Happy Valentines Day to me. . .

I cant believe it’s been so long since I shared anything new. Spring came early this year. While I’m not complaining, I have a hard time staying inside. I take my coffee outside first thing in the morning and before I know it I’ve spent the better part of the day out in the flower beds.
I was rackin my brain tryin to decide what to do and then I realized I hadn’t shared this beauty. 
We’re getting ready to add a bathroom in the basement and I’ve been on the hunt for a piece like this that I can use for a vanity. I spotted it at one of my favorite antique malls, Marketplace 3301. There was no price tag on it and I later found out someone had it on hold so the tag was removed. That didn’t stop me ! . . . the gal that worked there said if it was still there Monday I could buy it. It WAS there Monday ! So I put it on lay-away. When my hubby came home for Valentines Day he asked me what he could get me for a gift.  I told him I already got it. When he found out it was on lay-away he went and picked it up !  I know, I’m so spoiled lucky!
It’s the perfect size for the space. I staged it with an antique ironstone basin just to give *the look* of a sink. The doors and drawers are going to give some much needed storage for linens, soaps and other bathroom thingy’s. I love that I didn’t have to do a thing to it, this is just how I found it.
We have some major remodeling plans in the works. . . kitchen update, removing a wall to open the dining room and living room, a new master bed/bath and a covered front porch. As well as some outdoor projects like painting the exterior, a new picket fence and potting shed.  I think I’m about to get really busy.
Thanks for taggin along even in my absence. I don’t have a lot of followers and I do appreciate each and every one of you. . . I need to figure out how to make it possible to pin from here, I’m working on it. . . but for now just spread the word. . .
Happy Spring All. . .
