Done for the day. We drove and drove and drove again. But we have such a lay of the land we actually drove back to the hotel without GPS aid. One stop was at a furniture consignment shop. I didn't buy these 3 chairs and card table. The chairs are very rickety and really need some work to stabilize them. I should of bought them anyway. I fear they will haunt me. Sigh. I need a nap. Zzzzzz. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #keepingitreal #vintage40sgirl

Back home with just one errand left on the list. We are off to the vet in minutes. But wanted to share this $1.99 Goodwill find. It's either a Haegar or McCoy planter. Will check my reference books later. I am leaning towards Haegar due to the long neck. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #vintage40sgirl

Rainy weather today messed up the plan to paint the bookcase I found on Marketplace for the living room. I told Paul I just need to see the double drum lamp in the living room lit up tonight to be happy. So he moved over a plant stand (family heirloom) so I can enjoy. Came up from the studio and this greeted me. Happy. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #vintage40sgirl #drumshade #mystyleisfinallyinstyle #atchezdepre

Last nights flea market haul. The vintage planter collection continues to grow. This obsession has been around for decades. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #vintage40sgirl #fleamarkethaul #planterobsession

So apparently I am on a vintage lamp wave. We went out to look at (and bought! FINALLY!!) a coffee table....and I bought a lamp also that she had for sale. OH MY GOODNESS....I love it. It is slag glass which is one of my favorite vintage glass types. I need to find a harp and a shade for this beauty and then it will live in the living room. And I will smile every night when I click it on. ...have I mentioned that 23 years ago Paul and I were amongst the first antique resellers on eBay? As teenagers we both would haunt flea markets together. It's who we are. And there ya go. #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #vintage40sgirl #vintagetreasure #alwayspickin

Spent the morning trying to decide on the sashing for these blocks. When first made I intended to set them side by side with no sashing. But when I put them up on the design wall they just weren't doing it. So I spent a few days dreaming up sashing. Three different sashings. I would make a few pieces and try them out but each was to much. They overwhelmed the blocks. So I puttered away on other projects. Then it hit me. Simple thin sashing from a bold print. Yep...happy Mickey. Let's sew! #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #wildangelstudio #vintage40sgirl #sometimessimpleisbest

Here is what finally happened at Chez Depre last night during the great Social Media Picture Glitch. Weather and work schedules had put this on the back burner for the last 2 weeks. The shelving cabinet was installed above the fridge and painted jadite green. The cabinets to the left are vintage robins egg blue. They are close yet different enough for the eclectic look I am after. Trim will go up on Monday/Tuesday. Look at that crazy wall situation that was A-OK in 1941 when this house was built. 🙄 And then the shelves will go in and be filled. #mickeydepre  #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #vintage40sgirl #projectalmostdone

Ok last lamp pic I promise. I am just basking in their soft fiberglass shade glow. I think I want to stay in this room until bedtime I am that happy. Oh wait. We are going out for ice cream....lol. #mickeydepre #mdquilts #quilt #quilting #atchezdepre #vintage40sgirl #haegerpottery #itsallinthelamps
