So Sunday while I was trying to make sense of the wedding quilt Hubby was off at an auction. We did visit a garage sale before the auction that I did go to but the auction he went to on his own.
He wasn’t gone very long at all when he called and said he was coming home. I asked if it was a bad auction. He said it was okay and that he had purchased $44 worth of goodies. A person never knows what that means. Then he went on to explain that he bought a cabinet. He didn’t know if he should have or not…maybe I wanted it but maybe Kelli wanted it. Well I never know to think of a statement like that. He’s second guessing I can tell…so he comes home with this…
My initial thought…Kelli can have it. It’s kind of ugly….
Then he opened the doors and started apologizing. It was only $10. WHAT..$10. He said -ya…$10. He said- I thought I was going to get it for $5. They couldn’t get a second bid.-
Well now I wasn’t sure if Kelli should get it. If you’ve been reading the blog you might remember that she’s working on organizing a sewing room and this might be what she could use…but now I was thinking it’s too cute to give to Kelli.
We are guessing someone made it for the lady. It’s made out of cheap wood but it’s so cute…who cares..craftsmanship trumps cheap wood sometimes. I can just imaging how happy the lady had to have been to have someone make this for her.
See how the cute little pattern “drawer” pulls out.
Can you believe the Gingher Scissor came with it too??
All the little drawers are just darling.
The bottom shelves pull out too.
Then I realized I hadn’t said anything to Hubby. Then I praised him for his wise wisdom for bringing it home. I told him I loved it.
Then like a good mom I sent pictures and measurements to Kelli. I love it and will happily keep it but if it fits her hard to manage space I’ll hand it over to her.
Back upstairs I went to work on the wedding quilt…as I sewed I keep thinking-if Kelli doesn’t want the cabinet I could put it here but I’d have to move that there….I wonder if it would work..I wonder if it will fit in Kelli’s space?? It was a marvelous distraction.
So I’ll keep you posted…Maybe it will go to Kelli’s…Maybe it will go to mine. Either way I do think it will get new door pulls and new wheels…but my oh my..I love it!
