Wormholes (198/365)

“'Tis no sinister nor awkward claim
Picked from the wormholes of long-vanished days,
Nor from the dust of old oblivion raked.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Exeter, in Henry V, act 2, sc. 4, l. 87. On Henry's claim to France; "sinister" means erroneous or underhanded.

TIME:  6:37 PM
PLACE:  Front porch
SUBJECT:  Barnwood shelf edge.

Dana and I went to the local flea market this morning before she headed home.  I’ve been searching for a certain something to place on my front porch to hide the 2nd entrance door ~ Our home was a duplex until we expanded and made it single housing and we don’t use the 2nd door at all ~ I wasn’t sure what I would put there, but I figured I would know it when I saw it.  One vendor had a two piece hutch made with weathered wood from an old barn.  Bingo.  I talked to the dealer who said she could take $35 off the price.  Tempting, but I didn’t commit right then.  I did take a picture with my cell phone to show HH later.  I showed him the photo and Dana, the enabler, *wink* agreed that it would look good on my porch.  So, dear Dana, due the the pressure that you put on me *ahem*, I caved.  After you left, I went back and purchased the hutch.  It fits the spot perfectly and I love it.  See, you can be a good influence!

WooHoo! Somehow I knew that lovely piece would find it's way to your front porch - especially after I explained how it would really be saving money in the long run :)

I love things made with old wood! You need to show us the whole hutch now!
