a few weeks ago, i picked up a dining table for FREE from craigslist. if you live in/near a college town, you can count on great finds when the students are all moving! it's painted yellow - and will probably be repainted someday, but for now, it's perfect for holding my ironing board and cutting mat. thanks to my daddy, who went with me to load and haul it. and who made me laugh when his initial reaction to seeing it, said, "um, you're going to paint it, right?"
i have been thinking of reassigning it to our kitchen, though. i love the legs on it, and it's wider than the one we have now. it would need a leaf to extend it, and of course refinished. now, if i could have my pick of any dining tables, it would have to be this one. i don't have a formal dining room, but if i did, it would be that one. sigh.
ok, sorry for rambling! getting that table made me finish rearranging my craft stuff. i actually gave away an entire tub of yarn, which was hard for me to do and immediately made me think of ten projects i could have made with all that yarn. but i'm trying to realize that hoarding all these supplies actually makes me less productive. and it went to a sweet gal who works at our library, who is going to crochet afghans to raffle off and raise money for more books! win win, right?
i still have a lot of fabric to sort through. and lots of projects to finish! i'll be reviewing another product for csn stores soon - look for that as well! i'm thinking it will be this immersion blender - i've been wanting to try out this tomato soup recipe! take care, see you soon!
