Look What I Found...

Bonjour everyone!   It is Friday and Hobo decided to stay home to work today.  Yay! But that is not what I wanted to talk to you about. ☻ Have you all ever heard of Nancy Anderson? For those of you who do not know her, she is a collector of rusty things, dreamer, and an artist located in Colorado.

2nd Attempt I was given about 5 desk drawers over a year ago.  Hobo gave me the weird look when I accepted them.  He said, "Now what do you need those for?".  Well...I do not know but they are cool!  They are small drawers.  Look at that wood?  It has aged to almost perfection! Okay...this is scawy!  I will have to drill holes in this perfect, aged, old drawer.   I was bound to mess it up.  Before drilling into this wood I did a test run with a cigar box and figured something out.  One really should measure each hole from the top...i.e., I wanted holes 2" apa…
