On Saturday we went up to the charity shop as I had put bids in on a couple of items. A very funky chair in a gold/yellow/floral print and a side table.
I wish I had taken my camera as the chair went for $377. It was so NOT worth that amount. When they lifted it out of the window, folk in the store said they heard all the springs rattling around in it. I was however lucky to "win" the side table with my bid of $45. Look at the legs:
It has seem a lot of life and has a lot of scratches on it but I will put something on the top to cover it.
I wanted it to put it in the living room to put my Denby Encore Sweet Pea lamp on. We haven't touched the living room yet, renovation wise.
I bought the burgundy chair at the same store the other week and here is where she sits. All the woodwork is original to the house.
I did a little sewing also on Saturday and did the next block for my block of the month club. It is the bottom one in the photo.
The top one is called Ribbon Quilt. The middle block is Electric Fan Variation. The bottom block is Yankee Puzzle. My points are not exact and I need to size all the blocks. The store supplies the material for the block, but you do have to buy all the finishing pieces for the quilt. I am not going to buy the pack as I am not too keen on it.
