New Project



The husband decided that he wanted to have one of these boats to restore.  Now the story behind this boat.  Peck's Lake (our vacation spot every year) is one of the places that the hubby and his family have been going to before he was even born.  These wooden boats were used on the lake for years, and just in the last few years have they taken them off the lake and replaced them with aluminum boats.  So, it does have history.  Now the only problem I see is how long this lovely boat stays in this same spot before it gets restored.  

Fair week is here and Sunday is the day that Sirocco will be showing his true colors!  It will be great exposure for him.  I am very excited.   I will have pictures of his stall hopefully in the next couple of days.  I will be spending about half of my time at the fair this week.

Hope you have a great week.

Well at least it is up off the ground so critters can't live under it! Great project! Have fun at the fair! :)
