unday afternoon, enjoying a drive in the Camero and picking up treasures by the roadside. Today was the perfect day for a drive in the country.
My husband is so proud of this car. He worked for 32 years at General Motors and retired earlier than expected due to the troubles that GM experienced. As part of his retirement package, he received a voucher to put towards this car. It gives me great pleasure to see him so happy. I love taking drives with him in this beautiful car.
We weren't prepared financially for him to retire early so he has retired to another full-time occupation.
n the side of the road we noticed a pile of stuff with a few people going through it. We turned the car around and spotted a couple of items that looked promising.
couple was cleaning out their garage and they placed unwanted items alongside the road for people to take.
This is what we found.
Isn't this little chair adorable? I'm sure I'll find a place for it in the garden. I think this chair would be a great spot for a pretty pot of flowers.
Hmmm.....maybe a different shade of paint?
Look at this nice little ottoman. It's in excellent condition.
The best part is it can be used for storage. Haven't decided if I will keep it this way for awhile or cover it with different fabric. Dave and I have been talking about getting a little ottoman to use with our swivel rockers in our 5th wheel camper. Hmmm....there it was on the roadside waiting for us to arrive and give it a home.
While perusing different blogs, someone demonstrated how to redo an ottoman and add tufting. I think I need to keep a notepad and jot down all the wonderful blogs with DIY projects that I would like to try.
If you are wondering what the large fonts are all about, go visit Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. She discovered a wonderful blog called The Daily Drop Cap. Jessica Hische, an illustrator and designer, has posted an illustrative initial capital letter daily (since 2009) that you can use - for free - in your personal blog posts. They are not for commercial use. (~Claudia, Mockingbird Hill Cottage)
Thanks Claudia for sharing this wonderful website. I believe in synchronicity. Today I was having a discussion with someone about the need to be more creative with font styles on my blog. While visiting Claudia's space there it was, her posting about fonts.
It's funny, I've had some wonderful experiences with synchronicity this past week.
