Licking does work!

So I dashed off to the antique mall today.

Dad had the kids and I ran!

Anyways I got to there to find that the table I have been drooling over was still there. I told the very nice guy working there the other day that I had licked it so no one else could get it. He gave me a very odd look. But, I did put it in layaway.

Sadly, I went back to drool some more and there were 2 ladies looking at it. The one had decided that MY TABLE would be perfect in her house! The nerve! I just smirked.

She was very heartbroken when she went up front and told the cashier that she wanted that table. I felt bad for her but happy for me. I was going to do the Snoopy dance for her but I thought in that state she might slap me.

I didn't even get a pic of it, so you will just have to wait for the kitchen reveal to see it. Seems like everything I want and take a pic of before I buy it gets sold.

(Insert a moment of silence here for my perfect Tara desk lookalike I didn't get.)

I also found a gorgeous matelasse coverlet to go on my new sleigh bed. I put it on the bottom of the pile cause I am still thinking about it. I am sure that I will go back and get it though. It has some yellowing and I need to do some research to see if I can get it out.

Maybe I will have 2 reveals next month!

I better get busy!

I can tell you how to get DIRTIES out of everything ... I use it all the time on all our vintage fabrics & vintage feedsacks that have storage dirties from a ba-zillion years ago. I sell it my shop & our client swear by it also. Trust me oxy & biz are worthless up against this product!

It is called ~

Really? I am leary about ruining the vintage fabric. I got to order some of this! Can I order it online in your store?
