Now that things are getting moved out and boxed up, I started accumulating a few NEW things. Because really, I need more crap to haul into my friend Laura's minivan and drive to Winchester.

Given the sheer amount of crap already owned, these treasures had to be real bargains.

Right?

Three bucks for apples in a basket.

I love this. Craig doesn't understand. He will want it hidden. I will want it in the kitchen. We'll see what happens.


TWO bucks for tree and house in the distance. On a giant gold background.
I could not love this more. Craig does understand this one and it will hang in the dining room without argument.



And best of all, $30 for awesome yarn storage - It's a barristers bookshelf.

I'll finally be able to SEE my yarn! However it will remain in its trunk till we settle in and construction ends. Yesterday, I had to spend a few hours over at the new digs, waiting for a delivery (see the box in the corner of the living room in the first pic? That's my big white FARMERS SINK!!) so, anyways, I got my desk-y corner set up. With temporary desk and temporary chair. In my lovely paneled office room.

And now it's ready -and just in case I want to put a skein or 2 in there on another day I'm waiting for something, I can.

Or I could just bring a cocktail and the knitting outside....

Total score on the bookcase. Those are always way over $100 when I see them at the thrift store.
Awesome.

I love garage sale/thrift store finds! My favorite little desk came with a $75 price tag and a horrible brown paint job. Some furniture stripper, elbow grease and stain later, it's a beautiful vintage piece. And when I asked my Dad to help me get it with his truck he shook his head at it.

so much fun! Good scores! I have one of those shelves and never knew what it was called! It's kinda awesome for yarn storage.

I REALLY like "Tree in the Distance. On Giant Gold Background"! And yeah for the storage. See the yarn and still protect it. Enough said.

Oooh, SCORE on the barrister bookcase! Those are so hard to find.

Suze said...

Dude, your yarn fits in THERE? I'd need...several of those!!

I love the house and tree picture! And the deck looks perfect for a little knitting-plus-cocktail...

Great idea to use the barrister bookcase for yarn! Love that!

Zonda said...

Cool score on your bookcase. I really like both pictures too. The deck looks like a great place to hang out! My last week here, movers been and gone...just a wee bit left...

Ruth said...

MAJOR score on the bookcase! My mother has the one that was in my grandfather's office, and I have always coveted it.

I've been thinking about ikea shelves for new yarn storage but that bookshelf is gorgeous. Totally jealous!

Seanna Lea said...

I'm with Suze. I'm not sure that the yarn I've bought in the last week would fit in there!

Renee said...

ooh, barristers bookshelf for $30 - LOVE!
I'd go for the cocktail and knitting outside for sure.
