Yea, that's just Creepy.

So this estate sale thing generally works in our favor. We've gotten some really "good stuff" (that is an original Sue term).
Quite a few pieces of furniture, some lamps and other decor items, etc.

This one is Matt's absolute favorite:

Of course, sitting atop Matt's other favorite piece...the late 1800s roll top desk, with a drawer locking system that we still haven't figured out.

I'm not completely convinced yet. It looks creepy to at any moment the giant Egg lamp will hatch an alien to suck out our brains. Matt will be safe, of course, because he only has good thoughts about aliens, since they can read our minds and all.

One Down??

One room down about 15 to go.
Our 2nd living room is an office. Now that Matt has found the perfect roll top desk (thank you Bernice Denton Estate Sales) and we spent way too much money at Target in one trip.

We've got this to show for it:

Of course our definition of "Done," may be quite a bit different from yours.

The Kitchen

So we needed a kitchen. We needed it cheap. We needed it fast.
We got it.

Yes, that IS the debauchery fridge in our kitchen. Why yes, it was half filled with condiments so that real food wouldn't really fit.

As you can see, the kitchen is small. The dishwasher is across from the fridge and when open you're trapped in front of the sink...putting away the dishes in the huge built-in cabinet that you can't see here is really fun.

The picture above was all before the new fridge.

Enter singing Angels and heavenly light from above.

She's a monster and I love her. She's big and beautiful and white and CLEAN. And we can store much, much more than condiments now.
We thought the kitchen was small before. Ha.
