If I'm not searching for oil paintings, books, small statues, and pottery, it's wood and glass objects. Actually it's anything that speaks to me and preferably at a bargain price. I picked up this wood piece at Goodwill for three dollars. It still had its MaLeck Woodcrafts Wingate, N. C. , tag on it. If I remember correctly these woodcraft pieces were rather popular in the seventies.
I knew how I wanted to use this wood piece with the slanted shelves. It would work as a storage unit for some under-the-sink toiletries. It would probably look more feminine if it was painted, but I'm inclined to stay with the original design.
My other find was a glass bottle. A paper print of an old family picture may get tucked inside. I like putting something inside bottles or under cloches.
The grandkids are back in school so it has been quiet around here. I started a Danielle Steel book. I haven't read one of her novels in years. This one came out in 2009. So far I'm enjoying Matters of the Heart.
