my next project

in case you were curious, i am still lurking in the thrift store and goodwill at least once a week. i love looking thru all the old stuff and occasionally buying something. above is my latest purchase -- a china hutch. i'm guessing it is from the 70s but i could be completely wrong. it is not a high-end piece of furniture but i like the style of it and am looking forward to fixing it up a bit.

i had lunch with my mom on monday and then headed to her little barn to load up a few boxes of my misc. china and dishes i have stored there. it's been a few months since i packed it all up and honestly i'm not sure what all is in there. i thought i'd bring most of it home in anticipation of being able to display my collection in this new hutch. but, alas, after tugging, pushing, pulling, lifting and much grunting i had to give up. it seems that the barn door has settled in the ground and frozen in place. just another reason to yearn for an early spring!!

Well, that looks like a pretty decent find. I have to move the end of Feb from the home I've rented for 13 years....finally, after two years since my job ended, I have exhausted all my savings and cannot afford it on my retirement income. I have no idea where I'm going. Don't have first and last months rent for another place right now...will sell much of my furniture, put enough in storage for a small apartment, and see what comes up. This will be a year of change for me.
