I've Joined THE CLUB

     Are you a member of a club?  You might have been in some clubs when you were growing up. You know....Girl Scouts where you were 10 years old, the Math Club in junior high,  or the Newspaper Club in high School.  But are you in any clubs now?  As an adult, I belong to several clubs.  You know, the type.  Someone writes a letter of recommendation and then the memebership votes on you.  You do community service projects and volunteer at a school.

     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!

Marsha, Would love to be a member of all your clubs! I do belong to a quilt guild club and a woman's club called Le Potpourri (which means a gathering of good things). I think I may have joined the grain sack club without even know it. lol! I have adored and wanted a vintage grain sack for a long time now. Never see them here. A couple weeks ago they offered them on Decor Steals (sister club to the one you mentioned with your butter churn) I ordered one. You could not specify color. I was hoping for a red one but I received black. Still I love it and it's so vintage looking. I am going to paint an old chari mustard colored and thinking of using part of it for a cushion.
