Hodgy Podgy

Happy sweet Monday sweet friends.
You know Monday does get a bad wrap.
We all love Fridays and the weekend and hate Mondays,
but its not Monday's fault, now is it. :-)
So I am going to start hating Tuesday for awhile and leave 
Monday alone. 

Now that I am done with my tirade,
I have to tell you the story about this blue pie safe.

You see Bob and I went on a pick a few weeks back.
The client had a bakers cabinet..which I thought was a hoosier,
but I was wrong. 
any hoot they had the bakers cabinet, a few small prims
and this pie safe.

All of the clients items were in the basement.
This piece was filled with glass vases.
Not sure why anyone would need that many vases at 80 years old,
but unfortunately her husband broke one...
and boy did she rant and rave about it.
Bob and I tried for a half hour trying to get this thing up the stairs.
We turned it every way we could...and did I say it is 
Well, after about five times asking the homeowner how
she got this downstairs...
she finally remembered that the railing was not on at the time.
So Bob removed the railing and we finally got it up.
Thought I was going to have a heart attack.
We were going to sell it....
but as Bob told our Facebook fans.
I am holding it hostage. LOL
(for all the work it took getting into the van,
you dang betcha)

Now I go and get the camera and who sneaks in?
Ace of course.
The funny thing is, he opened the door by himself,
but had to keep meowing for someone to let him out. was easier to get out than in Ace.

Now since the bedroom is almost complete...
I need to finish up on my penny rug.

Added some green.

Plus some some more blue.

The star in the middle is finished.
Now working on the diamonds,
and finally the border.
Sometimes I wish now I had the money to buy that antique one.
Lot of work involved.

On a final note,
I want to thank you all for the awesome comments
on our guest bedroom redo.
It meant alot to both Bob and I.
More pics to come.

Oops another final note:

I am working on plans for our bedroom now.
Once I have everything drawn out...
Bob will do the hard part again.
I already bought a new old door for it already!

I hope everyone gets tomorrow up hating Tuesday now. LOL

PS. Does anyone know what happened to my blog list. I can only see the most current post from all of the blogs I not know what happened. Any ideas?

Hodgy Podgy Blessings To All!


  1. Janice, your escapades bring a smile. I always enjoy your blog and pictures.

  2. Love your pie safe find - just like your sweet Ace! Jane

  3. Ace is so cute! I watched the moving guys load/unload our furniture recently. I don't know how they hold out to pick up furniture all day every day! Thankfully, everything made it ok!

  4. I would hold onto that wonderful pie safe too.
    Even Ace loves it.
    I think it was meant to be yours.
    Woolie Blessings
    The guest room looks wonderful too
