When we moved, I was happy with most everything furniture related in my house except a really old little cupboard we had brought with us. It wasn't intended for any prominent spot in the house actually but by virtue of being the only little cabinet type thing we had that would work in this little weird spot in the kitchen, it lived out in the open. At one point a dog chased a cat on top of it causing the entire thing to topple over, chipping the knobs, and causing a rather massive repair job with screws by THE MAN.
He was outside fixing it to avoid the drama of a wife who was seriously annoyed since it involved a plant that was tipped over and a rather large mess. Been looking for a replacement piece since.
At a craft fair before Christmas I spotted this very lovely little dry sink made by a local guy who owns a company called The Grumpy Bear. For the record, this dude somewhat resembles the name of his company but he was surrounded by twittering women so we'll give him a break.
I admired his furniture, took measurements and then brought it home via my cell phone and imagined it in place. THE MAN being very wise said of course, if you want it, get it. He was hoping to avoid any future repairs since there is only so much wood glue and screws can do to ward off a flying cat.
Since it was during the Christmas rush, I had a bit of a wait ahead of me.
I could have taken one he had premade but of course, I had to have something different than everyone else.
Here is a close up of the knobs I gave him to use in place of shaker pegs. I had bought them for my old cabinet, but really, they weren't going to help make it look much better since it was falling apart.
Also, there is a nice close up of the new candle sticks I found at Odd Ball's Emporium in Potsdam the other day. They match my new mirror from North Country Neighbor nicely! And yes, Better Homes and Garden candles from Walmart, thank you for spotting them.
See, told you I was going to introduce you to my new mirror! HI!!!
Oh funny! I crack myself up.
And, I knew it! You were going to ask if my binoculars are part of my decorations!!! See, THE MAN likes to grab them in a big hurry to see what big deer is eating his meadow on any given day so they must be out and handy. Not like candle sticks that really do no one any good unless of course the lights go out and you can't find a flashlight...but then there is also finding a match at the same time...
