It's time for Show & Tell Friday hosted by Kelli at There's No Place Like Home.
Last week while my mother-in-law was visiting from out of town we enjoyed an impromptu lunch at our local lunch counter at the invitation of our friend, J. She picked us up and we were off for a fun afternoon! The chit-chat between the three of us was lighthearted and friendly as we caught up on each other's summer activities.
Afterwards, while driving through a nearby neighborhood, we came upon a yardsale - which is not so common on Fridays around here. And if you're a yardsaler, you know how long it took for us to decide to put on the brakes to check out all the junk. Instantly we turned into the lot and skidded to a stop with a cloud of gravel dust behind us. "Professional Junk Seekers" was written all over us!
After half an hour of (unearthing everything) looking over all the stuff, I discovered an old wooden easel. I've been on the lookout for one since last winter when I took an oil painting class.
I decided that this little treasure would go great with the art set that my dad sent me (about 2 years ago)! Of course, I had to blow the dust away on the paint set to get it open but now that I have a really cool antique easel, I'm sure that the inspiration will start flowing.
Stay tuned next week....for an awesome art creation.
Now I'm off to a dinner date with my beloved husband to start off our wedding anniversary celebration (it's actually tomorrow but we're starting today!)
