Althought I claimed to be soooo busy the few days before my son's wedding....I did manage to find time to go the barn sale held twice a year in Plymouth Mi...and although I claimed to be sooo broke (of course, because of the wedding)I did manage to purchase this pie safe at the sale. Guess it just goes to show, that you can always scrape up enough dough to buy something you really want...(either that or I like to display fits of self-sacrifice)..whatever my reasoning...I finally bought an antique pie safe.
Pat and her husband, Steve picked it up early this spring from a yard sale. It was literally in pieces....I wish I would have taken a "before" picture of it. I had seen it at their July barn sale, sitting in a heep in their corn crib (not for sale at that time). I had forgotten about it, until I went into their barn last Thursday and saw it standing in all it's glory! I grabbed the price tag off and paid for it without batting an eye....even though I knew I didn't have a place for it....but I simply could not pass it up. And check out the mouse hole with it's rusty tin cover. Still intact with one little rusty nail holding it in place. Have a great evening everyone!
