Mr. Squash and I headed out early this morning to an estate sale in a tiny, Oregon town about 29 miles from us. It was listed as "Caledonian Farmhouse Estate Sale". There were to be antiques, vintage clothing from the 1800's, vintage fabric and lots more. When we got there I saw a woman with an armload of gorgeous, antique clothing - she must have taken it all because I didn't see any more. There was also no fabric to speak of left. But....
...almost immediately I saw this odd cupboard. I went over to take a look and started to get excited! I've been looking for something to organize my fat quarters!
When I opened the door, I was instantly sold! I just couldn't believe my luck! The shelves are just wide enough for nicely folded fat quarters and I'll be able to fit lots of them inside as it is 50" tall! I have just enough space left in my tiny studio for it to fit! It's most definitely Shabby Chic - not really Squash House style, but I'll use it as is for now until I figure out a fun way to paint it. I'm thinking a Primitive Milk Paint - any other suggestions?
I went in search of someone to hold it for me while we looked around. Who should I find, but someone from our fly fishing club along with his wife, who were part of the sale! We only know about a dozen people in town and seem to run into them all quite frequently - even this far from home! They live near us, but joined with the farmhouse owners for the sale! It's truly a very small world.
Speaking of fly fishing, Mr. Squash and I are flying in to the Minam Lodge for a few days of fishing on Monday. If you haven't read my Minam River Wedding story on the left sidebar, grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the story! We'll be back on Wednesday with what I hope are some really good fish stories!
