i found a great book shelf for a great price. while out looking for garage sales we drove by a house that had 3 book shelves sitting out on their driveway, 2 were tall and looked like pre-fab pressed wood, but this guy, made of real wood, had a 15 dollar price tag on him. before i had fully taken in the greatness of the find, i told Ken "i'd give them 10 for it" just then someone came out of the house, it was Mr. Hodges, someone we knew from around town. Ken offered him 10, he checked with his brother in law who's shelf it was and the brother in law said he would take 10, he told us that it had been in his room when he was a little boy.
so we now have a solution to our busting book shelf problem. it needs to be cleaned up a little and maybe a coat of stain or paint.
also, my fabric for my kitchen curtains came today.
