A Day For Me

So today dawned and I certainly did not want to spend it doing housework - so a little shopping and window shopping was in order. As part of creating my craft room i am removing a window from one wall (it will go into another wall at a later date).
Well I have taken off the architraves , all ready to remove the window and..... who ever pit it in  jolly well put the gyprock right up to the window to hold it in.

So to find a way to cut the gyprock back to get the window out and bot wreck the whole sheet of gyprock in the process (and that would be 4 sheets there being 4 sides to the window of course!!) So this was the reason for the shopping expedition - to buy a Renovator - Multi tool

Such a handy little tool to. I can see some serious work with all of these attachments coming up - furniture fix ups, doors to be removed and replaced, tiles to be fixed and the list goes on.

From here I went window shopping - i spent the morning checking out a farm clearing sale (owner related to my daughter in law so i got the grand tour!). I think I am going to be seriously broke next weekend - if I manage to get the furniture i have earmarked!!!lol.

One wardrobe in serious need of repair and the other can go straight into use!
 These chairs are GOING TO BE MINE!!! I hope, and I can dream!!
 This cane basket is the mother of all baskets - it is a wool sorting basket from out of the shearing shed - who knows how old it is - this i will be bidding on for my daughter in law (unbeknown to my son!).

This little beauty on the left is very sturdy and solid still and really won't take a lot of work to bring it back to what it should be!! The 2 old sewing machines will join my other 5 oldies. Don't know what I am going to do with them all yet.

And this old fridge is going to find a home in our BBQ area - not as a fridge but as cupboard for all the utensils for the BBQ! And the dressing table will be used in our bedroom.
now all I need is to be the winning bidder on the whole lot, and that won't be easy because the owner is third generation and there will be a huge crowd in attendance!
And another finish and a start for February...
The cow at the back is finally finished and awaiting it's cushion insert, and i have started it's mate so that maybe another February finish - in amongst the renovating and the furniture restoration and the gardening and the housework!!!lol
have a lovely week everyone!!
