|Possibly the best purchase I have made in my life!
This lovely Universal stove was bought off of Craigslist. It cost more to get it home than it did to buy it. It isn't perfect, the oven door doesn't want to stay shut tight, but I love it all the same.
|Nothing says grownup dining set like squirrels!
The seats on my grandparent's dining room chairs have seen better days. Henry started picking at the plastic coverings before he could even walk. When Sofi Sue came along she happily helped to peel away the plastic and as the dining room was our only eating area in the old house plenty of food ended up on the fabric underneath. Now I am amazed that anyone is willing to sit on those chairs when we have company over! So I bought this lovely laminated fabric from Etsy and will hopefully have time to recover the chairs soon.
This rug from Overstock.com was very affordable and works perfectly to keep my feet warm when I step out of bed in the mornings. We almost didn't buy it as it is far from a necessity, but I'm so glad we did.
|It looks a little bit like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree at the moment.
It doesn't look like much right now, but I've been longing for this little 3 in 1 espaliered apple tree since I moved in almost a year and a half ago. Each level will produce a different type of apple, so we will have Akane, Honey Crisp, and Chehalis. I've never even heard of two of those, but I'm sure they'll be delightful!
Yay for occasionally buying stuff!
