i found this wonderful wood flooring on craigslist.
it is from an old cotton gin built in the 1800s!
they are practically giving it away.
and i want it!
i would love to have this throughout my whole house.
the thing is, i would not want to put it in the house we are living life in now.
i want it for my "forever" house which i am hoping is our next move.
but that would mean i would have to fork out the money now and find somewhere safe to store it.
and we are talking about another four to five years!
i really want it!
i cant stop thinking about it!
so, do i buy this
dreamy antique flooring or pay for my children's tuition for next year.
of course i pick the children!
so, if you want to donate to my dreamy antique flooring account just let me know.

i went to my favorite antique store and found this beautiful vintage crewel fabric!
it was hiding behind some shutters.
there are beautiful flowers, leaves, and birds throughout it
and i love the blue, green, and taupe colors!
it also has a few stains.
any suggestions on how to clean this type of fabric?
i am not sure what it was used for before.
it came in one long piece.
so, i am thinking pillows!
got any ideas?
