    I was so surprized to see that metal! I didn't even notice it at first because everything was so dirty!!

    Thanks Monica! It's been more work than I think I want to handle again any time soon, but I'm sure pleased with her! :)

    That is a huge endeavor, but well worth all the hard work.

    Enjoy Hazel!! She is gorgeous!

    WOWIE! what a transformation! You did an excellent job! Looks like a keeper.

    I like your dutch ovens too. DH bakes in 2 14 inch Lodge ovens. People loved his scones so much he started baking them to sell. He burns maybe 1 batch in 100.

    Howdy! Just popping in for a moment. Can anyone help this person?

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-156922-1.htm

    She was given a bentwood case that is heavy and it appears to be locked. Someone located a key on eBay for $24. Maybe someone has an extra key they could sell her for less.

    Oh yeah, her DH wants to just break it open. Yikes! Rescue her if you can.

    Thanks. :shock: :shock: :shock:

    It's been cut down!!! Look how close to the floor it is...

    Maybe for a child?
    The ad said for a coffee table. What a travesty! :thumbdown:

    We love our blackpots and now have grown the herd to a 14, a 12, (2)10's, (2)8's, and a 5...only used them once this year and didn't do our "Annual Dinner Party at the Lake" this year either....weather was too wonky for too long, and then this shoulder thing of mine popped up... Normally we have a dinner party with anywhere from 12 to 20 guests, using only the blackpots...great fun!
