last weekend was the St. Vincent De Paul Yard sale
at St. Tom's church here on this rather tiny island
I managed to stumble across something I've been hoping to find for years and years
a beautiful old hutch (Welsh dresser)
priced for a song
I spied it tucked away in the back of the church shed
covered in dust bunnies and spider webs
I quickly handed over my money and started figuring out how to fit it into my car
It took me three trips around the corner to my house...
one trip to clean out the snorkeling gear, beach towels, sand pails and various other summer supplies
one trip to bring the bottom section, and the last trip to bring the top section
I managed to carry everything up to our flat on the second floor
while Joe was sleeping (he works the night shift)
I got it all cleaned up and set about making it look like it was part of the family
Isn't it funny how just one thing can inspire a creative streak in a person.
In order to fit the hutch in the kitchen I had to move the antique bureau that was there -
which meant I had to move the living room chair which was sitting
where the bureau would go.
This is what the bureau looks like in the living room.
I know that some may think it odd to have a bureau in the living room
but I like it
It's really a perfect spot for storing little blanket to toss over chilly shoulders in mid-winter
and crayons, water-colours, and construction paper
I am honored to be featured today
over at Share your cup Thursday
I love visiting there on Thursdays.
I always get such great ideas for decorating my home.
It's my goal this season to take more pictures indoors.
