New Bench

I just finished making a bench for my mudroom.
I bought the legs (which are actually porch railings)
from an antiques mall.
The top is a piece of pine from a lumber mill.
All told it cost me under $30.

The legs are as found. I stained and sealed the top.  : )

Happy Valentine's Day

Nape made these delicious treats from scratch.
Of course his girlfriend got most of them but he did save 
one for each of his parents.  <3 :)

More Antique Finds

I seem to be drawn to vintage shoe cleaning kits.
I love the different brushes and polishes that
you find in these wooden kits.
I also like old wooden shoe forms.
I found this wonderful vintage blue leather suitcase.

There are all kinds of neat things in this kit.
Including old polishes from England, lots of brushes,
and a cool bottle of white shoe polish that originally cost 35 cents!
