Vicki and I both appreciate all of the kind words regarding her surgery and recovery.
The eerie coincidence I refer to is the ironing board Vicki had posted in one of her latest blogs. I,too, have fell heir to a similar ironing board, only mine was a gift from a friend.I am not into collecting such things, but I felt it was so quaint and unusual, it would be a nice piece to display and use as well.That's the kind of collectibles I have around my home.Things with a purpose that I can actually use.

There were no markings on mine only a few handwritten notations. SOLD J R Pierce and what looks like it might say pd.100.Don't know if Mr. Pierce paid $1.00 or $100.00. Either way, I am assuming he or she passed away, and their dwelling and it's contents was leveled to make way for some one to plant crops. Nevertheless, the ironing board found a nice home with me.I will put it on display along side of my old time quilting frame when I begin remodeling my basement.I have been in the remodeling mood lately ever since visiting a local Elementary School that was converted to a Peddler's type mall containing several rooms of Primitive displays.I returned home that day with so many great ideas circulating in my head. I only hope I can pull them off in my remodeling attempts.Decorating has never been one of my strong suits, but I'm anxious to give it a try.My style is more of an eclectic style,but I do want to try using some of the ideas I saw that day.I am so excited about this venture,regardless of how it turns out. I am a trial and error kind of girl, and I feel I can live with whatever evolves from my experiment.If all goes well, you may see pictures later.
