Projects, projects! Making my list easier... plus Kesterson's Antiques in Madisonville.

Projects...

Do you have some projects to do that you feel are languishing on the back burner way too long?

I do. And maybe you do, too.

Today I'm going to start doing (keep doing) the "regular" things, just spending less time on them.

This will hopefully make time for other, just-as-important, projects.

Looking for antiques...
I recently re-visited the city of Madisonville, Kentucky. I got to visit a great antique store there called Westerson's Antiques. This store recently uncovered a beautiful sign on the side of the building. The newspaper was called, and many customer's came to visit.

This place reminds me of other fun General Stores I have visited. There are neat items in all the nooks and crannys there, plus, if you listen hard, some great stories and history of when the building was a grocery store.

Last time, I cleaned out her collection of hatboxes. I needed those. And found that finding hatboxes is not easy. They do have some new ones out there, but they are hard to find.

I loved the floor best. It's uneven, with character. And there is a place there where things, like jewelry and lamps, can be fixed. Be prepared to see some neat things there.

Here are some photos of my most recent visit there:

All for now,
