 These twins are not mine... I do have identical twin girls, though... My daughter and I will always pick up a buffet... No matter the condition... To my husband's dismay... As you have heard... I hear constantly that the barn needs to be purged... But... I wanted a piece of furniture under my bedroom window... To organize paperwork... Of course...…

Like Peggy... Growing up, I spent many, many, many, many... (Did I say Many???) Days on my Father's Homestead... We often find our customers staring at the canvases... Like this barn...

We collect a lot of chairs at our house... And... My husband is constantly wanting to get rid of them... But... I patiently hold my breath as I say... "I know we will use them some how"... Never fails... If I can keep him from dumping them... And... Come up with something... He will always make something functional... (Don't tell…

When I go hunting for a piece of furniture to refurbish... I often stretch my mind to see what the finished piece might become... But... This piece snapped the rubber band stretch... My daughter often goes with me, when we search... And... I trust her to know when something might work... Often.. The pieces are ones no one else wants...…
