TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS

HELLO AND HOW is everybody? I promised The Big Guy that I would STAY HOME over the weekend to have some things get done. I could've chosen to be HERE with Jodie for another summer escapade but I declined the invite. No regrets!

I couldn't believed what I've accomplished just on Saturday alone!

a) pulled weeds in circular herbal garden b) planted 'silver slipper' hydrangea c) did a two-week worth of laundry and d) read a juicy murder case

I also went shopping in my garage and finally made SOME decorating progress in the living room. Joe scored this yellow wicker (or rattan) dresser for FREE from Craiglist. And the two chairs are recent finds from the trash by moi. I just couldn't believed the variety of stuff that people throw away. And mind you, if we really go out there looking for these stuff? I could really make treasure hunting into a living if I wanted to, you know.


Eventually, I will paint this dresser white and might keep the chairs the way they are...

Oh wow, I love that dresser! What a find! I never see stuff like that thrown out. And I'm usually the one throwing good stuff out! I left a little photo on my blog today that I thought you would enjoy! It involves a plant of course.

Connie,

Good for you for having a productive weekend! That sense of accomplishment feels good, doesn't it? Love that hydrangea!

The dresser and chairs are great finds! May be you have a trash to treasure career ahead of you?

Have a great week, Chris

I love the dresser. I can't believe someone wanted to throw it away. I never seem to find the goodies others find. I must not be at the right place at the right time??
