Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Is it May Third????


Seriously, is it????

My calendar says it is - - - - but I'm having a little trouble believing it since I just saw S _ _ _ F _ _ _ _ _ flittering past my window!!!

I kid you not. Real genuine WHITE ones.

Well - - - we just won't look at that. We'll come inside where we can pretend that s _ _ _ _ _ has sprung more than a leak. I mean since most of the REST of you are in full fledged summer mode by now, this leaky s _ _ _ _ _ we're having 'round these here parts is becoming almost funny. So come on in and we'll look at some things that are the same no matter what season Wisconsin is throwing at us.

A few days ago I posted about a new chair which I brought home. I told you then that I also got several items which were large enough to require Fisherhubby, Friend Bill, and a truck to bring home.

Some of you - - - - all right, ONE of you, Erin, was kind enough to ask me to show them when they arrived. Erin, this showing is for YOU.

First I found this little desk/table. LOVE it. I have searched around on the main floor of our duplex for a place to put it so I can enjoy it every day. Alas and Alack, there isn't even a CORNER into which it will fit. So, for right now it is at the bottom of the FBC steps where I can just open the door at the top and peek down for a glimpse - - - - which I do multiple times per day.

Eventually the little desk is going into a bedroom area I am working to create down in the FBC.

Once I get that bedroom all set up for "bottom dwellers" this chair will be joining that cute little desk in that room.

Maybe - - - unless I keep moving the little desk to the bottom of the stairs so I can open the door to take a peek at it multiple times a day and ONLY put it in the bedroom WHEN we have bottom dweller guests!

Oh - - - don't think I won't.

If I'm going to make a bottom dwellers bedroom, there MUST be a bed! So far, I've got the headboard and footer, which were more of the items Fisherhubby and Friend Bill brought home on Saturday.

BTW - - - this is just free information - - - Friend Bill is one of our new Wisconsin buddies, and I can already see that it may be very dangerous to turn him loose with Fisherhubby, it's scary how alike they think. I'm just sayin' - - -

I liked the finials on this head board, and the price was very right - - - so it was a done deal.

It might be a good idea to start looking for a bed frame and mattress set now, ya think?

And last, but CERTAINLY not least, I found this large lovely cabinet. Fisherhubby and Friend Bill weren't too happy with me for wanting it down in the FBC - - - but with grunts, groans, and straining of muscle it was a fait accompli.

It isn't old, just made to look old. But I thought it would be the PERFECT place to house my village people. The Lutherans were just complaining too much about the stiff hike up the hill to get to church.

I already accomplished the relocation of both the country cousins AND the village people into the large cabinet. I'm rather pleased with the result. For right now, until I can get Fisherhubby to drill some holes for cords, both the cousins and the village people are without electricity, but I just close the glass door on their complaining and can ignore them that way.

And now, I am going to have the audacity to link this post to Communal Global.

I shudder to think what the Global Community will think of me and my sense of humor - - - but best get them exposed to it swiftly and suddenly rather than in small doses.


Enjoy your s _ _ _less day!

Hey left a follow-up reply on my blog but am so new to this blogging business, not sure if you will get it there. Anyway, thanks so much for your tips! I really appreciate it!

Tiffany Franklin said...

Beautiful wooden furniture and cute blog! Thanks for stopping by <3!

Unknown said...

I have a couple places that cute table would fit fine in!

The cabinet is adorable too. Can't wait to see the finished room.

It's the weather totally crazy? We've have 100 degree weather one day and 50 the next here in TX. The picture on my blog with the little girl in a tank top was taken in So CA where they always have nice weather.

Jennifer Bowen said...

What fabulous finds! That cabinet looks great. And I'm sure you'll find some use out of the little desk.

You have a great sense of humor! Thanks for sharing some laughter with us each week at Communal Global. =)
