Potic Weekend


This weekend brought a quick but much needed trip up to Potic Cottage. On the agenda: insulation and leaves.
Taking a bit of time to unwind, Liv and I decided to peruse the Ravina Flea Market. Nothing restores calm like buying other people's junk. And look at this goodie I found: a mod vase for $5. It appears I was not alone in my quest for second-hand treasures, bumping into the fabulous blogger Jean of Renovation Therapy, who has a gorgeous place in the area. It was a pleasant exchange, though I was distracted with eyeing her basket to see what she had already snagged. No matter, there was enough junk for us all.
Back at the cottage, James pulled out the last of the walnut slabs to discover they fit perfectly at the top of the stairs, one stacked on top of the other. We celebrated by hanging out in the stairwell with a bottle of prosecco. We raised a glass to his handiwork, and another to my leaf raking, and a third, just because.

So nice to run into you! That vase/bottle/thingamabob is too cool! I did well at the barn, will post my finds later this week.
