Show And Tell Friday
Kelli hosts a show and tell Friday. Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
When we moved onto this farm, the attached one car garage was a bulk food store. They took all of their stuff when they left, but we too opened a bulk food store. Government regulations for the licensing said we had to have 4 sinks. The only things we had to wash was a huge knife I cut cheese with and scoops that I scooped out dry foods with. Anyway, there was lots of plumbing in the back corner of the store. We ended up closing the store for many reasons. The room was not really being used. We decided that we would make the back half of it a master bedroom. Since there was plumbing in the back corner and since we had a claw foot tub I really wanted to use, I asked my husband if we could put the tub in the corner of the room. It would not be a bathroom, just the tub. He agreed and then he and my son started talking about a jacuzzi tub. I kept reminding them that we already had the claw foot tub that someone had given to us. Well, we started looking at tubs. Here is what we ended up with. Now, I would have been happy with my claw foot tub, but I am also VERY happy with what I got. Anyone who knows me knows that I love blue and white gingham, checks, stripes, etc. Guess who picked out the tile? My son made our room and put the tub in. He had a friend who helped with the tile, but he did a lot himself as well.
