Oh Happy Day!

I am so excited! I will finally get rid of the monstrosity that I have put up with for 4 years. It looks like shelves and pipe... But it fit our tv, and was cheap, so we used it until we could find something that looked better, fit our tv, and was still cheap. This was at a local thrift store, and I was so excited, it looked big enough. I wasn't sure, so I set up transportation just in case, and went back today in the hope that it was wide enough for the tv. YES! Mark and my friend's husband took their truck and got it for me this evening.

The color is close, but not an exact match to our other wood bookshelves. The top is flat so we can put the rabbit ears on top, camoflauge them a little bit.


I really like the detail work on the front. There used to be doors on top, but they are missing. That's fine, my kids would destroy it in seconds anyway.


I didn't get a whole lot done today, inside the house anyway. I did get some flowers at Walmart to brighten my patio. I got bright pink geraniums. And I mean bright pink. And a hanging basket of some pale orangy flower. I am sure Mark is not happy that I have good friends that are good gardeners and have me hooked on pretty flowers! I still have more perennials I would like to put out around my tree beds in the front, and roses I want out in the backyard. We'll see...

So tonight I will be folding umpteen batches of laundry, while watching a movie on the tv sitting in the beautiful new piece of wood in my living room!
