Old Textures...

As I have a "new" eye out for wabi sabi things in my life...

I started to look around my studio and found some of the nicest textures. I would love share them with you to enjoy them as much as I do everyday! This is a close up view of each...and memories of each...

birdhouse from old wood
given to me by my friend Carol
I was going to take it home 
but it sits on my sewing table 
and I just love it there- 
she sews also so it reminds me of her.
my love- old bookshelf found in an old barn
my other love-Mark helped me clean and seal it!
I have been offered good money for it and 
no there is no price that is worth not having it...
oh but don't tell Mark!

old clock- doesn't work but it is beautiful!

 old velvet couch
given to me by my Mother-in-Law
now sitting in that velvet couch in the heavens.

 old chest- another great find
holds my dishes for everyone!

 old picket fence
Mark found this one for me in the trash
in our building-prize find!
 old quilt
my Mom gave it to me
old doll dress with metal embroidery
hangs above my work table- 
I look at this everyday- love it.
I found this at a doll show for $20...
been offered good money for this one too- twice.
Don't tell Mark about this one either!

Life can hand you beautiful things-
like friends and family who share wonderful things with you!
Old can be so cherished and 
speaks of many years of loving use in another's life


  1. Beautiful Leslie, as always thank you for sharing!

  2. Im looking for some info on my Grandmother's green velvet couch! could you post a picture of your couch? or email a picture of it to me? Do you know anything about your couch? Looks to be the same color as mine! Thank you!
