Can you see it, another awning found in my hometown this past week. I couldn't believe it as I said in a previous post that I rarely find beautifies such as these here, but there it was. I knew that I had to own it:
You see me and this awning have a history. Yes, we met many years ago, almost 24 years to be exact. Our youngest son will be 25 this year and he was just a baby, just leaning to walk. We had rented this really cute house and it was the first vintage home we lived in that had hard wood floors. I loved living there. We got to fix it up any way we wanted to. It had the original glass door handles and you could enter the kitchen from several sides. I think that's what made me build my kitchen I have now the same way. Okay, getting back to the awning. This sweet little awning was on our bedroom window. It sheltered us from the morning sun and while I didn't appreciate living in a house then that had this fabulous architectural piece, I now appreciate it.
The minute I saw them take it down I thought for sure that they were just going to take it down until they painted, since they were remodeling the home. But no, week after week there it sat, all by itself, to the side of the place. No movement, there didn't seem to be the possibility that it would go back in it's proper place.
Well it's now in it's proper place, with a new owner, one that will now appreciate it for it's beauty. I'm not sure I can part with it. You may see me hang it at shows, but for now it will have a NFS tag. It's like an old friend that you haven't seen in years. You want to catch up, oh the stories I'm sure that awning would tell if it could talk. This was a great day. Happy Friday to you all!
