Where I Whine About Too Much Work

We’re back at the store. There’s organizing galore happening. Kelle brought me this beautiful stand that her charming husband made for her baskets. She doesn’t use it anymore. I put it at the top of the steps and it fits perfectly and looks beautiful with the shetland rovings on it. This is what you see after you look at the […]
