Emergency Blog Post

Ok, so it's not that much of an emergency.  But I'm so excited, I couldn't wait to share.  Remember how I've been saying I'm a thrift store/yard sale/rummage sale aholic?  Well.  I'm also addicted to online sales.  If you live anywhere near a base, there should be an online site: here, it's called Ramstein Yard Sales or Bookoo.  They're at most posts/bases.  [If you go to Google, type in the name of the base + bookoo, a site should pop up, i.e.: Ramstein bookoo, or Travis AFB bookoo, etc.]  I can browse this online yard sale group all day long, and usually end up finding some pretty cool pieces.  But today's find tops them all.  I have recently made a $30 addition to my living room/dining room, and am so in love with it, it's pathetic.  Here it is.

Sorry about the door being in the way.  Had to stand on the patio to get it all in the frame.  One day I'll move the dining room table out of the way to take a decent front picture.
Isn't it lovely?  The color, the style, the fact that it's solid wood so I can repaint whenever I want.  I'm so proud of myself :).

If you're curious about where in the house it sits, it's right behind the dining room table, in between the two book cases.  Adds the best pop of color in the world, and now I will be hunting for decor to wrap that color around to the couch.

Okay, that is all.  Hope you all are having a great weekend, and all you moms are enjoying your Mother's Day!
