{ Plunder & Pain }

Soooooo I was cleaning the house yesterday
to get it nice for our out-of-state inlaws' visit...
 
I was innocently walking through Hannah's bedroom when
 I whacked my right hand on her bathroom doorknob.
 
here is a shot of my normal left hand:
 

and
here is a shot of my abnormaly large right hand:
 
 
yowza!
uh YEAH...OUCH!
and of course I am right handed,
 but somewhat ambidextrous so I can maneuver ok....
lots of ice, advil, tylenol and elevation.
that's gonna leave a mark, huh?
 
Oh well...
 
here are a few snaps of the goodies
I brought home with me
from our trip to Kathy's ~
 
ironstone compote



ironstone pitcher on the far right ~ love the discoloration

tin shoe pincushion


beautiful white wood and wire birdcage


cream colored flower gathering basket

another little white basket

a beautiful bottle with birdcage-stopper

close-up of soldered birdcage-stopper

wire paper racks for my desk organization

a shot of my desk/worktable
I hope you are all staying cool in this miserable heat!!!
and remembering to offer constant,
fresh cool water to our outside fur and feathered friends ~
 
I'm off to get more ice for that hand now,
and maybe slip
a few cubes
down into
my
bra.

Gosh, Lori...your hand looks terrible...ice-ice baby! I can't believe how you scored with all your finds!! I love the bird cage bottle stopper thingy...so unique...and the ironstone...ahhhhhh.....ironstone! Take care....

Sandra said...

Oh my, you really did some damage to that hand and I guess you really did some damage to your check book with all of those great finds. Some seriously good antiquing. Take care of that hand. I hope you can still stitch, draw, punch etc.
Blessings,
