Canvas Tool Bag

Hi everyone!

I hope today has been a wonderful day for you.   If it hasn’t, I hope tomorrow will be better.  I, for one, have a lot of friends with hurting hearts right now.  Boy, it’s hard when there’s nothing you can do.   I can sure pray!!

I have been eager to show you a cool bag I found recently.  (yes, at the flea market)

door 7

Isn’t that the coolest tool bag? 

Can you believe I have something that dirty and grungy looking hanging in my living room?

Sure you can.  Smile

door 2

door 4

My aunt made the little basket years ago.  It holds old black and white family photos.

door 9

Okay, I just think things were made so much prettier and cooler way back then.  Don’t you agree?

I tell my sweet husband all the time that he’s lucky that I like old stuff so well.  The older he gets…the more I will love him.  Smile


Company coming into town this week so I will be out of commission for a few days. 

Take care, my friends.

Linking up at Coastal Charm, Cedar Hill Ranch

Having a great day! Had even a better week-end!!! Getting older here in Kansas.

Sometimes all we can do is pray and it is very powerful. Sorry so many are having troubles.

God bless you and may the rest of this ole hot summer be cooling off!

Have a nice visit,

Debbie said...

I have said much the same to my husband about liking old stuff.

The tool bag is so very AMY and looks perfect the way you have it displayed with your stuff. Just perfect.

I hope you have a wonderful time with your company, and you're right that the one thing that we can do do for our hurting friends is pray.

I love the vintage look of canvas tool bags. I have always wanted one for myself. My dad would always take one to work everyday and that's what started my interest.
