If you're anything like me, then you always wish you were dragging a trailer with you on road trips so you could really load up on all the great deals you find. Well, yesterday we just happened to be dragging a trailer, so I took full advantage. Jeremy doesn't have the passion for "junk" that I do, so when I find something I know could be tweaked into fabulousness he tends to roll his eyes. But, I'm also very cheap
I got the window for FREE from the lady who made the barn wood table. I just loved the little gold handles still attached to the front. I got the chandelier from a yard sale last week. I'm thinking I'll paint it, take the electric wires out of it, and put real candles on it. I may hang it over my tub in the new house. I'm sure Jeremy would love to come light 10 candles every time I want to take a bath (sarcasm intended). Not sure yet, but thought it was pretty.
This is my very favorite. An antique card catalog I found this morning for $15. It needs some work, but I fell in love with it. It even has the original screws still in it. My kids had no idea what I was talking about when I told them what it was. Then Jackson said, "It's the thing they had to use in the old days to find a book. Kind of like a computer but on little cards in drawers." How old am I?
So, we are now full blast into the weekend. I should have a house update sometime soon. Our front door is in, the bricks are being layed, and the sheet rock is being hung. I also bought most of the bathroom mirrors last week. I can't wait to get into this house and start making it a home!
