Memorial Day Tribute

Chase was given the opportunity to narrate this video for our Memorial Day service at our church.

Another antique made useful

Along with my little iron chairs that I found in the antique store in Newberry, I also found a coke crate in pretty good condition. I know Pottery Barn used to sell them but now it looks like they just have Pepsi crates. At any rate, I paid $8 for mine instead of the $24 PB asks for theirs! I thought about leaving in the dividers but decided against it. I was flipping through a Pottery Barn magazine and I saw that they had a coke crate on a lower shelf in their kitchen table holding some plates. I thought I could get better use out of mine by putting some dishes in it too. I me copy cat. =)

Getting crafty

I love to spend hours in antique stores and think about all the stories behind everything that is crowded
in there. But I also scrounge around
to find cheap 'junk' that I can turn into
something beautiful again.
On our way home from our family
camping vacation we stopped in the town of Newberry, SC.
They have many little antique stores and
I found several treasures to restore. Here is
one of them. I went into a room in the back
of the store and found this cute little rocking
chair sitting on a dusty shelf. I decided it could be more productive as a plant holder. =) More crafty pictures coming soon...
