The Burlap Harlot

          A craft Show Extrordinaire!
If you weren't here, this is a bit of what you missed

 Monica worked her usual designing magic.
 Typewriters always remind me of my childhood.  Mom is a writer so there was always one clacking or simply sitting on the dining room table waiting to be clacked.  She's computer savvy now so the clacking is softer.
 See these beautifully aged shutters?  They came home with me.  I couldn't help it.  They said, "Lyyyyynnnn, can we go home with you?  I am a sucker for shutters.   and old books.   and room dividers.   and pitchers.  and Eiffel Towers.  and book shelves.    and sheet music.
 If I had a spot for this, It would have come home with me, too.  Isn't it beautiful?  I stood in front of it for a long time thinking, "OK, now.  What can I give away to make room for this?"

 This was a vintage suitcase all goodied up inside and displaying necklaces and such.

I should have bought this suitcase.  I am already regretting it.
