DARLING...Treasures...for the
Garden Party...
and...that always gets my Creative...Juices...Flowing....
Had a Long...visit with Pegadoo...and...Jan...
while...cruising the Highway....
It was good...to catch up...with those....Dear Souls...
I'm Jumping Down...the Rabbit Hole....tomorrow...
Full Throttle...
Wide...Open!
Hope...You...had a Most...Lovely Day...
with...The Sun...on your Face...
Love...to ya...

A Sweet Friend...at one of my stops... told me of...an Estate Sale....
Oh Boy!
Found some...great Treasures...
and...
Friendly...Faces...

I found The Massive Frame...and the Church Podium...at The Estate Sale...
{Both...have been on my 'Wish List'...for Dear Friends...I was Sooooo Happy to find them... for my Pals...: ) }
Thanks...Soooo...Much to these Sweet Girls...for helping Load...
What Dolls!
This...was my Favorite Find...of the day... : )
This is a horrible... image...
{it has a Most...adorable...trim moulding...on top...that isn't seen...in this image....}
I had just unloaded it... in the MUD....
and...it was quite dark...by the time I rolled in....
But...This...Little...Old Cupboard...
is...Sweet...as Pie....
It's 100% Original....
Dry...Dry...Dry...
White Paint...
The wear...is...exactly...what I always look for.... in a piece...from the 1880's...
It's...so...Primitively....Constructed...
The Craftsman...attempted...to create..a Formal...Cupboard...
but...with his limited...knowledge...this...was the best...he could do...
and...for Someone...very special...
{I'll show you...later...all of the Special...little details...he added... that...if...he were making it...simply...to hold things...he never would have done...: )
This...Little Cupboard...
is...Truly...a Gem...: )
{LOVE it's Turned...little Legs!!! and...They are Solid as a Rock! I had to walk it...on those legs...to get it inside...by myself... They are Tuff!}
The previous owner said she bought it...in Hazel, Kentucky....
It made my Heart...Swell... when I saw it...
I'll try and get better images...before the Garden Party...
It will be for sale... but...I think...it may be The Server... for Food...
It's...quite...the Little...Darling...
it...truly...is...

Oh how fun! I'm jealous...I won't be able to hit the road until April. Glad you found some great treasures...but it seems you always do. I absolutely love the cabinet!!! As well as the frame, too bad it's already spoken for.
