Last Saturday I was on my way to get my usual Sonic Diet Coke when I made a wonderful discovery.I drove by a house around the corner that had the cutest old awnings.I had admired and loved for – oh about 20 years. Well there they were on the ground and there was a family painting the house. I went on my way and got to wondering if –just maybe they were going to throw them away??!!! I got up my nerve – and just drove by and yelled out my window “Are you throwing those “beat up-old- awnings”in the trash? I will be glad to haul them off for you- HEHE – They said “SURE” we don’t want those old things! They did ask me what I was going to do with the old things and I just told a little white lie. I said I do displays with old things – I didn’t say those displays were in my own home-??##!!
I was just like a kid in a candy store loading up my treasures and bringing them home – I just wanted to jump and cheer!!! I felt like the soccer guy making the score in the all important game!
I had a hard time going to sleep the first night I just wanted to look at it and enjoy it. What could be cuter than red strip awnings!! They just make me happy- doesn’t take much huh?
Before the cuteness
Take you back some years??
I have been keeping busy the last few days but now I only have 2 more nights before I make the trip to welcome little callie into the world. Maybe I can do one more project to fill the next 48 hours…..
