I admit that I love a good garage sale. I can usually find some good books or a pretty dish or two for some loose change and I usually go home feeling proud of myself for being so frugal.
And last weekend was no exception. I found several children's books for my grandson and an old spinning wheel for me! It is in rough shape, but I think that adds to it's beauty.
This is definately just for looks and not useable (I wouldn't know how to use it anyway!), but I just love it.
For now, I have it in one of the unfinished rooms where it will wait to be placed somewhere in this old house. I think that a big green plant may look great setting on it. Oh, and in this picture you can get a glimps of the cradle that my father hand made for my daughter 28 years ago.
