By way of the Irish...

Good morning...hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! Thought I would show you some more of Johns work....a couple of years ago he did alot of work for a couple that wanted to add old world charm to their newer house....I think in total he made them over thirty pieces of furniture,all from antique lumber. We were thrilled of course when the house was featured in a local magazine!! Everything you see here (that is wood) John made,my favorite is the mantle....hope you enjoy it! All the best,Chrissy

If you click on this photo you will see the cupboard in the background,it is 12 ft.long!!!

The kindness of strangers....


While out for a drive on Sunday afternoon,we came across a tiny,run down antique shop....of all the treasures we found,it was these old photos that caught my eye...when I asked the man how much they were,he said" For you, not a red penny,you seem to be the rightful new owner" I of course thanked him,and told him how much I loved them. I thought about it on the way home,how nice it was for him to do that for a stranger, and how it doesn't take much to make someones day, he sure made mine!! Hope this finds everyone well, Chrissy

Time will tell....







Once again our little house is being looked at by scouts for a television drama called "Merdoch Mysteries",its a crime show that takes place in the late 1800's...they have done extensive filming in our area & were here not long ago taking photos of our house. We were out at the time but according to my neighbours,they loved it.They took photos inside last fall,so I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens,kind of exciting though !! All the best ~Chrissy~
