Twyla on Tuesday


Hello, sweet friends!
I'm going to give you a sneak peek at a cabinet we bought for our fantasy craft room!
No one usually gets passed those doors,
but I'll make an exception and invite you all in.

Lindsey and I were in one of our favorite antique stores a couple of weeks

ago and our eyes immediately fell on these adorable aqua blue glass knobs!

We discovered that the knobs were definitely worth the asking price and the cabinet

would be very functional also.

I don't have a truck or a van and it wouldn't fit in the back seat so in the trunk it went.
No rope either, but I had a skein of yarn!
Wrapped tightly as possible we set out on our journey home with our new treasure.
I drove very slowly and we checked it frequently to make sure it was okay.


We had a good laugh (and I'm sure others did too) and on the way home Lindsey
said, "This is why we are called Two Crazy Crafters!"
Thank you for visiting today!
Wishing you all much happiness!
Twyla

Nothing can stop a woman on a mission! Sounds like some of the crazy stuff I have done before. You should have seen what I stuffed into a PT Cruiser!

Perfect find, the knob alone is a treaure. I would not have wanted to leave it behind either. What is the name brand on the yarn, what a fantastic product boost for them, "Strong but Soft".

Yarn saves the day again

Hi Twyla and Lindsey,
yes I agree beautiful cabinet. Those knobs are just so 'vintage' I think. Great buy there.
Are you going to make any alterations to it?
Pretty blog as usual, I do hope everything is okay with you both,

Twyla, I think we are all TCCers at one time or another! When you just have to have it, girl has to make do with what is on hand. I have goosebumps on my arms just thinking about the joy you both must have in adding this to your craft room. Might we be getting the full peek on June 19th???? I do hope you will be sharing in "Where Bloggers Create". You have the most lovely vintage things to share. I for one would love a ticket! Elizabeth

The cabinet alone is a sweet find, but the knobs are the selling point!
I would have bought it too.
I had such a good time coming home when I found this old table that I posted, a little crazy is a good thing now and then.
Love, Mary
