Two of my favorite things.
But for years and years they have been tucked away in the
bottom of a closet.
However, during my recent cleaning-out, decluttering,
destashing, tossing, and furniture moving...
I finally found a place for them.
I have always thought they look like swans.
They are big. 2 feet wide and high.
I found them hanging on a tree at a flea market in
Michigan. It was love at first sight.

I have 10 antique cast iron doorstops in my collection,
and yesterday I started listing them for sale.
I took these photos so I can remember how they looked
after they are gone.
Here are the antique cast iron doorstops in my etsy shop~

It is just a small wall,
but I am so proud of my husband and I
for building it.
Over twenty-five years ago
we added air-conditioning to our house
And they needed a place to add a
cold air return.
So my husband and I tore out an uninteresting
cabinet so they could put a vent in.
And we have lived with this black hole
We always thought we would add bookcases or something
But nothing ever happened and recently
we decided a plain wall would be just fine.
I have never build a wall before
so the lumber yard was the first stop.
For instructions and materials.
We used molding recycled from the "black hole"
for the top and bottom of the wall.
A new wall.
And you can see that we have a real life.
Notice our ever-present vacuum.
Next project is some more painting
in this room.
I was going to change the yellow paint in this room,
but when Home Depot could match this 15+ years old
Ralph Lauren color exactly i decided not to.
