So I decided to put it above my mantel...the mantel that is so hard for me to decorate, it's so long:) I always feel like I have to much stuff up there but it doesn't look right to me if there is only a couple things. As you can see I took down the black painted mirror, didn't look right there,

Here's my work space out in the garage:) Stush doesn't mind me being out there with him, so this morning I decided to put some stain on a sign I had made last year, I had it up above my kitchen window but for some reason you really couldn't see it very well. After I stained it I thought about where to put it , it's not the best done sign in the world but the wording is special to me:) It's the name of a store that used to be in a town called Charleroi back in the 50's, I used to go there when I was a little girl with my mom, from what I can remember they sold fabric, thread,lady's slippers, hankies and I just think it was a store for ladies. What always facinated me was the way they took your money....they would put it in a cylinder of some sort then with a pulley they would pull on it and away it would go up to the second level of the store to the cashier, he or she would make the change and send it on down in the same way:) I thought it was an old fashioned way even back then:) The name of the store was Kirk & Clark's and I have fond memories of mom and me there, mom loved to shop too!
