This is a picture of our recently painted familyroom. The upper wall is really dark chocolate brownie dough and not what showed up in the photo. I like the 1940's tapestries and have a few. Also, not shown, but I have some 1940's hunting/fishing pictures around the room too.
This is the sewing machine I use in the house. Another old Singer. I do have to change the cabinet out because the knee depressor is in the middle of the knee space and I cannot figure out how they put both legs under there and had room to push out on it. Maybe some toothpic legged person but not this gal!
Well, enough of a break - must get back to meandering! Patsy

The chicken girls were out strutt'in their stuff in this beautiful 70's weather today. I got a kick out of them all lined up on the retaining wall. They usually don't do that.
all for now. .... Patsy

In the town of "Rock Springs" is a granite crushing operation known as "Pink Lady". I think it is only one of two places in the United States that have this color of granite to crush. It is hauled on rail cars all over. Mostly to pave railway lines around the country. I go through this small village on my way to Baraboo for groceries every week.
Half way between the Dells and Baraboo on Hwy 12 is this Antique store that is good for killing a good hour. Next to it, is another equally big Craft Mall building. Many years ago, I use to sell items there. Not successfully but it was fun for a bit.
Here are a few of todays finds at the Craft Mall and the Antiques Mall.
Two old quilts. Notice the log cabins reverse side. Both were all hand done except the new loud binding on the one which was added by machine.
The "make do" pin cushions
were my favorite find!
Well, my work weekend begins, so I am off to work! enjoy your weekend! Patsy
