"Oldie but Goodie"!

This is STILL inspiring me!
The white piece on my left wall was an old 1970's headboard that I picked up for free in someone's front yard. I knew over 10 years ago that it would be perfect white to display my collection of chintware.However, I always knew it was incomplete without something under it!
When I saw Jennifer's living room I began to hunt for an old dresser to be used as a buffet. I looked and looked at garage sales and did not find the right one...until I remembered this one in my guest bedroom.
It was mine as a teenager, stuck in a spot for guests, though they NEVER unpack and use the drawers! YIPPEE I had intended to paint it but once I put it in the room, especially next to that chair, I LOVED it. It anchors the mostly white furniture in the room and I could not be more thrilled!
moral of the story: you may just have the piece you've been looking for

Stick With Me

I know I've been a little MIA lately! Please know that I think about my blogging friends all the time! Here is a little peak at what has been keeping me away~
  • I have taken on an 8 week, full time sub job. I am so grateful to be a "stay at home mom" the majority of the time!
  • I had a birthday. Check this out and you will see the best birthday celebration EVER! Thanks again ladies!
  • Since this guy turned 8, we are planning for this great event this weekend. Stop on by!
  • I finally finished this project. It is so good to have my dining room back!
  • Since I am working hard to be healthy I have a lot of thoughts running through my mind in that department. Check back here to see what they are.
