We had a fun weekend. Let me say that it is "birthday week." Saturday I turned 45 and today my husband became 47. My day fell on the weekend and so my Darling asked what I wanted to do. What I really wanted to do was to go antiquing, junking, etc. but I did NOT want to spend a frustrating, hot day trying to figure out where to go, park, etc.
We began by going to a sweet lady's house to see this little gem which she had listed on Craig's List.
After we dropped off the chest, we headed to a flea market, but didn't find much there, either. Next we went to a Goodwill and another thrift shop. We did find a mirror for the half-bath at Goodwill. It was only $7. We had been looking the whole day. The house was built in the 90s and all the wood is light oak and the fixtures are shiny brass. The mirror hanging over the pedestal sink in the half bath was--um, how shall I say it? Not the right style, I guess! I should have taken a picture, but it is in the attic now, so maybe I will later. It was a very ornate, heavy, asian style. The mirror we found was just light oak and simple. The scale suits the spot better.
It was such a fun day, and it rained and stormed, too, so it wasn't so incredibly hot! I got to have exactly the day I wanted, but without all the hassles I feared. By the way, all of that browsing was right up my husband's alley, too. He loves the hunt, too!
My dearest wish for this week is that our stuff finally shows up and we can get it delivered and start the final part of this long move--getting unpacked and settled! We are still staying in the hotel and now that we have things in the house, it seems whatever I need is in the other location!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
