CHANGES


AFTER THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS CAME
DOWN I PLAYED A BIT HERE AND THERE
WITH MY ANTIQUES. I WANTED A SIMPLER,
PLAIN LOOK IN SOME AREAS.
YOU CAN CLICK ON PICS TO MAKE THEM BIGGER.


CAT RUG DESIGN BY KELLEY BELFAST.
I THINK IT'S MY VERY FAVORITE RUG!


OLD LANTERNS, HAY RAKE, PANTRY BOXES
AND MORTARS. LITTLE CUPBOARD IS OLD TOO.
MADE FROM A CALUMET SOAP BOX. PART OF
THE LABEL IS STILL ON ONE END.
(no Carole, I'm not willing to part with it! he he)


OLD BROWN TABLE WITH OLD BLACK PANTRY
BOX AND OLD HOG SCRAPER CANDLESTICKS.


THE THREE BEARS ENDED UP IN AN OLD CRADLE
SO I COULD KEEP THEM TOGETHER AND LOW 
ENOUGH YOU COULD SEE THEM.
LOVE THEM TOGETHER!


PUT ONE OF MY BIG OLD MORTARS
ON TOP OF THIS CUPBOARD, ALONG
WITH AN OLD TOTE, YARN WINDER AND
STACK OF PANTRY BOXES.
DOLL WAS MADE BY ME AND PINKEEP
ON HER LAP BY MY FRIEND PAM.
I WILL GIVE YOU A CLOSER LOOK 
AT THE DOLL AND PINKEEP IN A FEW
MORE DAYS.



SINCE I PLACED THE BEAR I HAD HERE
WITH THE OTHER TWO I ADDED MY OLD
BOY DOLL. I LOVED THE COLOR OF THE
BEAR HERE BEST BUT I THINK HE LOOKS OK
TOO!


SAMPLER MADE BY MY FRIEND KATHY FROM
A STACY NASH DESIGN. OLD BROWN TOTE 
WITH SQUARE NAILS AND REPRO RUSH LIGHTS.
I LOVE THE SHAPE OF THE TOTES HANDLE.


AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST MY OTHER 
TWO ANTIQUE BEARS FOUND A HOME IN
OUR BEDROOM ON MY LITTLE ANTIQUE LADDER
BACK CHAIR ON TOP OF AN OLD CHEST.

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE LITTLE TOUR AND
THE CHANGES I'VE MADE.
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI
