More re-doing and "make-doing..."


My next "Craigslist Mission" is to find a small, vintage writing desk.

I did find one I really liked, but it's in Massachusetts. That's too far of a hike to travel.

So for now, I've made do with turning my treadle Singer sewing machine into one.

Next I plan to stitch up new valances for the keeping room. I found some great ecru and black ticking fabric online!
I love ticking!

But again, for now I've made do with some pretty ecru valances I forgot I had!
Don't you love it when you find stuff you forgot you've had??
Sometimes old age and forgetfulness aren't so bad after all. Heck, it's like being a kid on Christmas morning! ((giggle))

Happy Easter, all.
