Enlarge the photos to see them well but can you spot the difference between this first photo...
.....and this one?
The first photo is the little white rack I bought today. The second is after I antiqued it a little bit with some of my trusty furniture wax. It is not easy to see on the photos but turned out really nice. I may add a second rubbing tomorrow after the wax is dry.
Friday, Jos came home a bit earlier so we could get a start to Cranberry Cottage. He came in and took one look at me and said I looked too tired still so lets stay home. I agreed with him but by 9pm I was feeling rather depressed that we did not go. We even thought about jumping in the car to get us there by midnight. That would have been silly of us. This morning, we decided to take advantage of having a Saturday here in the city to go out and buy my herb and vegetables that I want to plant up in my terracotta pots. We found all we wanted and then I found the little rack which I thought would look nice in the guest room. I might sew some little fabric hearts for it as soon as I get a chance.
Look what is peeking out from behind a number of our plants in the garden! This azalea was almost dead when we bought the house but we left it in the garden thinking it might strive again one day. That was 12 years ago and I must admit it has been placed in a corner and forgotten about. It has decided to really start to shine in its secret hiding spot.
