Oh, I have to show you what I found at a garage sale!
That’s right, Pancakes, it’s a PICKLE antique shop to add to my quilt shop collection. I couldn’t pass it up, although it’s not technically a quilt shop like my others, the Pickles could have a quilt or two for sale. . .
Here’s something else that got Daddy all excited (it doesn’t take much). It was an ad on the back of some home dec magazine but I LOVE glass doorknobs and this colbolt knob just threw me.
If it were up to me, every knob in our house would be glass, but they are $$$expensive$$$ so I settled for just the heavy clear glass faceted knobs thoughout the master bedroom, here at Pickle Road, along with the door to Jeff’s office (which is off the bedroom).
I got on the glass doorknob kick after seeing THE SIXTH SENSE. Remember the ruby red glass doorknob? It got me all goose pimply! YOWZA!
The other day I was talking about hitting museums for inspiration — so while cruising the web, I was reminded of this quilt that is hanging in The Newark Museum, in Newark, NJ (so sorry, Delaware)! I find this kind of quilt to be just my taste – complicated “looking” but not so hard to do with a little bit of time and energy. I just had to show you!
FIRST of all, I want to say, I love Dick . . . but . . .
. . . one last thing (controversy, of course). What’s with Dick Clark hosting New Year’s Eve for ABC yet again. It was sweet to honor him his first year back…now it’s kind of creepy. These TV media types who just don’t know when to retire already. Sheesh!
Oh, chickens, I know I’m going to stir the pot with this one … but enough already!
If Guy Lombardo lost his arms, they would have retired him….not allow him to swing his head back and forth to lead the band in Auld Lange Syne.
If a hitter stops hitting he’s benched.
So why oh why do we have to suffer through his performance? 1) It’s painful to watch and well, it’s not like he needs the cash. And 2) the cut away of his making out with his younger nurse (you mean that’s his wife?!?) at the stroke (oops!) of midnight – well, yuck! Maybe we should put THAT on toile….
