Well, I decided I wanted to join a club. But, it's not like any of the clubs I mentioned above. It's a BLOGGER CLUB. Yep! I just put myself up for membership and gave myself permission to join. If you're a Blogger, you might already be a member of this club. You don't have to wait to be invited to join. You just join. Isn't that fun?!! You decide and then join. So that's what I decided to do, I joined THE CLUB.
I decided to join this club. The Demijohn Club. I had seen three beautiful demijohns recently at a local antique store. One was very large and very pretty, in good condition, but too big for me. The other two were better sizes for my purpose and both were in great condition. I'd visited the two smaller ones several times, and then the other morning, only one small and the larger demijohn were left. I finally decided to join THE CLUB. So, here's my demijohn making it's first appearance in our home.
This is the way our great room mantel looked after clearing out Christmas. I like the new addition to the mantel. What do you think?
Here is the demijohn in it's new home.
I also joined another club a few weeks ago, but I haven't gotten to mention my membership until just now. Yes, I've joined another BLOGGER CLUB. It's the Vintage Grain Sack Club. I was in an antique/flea market in another town a few weeks ago and I found this vintage grain sack. I was SHOCKED. I mean, completely surprised. I'd seen lots of pictures of them on various blogs, but when I saw them in person, I wasn't really sure... I took a iphone picture and sent it to a blogger buddie and I even said, "I think it's a grain sack." DUH. I was so shocked to find a dozen of them here-- in Alabama! The prices were great $36 and I asked and received a discount at the register which made it $32. I think I did okay on my purchase. I like that this one has an initial sewn on it.
After Christmas coffee table with the runner my grandmother made.
Here is the grain sack on our coffee table.
I like being in these two clubs. I'm not ready to paint my furniture or go neutral with my color scheme, but, I'm enjoying making updates that I appreciate and enjoy. I'd recommend you to join either club. I'll even write you a letter of recommendation.
Are you a memeber of a club? I'd love to hear your story!
