Weekend News

One quick image of stacked ironstone on the buffet. 
I will show the rest later. 

I have news. 
I bought a kitchen island yesterday at The Rusty Gate in Tennille, Georgia.
 It is handcrafted and is made from old windows.
 Joe is driving it here now. 
It has been measured and will fit in our space but I am afraid 
it may be a visually too large for our humble kitchen.
I will know soon. 
Plus we have Bob and Sue arriving any minute for the weekend. 
We will put them to work. 
I guess I will feed them first.

happy weekend


  1. I will have to remember to have a project the next time I have company! I hope your island works!!

  5. sounds like a fun - working weekend. enjoy! can't wait to see what you do. my mom jokes with me all the time saying i have lots of counter space. don't think i have room for an island too. but they always look so eye appealing in the fix-them-up magazines. mom got a kitchen re-do recently so she has a bit more room for work now .... but not tons. ha. ha!! ( :

  6. How fun!... you were visiting me and leaving me a comment at the same time I was here!!!

  7. Exciting! Can't wait to see the island!

  8. Looking forward to seeing it! Sounds like a fun weekend!

  9. Oh, that sounds wonderful! I can't wait to see it when you get it moved in! Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I don't have an island but I would like one. Maybe not. I don't cook much any more. I can't wait to see yours.

  11. Olive,
    How exciting! Can't wait to see it.
    Have a marvelous weekend with your guests and your island!

  12. can't wait to see pictures of your new island..have a fun weekend...

  13. How exciting! Can't wait to see it. Now have a fun weekend.

  16. How exciting Olive! I can't wait to see it. Don't work too hard and enjoy your company.

  17. Your stack of iron stone looks so pretty Olive!! I can't wait to see your new piece!!

  18. Oh my gosh Olive your island sounds incredible. I am dying to see it...and if you like it, then it's perfect. Don't worry about the fitting in part. Just make it work. Enjoy your weekend!

  19. I can't wait to see your island. It sounds very interesting!

  20. The island sounds fabulous...can't wait to see it. I wanted one for so long and everyone said my kitchen was too small, yet I had a big open space in the middle. Well, I have one and love it. Yes, we sometimes have to squeeze by one another, but tough!!

    Happy weekend!


  21. The stacked ironstone is so pretty. Ironstone is something I wish I had started collecting years ago but think it's too late to now so I admire everyone else's and dream on. You have us all intrigued by this island built of windows.

  22. So is it for the old house? Can't wait ~ you have a great eye, I'm sure it will be perfect!

  23. Oh, I can't wait to see the island made out of windows!

  24. Oh boy! It sounds heavenly! I can't wait to see a photo of it. Have a great weekend, my friend.


  25. It's always a bit unnerving
    to purchase something big
    like your island when you
    aren't 100% sure it's going
    to work. Believe me, I've
    done it a few times!! I hope
    for your sake, and Joe's, that
    it will blend in perfectly. It
    sounds really unique and YOU!

    Enjoy your company and this
    long weekend!

  26. No kidding, I'm so excited about that kitchen island - made from old windows! Sounds fabulous and can't wait to see pictures. Hurry up! ;-)
    Have a great weekend. ♥

  27. Eeeekkkk! Can't wait to see it! So hoping it will work! Has your company left yet? Is it in the kitchen yet?!?! Huh, is it?!?!? Waiting.....not so patiently I might add ;)

    Purrs to Clovis!


  28. It sounds beautiful, I look forward to seeing it! And no kitchen is too humble for a gorgeous island! Enjoy your company!
