I am on another kick again.We have cable, and about a bazzion channels (but nothing to watch) and one day, I click on the Sundance Channel and ta da, there it is my all time favorite show ever. And I mean ever. Law and Order. The original. And they were showing the very early shows (the ones that most channels do not show). I set up a program and I was set. After work I settle down on my couch with my cat and we enjoy non gory crime with Lenny, Mr. Big (Chris Noth), Mike Stone and Paul. Such a well written show and Lenny has the best lines. Did you know, he started out on the show playing a lawyer?
Spending today taking down some of my summer decor and thought I would share some pics. I have the sound of College football on the TV (love it!) and I have been going out periodically to check on the hubby. He is currently putting new brakes on my Jeep. I have to make sure he is not trapped and screaming for help. So far so good. Isn't this boat a dream?! Found at a Flea Market. I came around the corner, saw the color and instantly fell in love. And the seller even let me bargain and I got it cheap.
Now if only this car was full size and drive-able. It would be my perfect car. Gorgeous isn't she? Found in Oregon in a shop I was not really enthused about. Lots of furniture and junky stuff and then my eye spied this little beauty.Would she fit in my suitcase? Oh yes she would.
You would think with all the nautical items I collect, that we live by the sea, no, but we do vacation there every year. We look on Oregon as our second home. This tin called to me as I was getting into the car in Florence, Oregon. It was in the window of the shop and I told the hubby to wait just a minute. The next thing he saw, was myself walking into the display and grabbing this tin. Worth the effort and the slight embarrassment.
I have a major thing for clocks. They are everywhere in my home. This beauty was found in an old store and it had a little label that said, "Sorry, it sometimes works." I didn't care, it was gorgeous and it had a Sternwheeler on it. And when it is working the little wheel on the back of the boat turns. Charming!
This lampshade was the biggest surprise, steal, emotional sale I have made. I grew up with Rooster and Roses china and started to collect it when I was older. I have amassed a collection of over 75 pieces and to find this original lampshade was so lucky. It was in a closeout sale at an antique store, in a bin and was only $1.00. I knew exactly what it was when I saw it. Water stains and aged, it is a beloved treasure to me. :) Off I go, time to finish my clean-up and check on the hubby. Always, Kit
