SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY

Today it is once again time for show and tell over at Keli's house. I haven't participated in a while and I have really missed it. I enjoy looking at every ones items. Today I want to show what I got for free last weekend. It is a gossip bench. I have always wanted one of these and saw one at an antique store on the 4th of July. It was very expensive so I passed it up. Much to my surprise I was looking around on Freecycle and saw one. I was the lucky one to have received it!

I am not sure where I am going to put it and I don't have a land line phone to put on it but I like it! :)

I love your gossip bench! I have also always wanted one, though I don't know where I'd put it! Last week I was strolling through shops in town and my favorite shop had one. It was painted white and they had antiqued it a bit, sanded the edges, etc. It was so cute! They were asking a lot for it so I will just wait to find my own! Glad you did! Lovely post...Kathy

Very cool! I'd set up the phone books and the cell phone charger on something like that. But my luck would be it would turn into a cat bed. All our chairs seem to turn into cat beds! ;-)
