Excuse my slacker blogging the past few weeks. It has been a bit of a wild ride around here. Just normal everyday stuff like broken dryers and kids on Spring Break and mourning missed secret Neil Young shows…and then some actual heavy stuff with a youngin’ in my family that involved paramedics and lots of stress crying. Everybody is doing good now, so here I am.
I feel like nothing has gotten done around here in awhile, but that’s not entirely true. Proof:
Remember this load of a coffee table? Well, it got some better legs. They are a few inches shorter than the old ones and they are walnut. It’s looking real good, in case you don’t have eyes.This sweet little stool in our guest room got a reupholstering. My father-in-law found this at the swap meet for dollars and I’ve been on an upholsterer’s wait list forEVER. I finally got the call.Our dryer died and we got a new one. I have been waiting for appliances to break so I can replace them for the very superficial reason that they are pukey bisque colored instead of white. I didn’t factor in the time of choosing new ones (and always finding them backordered) while you go without the broken thing. A dryer is the easiest appliance to live without, but it still threw me off big time. The makeshift clothesline in our backyard was getting to be a full time job. We waffled on the top vs front load. Long story short, we ended up with a used but fairly new front load dryer that is awaiting it’s match.And, in the midst of aforementioned chaos, this beauty unexpectedly came into my life. I mentioned before how I was waiting for a smaller, Danishier desk to fall from the sky. That’s pretty much how this happened. A house up the street was having an estate sale that I almost didn’t go to. I’m so glad I did. Not only is this desk exactly what I was looking for at the right price, I bought it from an old friend of the original owner of our house. Now that you’ve had a glance at my sentimental side, take this in:I KNOW!!!!! xoxo
