Well, I'm officially trying to post my blog using Google Chrome now. Let's see how this turns out! I'll let you know at the end of this post. LOL!
I have been eyeing old hay rakes for a few years now. Most of them were very expensive or not exactly what I was looking for. I stumbled upon one the other day at an antique store and decided it was time to bite the bullet. I snatched it up and brought it home with me.
Then, I had to decide where to put it. I tried many places. I thought it would go in my kitchen or dining room at first. I even had it in my foyer for a brief moment. Then, it ended up in a better spot, in the sitting room. I liked it leaning up against the secretary in there. It just seemed to fit.
So here it is in all it's vintage glory!
You can see that it is rather large. Now you know why it was a challenge to find the right spot for it. Look how old it is. It is obviously hand made.
At first, I worried it was too rustic or primitive to go in my home, but then I liked the fact that it was a nice contrast to some of the other items I have. I think that is what I like about it the most. I don't want everything to be old or everything to be elegant. I want a mix. That keeps things interesting.
I decided to move my striped runner in here too. I just folded it in half. I liked it against the grey.
So, if anyone needs some hay put out, I guess I've got the rake for you!
Now, my verdict on Google Chrome is..............SUCCESS! It is slightly different than what I was accustomed to, but it did allow me to load pictures and it downloaded them quickly. Score! So, hopefully, this problem is solved for good.
Thanks for stopping by!
