YOU won! And YOU won!

. . . but before I tell you who the YOUs are, you have to look at a couple of pieces of furniture that were finished before the workshop was closed due to 'it's too dang cold to paint outside anymore'.

Both of these pieces were originally painted to be sold at Miss Maggie's House.  But I'm sure you all are like me . . . you fall in love with your creations and decide to keep them instead!

This first piece fits perfectly in a spot in my kitchen.  I'll never find anything else that is narrow enough to place there.  If I do, I'll sell this!

ASCP French Linen, distressed with dark and clear wax.

This desk belonged to my grandma.  It is not old, not very well made and in my opinion not very useful as far as a desk goes but my grandma was a ferocious letter writer and I can still picture her sitting at this desk.  She also filled her letters with newspaper and magazine clippings of things/recipes/tidbits of information she thought we could (should?) appreciate.

So, of course, I have to keep this piece too!

ASCP Granite and Old White.  Again, distressed (because I love everything about a distressed piece of furniture!) with dark and clear wax.

And I want to keep this desk so much!  (Hmmm . . . seems I have a desk obsession going on, doesn't it!)  But I have no room for it . . . YET!  So it is for sale at Miss Maggie's House and I will cry real tears when it goes to it's new home!

When I soaked the handles to clean them, they came out with the most beautiful patina!  Now, you just can't duplicate that!

ASCP Paris Grey and Country Grey.

Okay, I've digressed far too long from the reason for this post.  

You want to know if YOU are one of the YOUs that won the wedding bits and pieces.

Well, if YOU are Becky from Junk to Joy or Jill from Jill Ruth & Co 
. . . YOU WON!

I'll be emailing you shortly.

The main man and I are alone for Thanksgiving this year (that's okay.  I have Christmas at my house!) and I am not cooking a thing!  I think McDonalds will be open.  lol

Wishing you all with big, wonderful, loving families a blessed Thanksgiving!
