After the inspiration of the rug show we HAD to keep the excitement level up there! What better way to get the brain churning and the heart pumping but a little junking! Since we spent a good part of Wednesday viewing rugs and being inspired (and of course buying some MUCH NEEDED (or was that just COVETED!) wool and patterns we headed off early Thursday morning to 5 Corners Antiques in Essex Junction for a little additional shopping! WELLLLLL, we both (Diane and I) bought a few items that we will turn into treasures with either some punch needle or small hooked pieces. Spurred on by hubbies (Gord must have been feeling guilty about the golf watch he bought in the spring that cost so much it could keep me in wool for months!) we spent a few hours rummaging and came up with the following treasures:
Hmmmm, looks like Diane out bought me! And of course she found a scoop after I had already bought mine with wonderful red paint and rust! Oh well – I can dab a bit of red on mine and age it up so it looks a bit grungier. I did find one later that had a big bite out of it!
Meryl sent me this picture of her recently completed Shelly Atkinson Streetscape colour planned by her and Bev Vandershoor with mounting and framing courtesy of Nick Vandershoor. Love this piece!!!
