(Monday morning)

Our kitten saga continues....

Just when we thought all the kittens might be out of the attic...#4 baby fell down into the wall Saturday night. Of course...not in the same place as the other 3, so we had to cut another new hole in a different wall to get this one out!  We're really thinking there might only be four...but we are waiting about a week or so to see if we hear anything going on before we get the roofers out to do any repairs!

Is there anyone out there that would like to adopt a yellow tabby case we come up with a 5th one?? Please let me know if you're interested! Right now, we're figuring this little guy is about 6 weeks old!
(UPDATE ON THE KITTENS...there are at least 2 more!!)

On a different note....

This is for the girls who are in our Civil War BOM club...if you haven't picked up your kit,
or if you did, and you didn't open it up to look at it....the "freebie" this month is a coupon for 25% off any one cut of fabric.(It can be any amount of yardage as long as it's one cut!) It's only good until June if you think it might come in handy, don't forget it's in that packet!


We went to VA on Friday and came back with a bunch of goodies for the shop...I'm cropping the pictures now...I'll have them up later today sometime! But if your out and sure and drop by and see all the new pieces for yourself!  

Several new finds in this pic...

I wanted to get this picture up tonight...but I think I'll have to take my camera back in with me tomorrow and snap another pic or two of this great little table that Shawn just finished today...

 This is a circa 1820 - 1840 PA. Country Sheraton style one drawer stand. Composed of walnut and poplar with hand turned legs, dovetailed drawer, cut square nails and early iron screws.
Shawn hand scribed, milk painted, rubbed and finished this piece, turning it into a period game table. Colors are federal blue, salem red, mustard and lexington green.
Awesome, one of a kind piece...$395.00 (SOLD)

 (this is a better up close photo of the top...approx. 18" square)
