OLD BLACK TOOL BOX


MY FRIEND KATHY AND I WENT BUMMING YESTERDAY AND I FOUND THIS OLD TOOL BOX. IT HAS GREEN UNDERNEATH AND THEN A LAYER OF BLACK PAINT. I LOVE BLACK PAINTED THINGS. IT IS NARROW AND FIT ON THIS BENCH BESIDE OUR BED LIKE IT WAS MADE FOR IT. I WILL USE THE BOX FOR STORAGE OF SOMETHING. THEN I FOUND THE BROWN REPRODUCTION SOCKS AND YOU KNOW WITH MY LOVE OF BROWN I HAD TO BUY THOSE TOO! LORI

BROWN HEART MAT


I HAD A COUPLE OF REQUESTS TO SEE THE RUG IN THE PICTURE OF THE BLACK CUBBIE WITH THE SHOES SO I SNAPPED A FULL VIEW OF THE RUG. I DREW IT ON LINEN FREE HAND A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND HOOKED IT WITH DIFFERENT SHADES OF BROWNS. YUP, BROWN AGAIN!! LORI

LITTLE OLD SHOES



I HAVE A LOVE FOR OLD CHILD SIZE THINGS. I HAVE BECOME A COLLECTOR OF LITTLE OLD CHILD SIZE SHOES. IVE HAD TWO PAIR FOR YEARS AND THEY HAVE BEEN DISPLAYED IN DIFFERENT WAYS AROUND OUR HOME. A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO I PURCHASED THIS OLD BLACK APPOTHECARY TYPE CUPBOARD. IT HAS BEEN IN DIFFERENT PLACES IN OUR HOME TOO. EVENTUALLY IT FOUND IT'S WAY INTO OUR GUEST BEDROOM AND THE LITTLE SHOES FOUND THEIR WAY INTO THE OPEN CUBBIES. IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS IVE PURCHASED TWO MORE PAIR AND I HAVE TWO CUBBIES LEFT TO FILL. I'M NOT IN A HURRY THO. AFTER ALL, THE HUNT IS HALF THE FUN!! LORI

FOR THE LOVE OF BROWN


I admit it, I love brown! I love it with red. I love it with blue. I love it by itself. I thought I'd share a small quilt top I pieced the other day all in different brown fabrics. Some are homespun, some are prints. I used several of my favorites. I'll be hand quilting this little quilt and offering it on my picturetrail in a couple of weeks.
