What a great week. Summer at its finest. But first, my Tuesdays Treasures...I have more than one today.
This is where I talk at y'all. The "desk" is a solid metal, six-drawer, triple mirror vanity that belonged to my great-grandmother. The side mirrors move, so you can see your reflection from every angle. I'm not fond of that view, so I turned it into my computer desk by adding a board across the top. The mirrors serve as a memory board, I stick cards and letters and mementos on them. The chair, which reclines, belonged to my grandmother - my mom bought it for her and my grandfather when she was in her teens. The right arm, which you can't see, has a little piece that comes up and serves as a small table. Both heirlooms are in serious, dire need of paint. Wait - so is everything else in my house. *sigh*
For more treasures, go see Clare at Clare's Craftroom - she links up every Tuesday to many blogs. Why not blog your own treasures, and join in the fun?
Last week was busy. We made it down to the Dream Cruise on Wednesday, before it actually started - but folks don't pay much attention to the date, they start cruisin' well in advance. The entire week is controlled chaos on America's first highway, with vintage cars parked and rolling all the way through 8 cities on the route.
My favorite car ever - Chevy BelAir. I'll take two. The Thunderbird pics are for my brother, who really really needs to GET HIS RUNNING so we can drive it in the next cruise.
We also made it to Port Huron for a beach day. It was a lovely day, I wish my picture showed the color of the water....
The sand bar goes out really far, and the water is a gorgeous turquoise. This is the same lake we were at the weekend before, only 125 miles south. The drive home wasn't so nice, we drove through a storm that produced 2 tornadoes and didn't even know it - we missed one by minutes.
On the home front, my Sis Boom quilt is now officially a flimsy.
I'm moving furniture around so I can baste it today, and will hopefully start quilting it tomorrow - still haven't decided on a quilt design, but it will be simple, this is a big quilt. By the way, have you SEEN her new fabric line, Queen Street? *SWOON*
Enjoy your week friends, summer won't last much longer, get out there and enjoy it!
