Back to Demo Day

IMG_885720170817_185015Good news: Demo was completed in a couple of days, and the new stacked stone is being installed.

Bad news: The drawing of the heart on the stove top gives you a glimpse of the ‘stone’ dust that covers everything in our house. Oh happy days…

Antique Browsing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It always amazes me what you find at an antique store. It truly is an adventure browsing the many booths with their ‘treasures’.  Memories flood my brain…some good, some not so good. I especially like the picture comparing the phones I grew up with and the one I have now. Maybe I won’t show this one to my grandkids and let them think Grandma has always had a cell phone!
