Life is but a bowl of...




Well, you know. tee hee.
I just love cherries!! They were on sale when I went in the store and right up front when I walked in and I almost can never resist them when they are on sale!! lol. I love almost all fruits but these are amongst my favorites!

Mom and I went to some garage sales last weekend and had a lot of fun. I found a little old desk that is like what I have been wanting. I currently have a laptop, and have a cheap little desk meant for a desktop computer--NO storage!! Ugly!! Plain!! So... I have been wanting one that is cute and with drawers. The desk was in kinda rough shape but he only wanted $5.00. I saw that it was going to need more than just a paint job so I asked if he would take $4. He hesitantly said yes. I was pretty excited. Then... the next day, I found one at a garage sale that was smaller, (I live in a very tiny house) and in much better shape. It only needed paint and good to go! So, we stopped by the hardware store and got some paint and got busy. I also painted a night stand that my mom gave me. I have been wanting one of those for a while too. These are the finished products!
(By the way, the first desk I was going to get rid of but now I am going to use it in my scrappy room. It has more storage than the one I have in there now too. It is almost done and I will post pics.)

Yay!! I also came upon a bed frame for only $5.00! I was very happy for this because my mattresses have been on the floor since I moved in! I just love how the room is coming along. I am also re-painting my dresser. I forgot to take before photos though but I will post ones when it is done.

On a side note... with all this happening, I have been unfortunately been neglecting getting my scrappy room finished but that is on my list of things to at least work on today! lol

Enjoy your day!
