Last weekend, Chris and I attended two amazing estate sales.
The kind that Magpie Ethel (Laurie) seems to find on a regular basis.
I promise to share the rest of my amazing stash in a later post.
Chris had commented that the colorful bingo box top reminded him of his mother who faithfully found bingo halls no matter where they traveled on vacation. I decided that in her memory, I would do something special and so I color copied the bingo box top before adding it to a vintage picture frame.
My framed bingo art is now temporarily on my living room mantle.
Another board game is also framed and two of my favorite Magpie Ethel patriotic figurines are joining the party.
Eventually, my framed board games will end up on the wall in the downstairs of the cottage where there is a family room.
The board games triggered the rest of the mantle being made over in time to celebrate the 4th of July.
With everything focused on rehabbing and moving into the cottage, I wasn't going to bother this year decorating the mantle, but I'm glad I did.
By the way, Chris and Josie will be spending the day at the cottage on Friday with the electrician.
I can't wait to visit with cleaning supplies in hand first thing Monday morning!
Happy "almost" weekend!
