progress break...

Yes, I said progress.
You would all be so proud of me...it has been one month (ok, one month and a day) since I posted about my old house and the to do lists I made.
Well, today I finally tackled a project on the old to do list!
I finished painting the trim in the hallway that I started two years ago (not umpteen)!!  Ok ~ it's only the first coat but it is still progress!
I did not take any before or after pictures.
It isn't really an exciting project.

However, while I am taking this progress break I thought I would show you what I found while treasure hunting yesterday in Plymouth...


I was looking for more pieces to add warmth to my booth for the fall...



Of course I am looking around my nest to see where I would put these pieces if I were keeping them.  This old food warmer would look great holding mums right now or pines around the holidays..





Keeping this old sewing machine cover would be silly because I don't sew, but would like to learn how someday...


Now I want to keep this one...


Because the color is gorgeous and...


I thought I might look really chic while checking in if I mean when I stay here someday...



Rachel Ashwell's B&B, The Prairie.
It must be on your road trip wish list too!

I guess my progress break is over.
I am off to clean up my finds so I can bring them into my booth tomorrow.
Yes, all of them!

Before I go I wanted to remind you all of my giveaway that ends this Friday the 21st (not the 20th like I wrote originally).
Go to this post to enter!

Thanks for visiting today and have a great week!

Sandi- Good for you- Isn't it great to check stuff off the list? I got a lot done in the garage last week and should be doing more right now...but ....here I sit...on the computer! I love all those old storage things..including the little brief/suit case! It must be hard to part with some of those things. xo Diana

I don't even want to think about all the "projects" I should be working on before the holiday hoopla begins! Love your finds, the brief case is wonderful, it could be used in a lot of different places and ways, love it, and everything else you brought home.

I love all that metal! I guess almost everybody does! Good buy! I'm a little closer to Rachel's Inn than you are, but it's still a heckofa long way!!! I just picked up her new book today. Your booth will look terrific with you new finds!

Jane said...

My to do list is rather lengthy too! The paint for my son's room that I bought last spring is still sitting in his room....unopened!! One day!
Great finds for your booth!!
