 Found this rack in the basement of the shop from the Hardware Store days.  Perfect for my flour cloth!
 Birdhouses that I found at the flea market in Sunbury on Labor Day.  They are mounted on garden shovels.  Ready for the garden.
 Just in....a lovely porcelain oven from the 1930's.  I am marketing it as a bar.

Barkcloth covered lamp shade.
 Working on windows.  Here are a few photos of the ones that I dismantled.  This one was a travel theme in support of my denial of summers end.  Her skirt is made of maps.
 He does have the whole world in His hands.

 This window had an industrial theme.
 One in honor of Otterbeins Home Coming.

Labor Day 2011

 My Friends Dad built this for his wife and her Lemon Shake business.  They were set up at The Sunbury square
Played: Im Gonna Sit Right Down and Write myself a Letter.
   They usually can be seen on the square.

At a barn sale between Sunbury and Johnstown.

I can't believe that we got it all in!

Bought two of these large kidney shaped seats.  Found them at a barn sale close to Johnstown.  Originally from a shoe store.

I took some pictures of the interior of 7 1/2 N. State St. in Uptown Westerville.  This building is for sale and I don't believe that it was used for anything for quite some time.  I have the feeling that it was used as an Art studio in the 1970's but not in a formal way.  I called the local Historian and was given the following information:

Hi Leslie – your question was referred to me. I am going to give you a list of what the 1976 business directory states was in that property. It doesn’t distinguish between floors. 

1912- C. R. Stanton , Photographer
1913 The Sanhedrin
1913 Art Gallery
1914 Board of Public Affairs
No date – W. G. Blackman, Photography
1919 Whitman Studio
1918 Red Cross Headquarters
1923-26 Sphinx Fraternity of Otterbein
Late 1920s Catholic Church – (they met uptown until they got their land up north)

Some interesting things there – many photographers which is kind of interesting in light of your photography.

A view of my shop

This was done with nails.

This one vindicates the purchase of my point and shoot camera that is always in my purse.
