Another forey into antique shopping, but this time at the Hillsborough Antiques Show with my friends Priscialla and Scott. Scott didn't think this Ansonia & Co. figural clock with Shakespeare's Hamlet was that heavy until we were only half-way though the back building and still had another building to cross before even getting to the parting lot. Believe me, it is heavy!
Day 7 - Something You Wore:
My trusty throw-on-and-go fleece rhuana with all DorothyL, 4MA, ASPCA and Stitches West pins along with a scarf I'd crocheted. What you can't really see is that the scarf has a silver metallic thread running through it that makes it sparkle wonderfully in the light.
Day 8 - Window
I had always wanted to do stained glass. This was my second project and I love it. Unfortunately, I soon discovered that (1) it is very expensive to do and (2) I wanted to make large windows. Being an apartment dweller, that's not really practical, so this was also my last project.
Day 9 - Red
Red is such a major color throughout my apartment and my wardrobe, it wasn't a matter of finding something red to photograph, it was a matter of deciding which things to photograph. Here is Teddy Bear, whom I've had since I was 5 years old, resting among some of the needlepoint pillows I've made, along with my red satin nightshirt.
Day 10 - Loud
I was feeling a bit stimyed on this one until I heard that annoying "beep...beep...beep..." that large vehicles make when backing up. As I had an errand to run anyway, I grabbed the camera, drove to the end of the street and, sure enough, there it was.
