My husband and I had to drive to Waco to drop off a foster dog on his way to a new foster/potential adoptive home, and we decided to check out the Antiquibles Dog Museum. It's pretty amazing. They have ~60 different vendors, so there's a lot of stuff. I was seriously tempted by a set of four amber glass moon-and-star canisters, but I wouldn't know what to do with them and thus was loathe to part with $40.
I did however find a glass power line insulator that was unique from the ones I already have, as well as a set of mounted deer antlers and this awesome cross-stitch of an Egyptian jeweled scarab. If you look, you can see on the left edge of the picture there's a rug under my trunk now (as well as my red Toms). We've made some updates to the master bedroom, which I will get around to posting soon.
Okay so I finished this over a month ago, I just didn't want to post it because I'm unhappy with the quality of the photos. Cell phone cameras have come a long way, but they're still a poor substitute for a digital SLR. Which I can't afford right now.
I really like how the magnetic knife racks look above the sink. We have a knife block, but it took up too much counter space, which is a limited commodity in our kitchen. IKEA changed the style somewhat, so we used the old one for the spice containers by the pantry. We also bought some new dinnerware that was on sale, since I had to borrow plates from my mother for dinner on Christmas. We only had four dinner plates for seven people. Oops.
Thanks for visiting! This blog is intended for me to keep track of house projects and the evolution of my husband's and my first home. It doesn't get updated regularly, right now, due to my main focus being on school and research until I earn my degree in Microbiology.
