OK, this story is really weird.
Yesterday morning I went as usual to my pal Gail’s blog to see what she was up to. I always start my morning reading her blog first thing. A day without a Gail post is like a day without sunshine. ;)
So, her topic was how to make a decorative post for plants or signs. From scratch.
I just loved how it came out, with crown molding on the top and bottom. I left her a comment to that effect and went about my day.
Well then, on my way home from the office last night instead of getting directly on the thruway, I impulsively turned the car towards a neighborhood that I knew had trash pick up the next morning. I usually wait until morning to curb shop, but was planning to travel in the opposite direction today, so wouldn’t get a chance to get back this way.
Not a lot of trash out to the curb yet; around here most people wait until bedtime or early morning to set it out.
Oh my Gosh!
Does it look familiar to you?
Why, I do believe that it looks a lot like the post Gail made!
See her cute red painted post here?
Mine just needs a base, and a cute decorative knob, I’m thinking maybe a doorknob with the backing plate to cover the spot where the banister met the post. Can’t wait to pretty it up and put it to use!
Isn’t that just the oddest thing, that I should read about and want to make one of Gail’s stands, and lo and behold, one presents itself to me that very day; practically ready to use?
Wouldn’t you say it was meant to be mine?
This was just too perfectly timed to be a coincidence. I swear we are connected somehow. It’s not the first time something like this has happened with us either.
Told you, weird, right?
Thanks for the inspiration Gail!
Shall we call mine the lazy woman’s version?
