This past Saturday, some of the ladies in our family had a girls’ day out.
Four generations of us got together
and did something we all enjoy;
we went to an auction.
This is the treasure I came home with –
a beautiful wooden trencher!
It was all dry and brittle looking,
so I cleaned it up and oiled it with a food grade butcher block oil.
That really brought out the grain and beautiful color of the wood.
It does have a small blemish, perhaps a created by a mouse?
I think the hole adds character.
After all, don’t we all have a few blemishes?
The weather here today has turned cold and blustery,
so I believe I will do some punching on my newest project.
Here’s a sneak peek.
