We went to an auction all day Saturday. This couple has been friends with my Go Postal's family as long as he can remember and they are downsizing to a garden home....and so they had to downsize their possesions as well. We went with the intention of bidding on this sideboard. We picked a spot out for it in the cabin before we left. Dr L was a Dentist but also a very talented woodworker. He made this out of old church pews from the church. He had even lined several drawers with felt and put in organizers for silver. Go Postal also got a planer and dust collection system. We picked up some other items as well....and the real bargains were to be had at the end of the day when the crowd started to thin. They grouped together a whole box of linens and I got it for $10 not really knowing what I would find. Mrs L's mother was a fine needleworker and inside the box where several napkins and guest towels she had embroidered. There was also and appliqued block (and the fabric for the rest of the quilt) What Fun. We will treasure this piece in our home because of its beauty, but mostly because of our love for the craftsman and his family.
