The Preacher's Bench

This bench was stained a light oak. It was painted an apple green. I wonder what the Pastor would think about the new color!

The Gas Bash 2011

I attended the recent Gas Bash in Escalon a few weeks ago. I always enjoy all of the signs and guy stuff. I did not find much for myself this year. It is always fun to walk
in the shop and look at all of the signs that the owner of the property displays. His shop so neat and clean, everything has a place and is in its place.

Gone are these beautiful enamel gas station signs. This family enjoys traveling the states to find their signs.

Remember the telephone booths? I have not seen one in years, do they even have pay phones anymore?

The woodwork and unique hardware was great. He must of had a good time making them.

The old tools have a new life for years to come on these drawers.

Iron Farm Cart

I found this old cart recently on a almond ranch in a pile of scrap metal. With a little welding it works fine again. I think it makes a great coffee table or maybe a table for plants on the patio. Years ago Escalon was a railroad town. I have seen carts like this one used for moving luggage. Who knows what this cart has been used for in the years past? I think it is a real cutie!

A Peek in The Pea

This hard rock maple hutch, is new to the store this week. The shutters on the door open and close. This piece would look so nice in a garden room?

This entry table has a great time worn patina on the top. The table would be nice as a sofa or entry piece.

This table will not be in the store very long. It is a real beauty!

My Last Visit to Texas

My first morning in Texas, watching the news.

What a beautiful view I woke up to. What a surprise for me! It was so nice and warm the day before.

So we all did a lot of this.....(and much needed too).

I went through my daughter's material and made this pillow. My suitcase was to full to take it home this trip.

We found a great recipe for chicken pot pie. So we made two of them. They were very tasty. So, all and all, I had a great time and had a lot of rest. I am thinking it is about time to make the trip again soon....

Almond Trees in Blossom

Spring is almost here, the trees have blossomed. It is still very cold and we have had so much rain. This is my favorite time of the year. Yesterday it warmed up to 67 degrees and I was loving it. I am ready for more warm days.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, sandi
