Well, hard to believe ...but it's Friday come around again! Wow the weeks fly, but I don't mind so much. It means Justin's time in the land far, far away is also flying and that is what I want. He's 8.5 hours ahead of us, and I am constantly calculating that when I think of him and what he may be doing...
Today I thought I would link up with Cindy at My Romantic Home for her usual Show and Tell post parties on Fridays each week.
If you have something to show all us bloggy viewing sisters out here, and want to talk about it, jump over there and join in on the fun and sharing.
This is absolutely something that I would have included in my "Favorite Thrift Places to Shop" post when it came time to highlight Craig's List ads.
I have been doing a post every so often about my favorites.
Back around the third week of May I saw an ad that simply said "Kincaid Dining Room Hutch for free. (Huntersville)" I clicked on it out of pure curiosity. The picture was of a gorgeous China Cabinet. I told myself the ad was a typo - error- wrong- mistake.... No way was that beautiful piece of furniture (which I surely would have loved to get) ....FREE!
I called. She said,
I said, "I WANT IT!"
The catch???? Mega monstrous HEAVY. and she warned me... BRING SOME MUSCLE with you. Third story apartment!!! Do you still want it?
Oh my GOSH! The girl was not kidding. Justin is away...far away... Kurt was in Kansas City at the time.
That left Jonny and Kameron.
They told me I was trying to kill them both in one shot.
I felt very, very bad.
Alas..... we got it home in one piece, unbroken, and no hospital visits for my wonderful , outstanding, longsuffering, strong sons.
**That piece will never leave GROUND level again.**
I am extremely thankful for this FREEBIE. Love it. Not too formal, and has sparkley jeweled knobs, etched glass, and a Country French feel that goes with the Dining Room.
**AND STORAGE** RAH!
So Craig's List continues to be one of my TOP FAVORITES.
How about you? Have you ever gotten your man (or men) to do something for you and then really started feeling bad about the whole thing, it was so difficult????
Yikes! All is well that ends well....so it's said. :-)
Remembering our military and armed forces - praying for safety and Godspeed.
Hugs and Blessings to all passing through.
