I found an interesting item at an auction recently. It's an accordion style sewing box. I had never even seen anything like it, but I liked it and bought it thinking I would paint it.

I feel like I hit the jackpot last week, but I don't play the lottery so I know it was God's blessing. My husband listens to a radio show called Tradio and someone advertised that they were cleaning out a basement and were selling antiques. I went with Emily to check it out and they had a lot of cool stuff mostly from the Thirties and at supper good prices!

It's weird how inspiration strikes me sometimes. I was leafing through an old BHG magazine and I noticed a high chair in the background of one of the photos. Then I thought I have two highchairs, I should do something with them! Funny they've been sitting there for quite some time.

This is the best cheesecake ever! I love everything about it. We sometimes add fruit to the top, or a raspberry sauce, but you can also do chocolate. My aunt gave us this recipe and it has become a family favorite.
