I'm feeling a bit emotional as I write this next post as it brings me back to a time  just before the first surgery.  Cathy was still here and it was business as usual at Shizzle Design.  I was nervous about my upcoming surgery to remove the cancer from within my humerus so I took out my frustration sanding an old work table.   I fell in love with this old thing at a local flea market.  It had been well loved in it's previous life , as a matter of fact, it was downright filthy and it took hours upon hours to clean her all up.  

I've always admired the unique character of old piano stools and pick them up every chance I get.  I bought this piece several years ago so my family would have an extra stool for playing the guitar, ukulele, violin and cello. It's super cool, constructed of solid oak can adjust several inches in height.  That's one of the neatest parts of the design.  I LOVE that part.  Who's with me on this?  I can't be along because it's downright awesome!  It reminds me of old swivel desk chair hardware like that on one we sold last year. I know, I'm drawn to strange things but it's those details that really speak it me.  You just don't see that kind of craftsmanship anymore in our mass produced, face paced world. As cool as the piano stool is, the kids keep going back to the little chippy red chair that they've used since they were little and we've got a big trip we're saving up for.  The girls and I are headed to Spain in 1-1/2 years so we've started selling things out of our house that we don't use anymore.  (click link to continue reading...)
