Made a 'Haul'

des_arc_ya_yaMarch 30, 2005

Friend of my DS and DIL's is tearing down a house and has opened it up to "takers". They (my kids) got two old doors from it that they plan on using on their bedroom and bathroom.

DH and I went over yesterday afternoon and I got three small old windows. Friend is gonna use the 2 over 2 one to do a "Four Seasons" stained glass thingie in.

I also got two old wrought iron porch posts. Probably gonna use as a trellis for some kind of rose (?)

I drove past where a house used to be today that I spent a lot of time in as a teenager. My friend Marci lived there and I spent many nights there...and days...lol...Such good memories.

I used to run into her Mother at the store every now and then...but haven't seen her in a few years...I'm hoping she is in an apartment...but I don't know if she is still living or not...

Made me feel sad...I sure wish I would have known when it went down...I would have ask for parts of it.

Know what you mean, Pattico. There's getting to be more and more of those old houses coming down with all the memories with them.... ((Patti))
