looky looky




Looky what I bought...I have been dreaming of a laptop for about a year...and finally got my pennies together and bought one...I love it! I am on the go so much with Addi...I will be able to blog from her house and the playground! and it will be really handy when my Mom is going through surgery and rehab. On my way to my Mom's on Thurs. I saw a garage sale sign! the first one this season...yay! I had to stop, and boy am I glad I did. I found this sweet side chair for 25.00! It is old and had just been recovered in a black linen fabric! I stuck it in my dinning room in the corner by my mantel for now...very comfy! I looks ok with my black harvest table and bench but it is a little crowed in there,I might have to move to the spare room...Enjoy your weekend!

I've been wanting a laptop, too. Hopefully...someday!

Your home always looks so cozy and inviting. What a great deal on the chair.

Wow! Love your dining room! I too am looking forward to spring garage/rummage sales. We drove by a couple of signs today down in Mankato but we were too busy to stop and lacked room anyway. It made me feel happy just to see the signs. Glad you had luck-your chair is great!

I have wanted a laptop now for some time too. I am sure it will be great to have it. We have wireless but a big old computer so it does me no good at all. :) I love the new chair you found and WOW! what a bargain it was.

I am thinking both of you and your mother today as it is Monday already here in Europe. Hope all goes smoothly and quickly for her today.

Hugs ~

What fun it is to hunt out antiques and collectibles. Here in France I love to find antique linen and lace.

Oh my gosh!!!! The CHAIR!! You are the best shopper I ever did see, Mrs. Tattered Nest.

You lucky girl. Love the laptop. I want one. I can think of nothing better than blogging while watching TV while drinking a sugar free vanilla latte.

Now I want a latte :)
