Tax Return Buys

My husband and I received our tax return a couple of weeks ago…and after paying all of our bills (he’s unemployed, so it’s been paycheck to paycheck lately) and putting some into the savings account, I decided we could each buy something. Last weekend after church we headed to one of the local antique malls and we both found something…actually, I found two somethings! LOL!

On Monday my husband went back and negotiated lower prices and bought himself a funny cast iron bottle opener (ummm…let’s just say he named “her” Pamela ~ just picture Ralphie stroking his dad’s Leg Lamp…only Pamela is from head to 5″ stilettos!). And one of my two picks ~ which I will show a picture of!

A hand-made wooden cupboard with hand-forged hinges.

And then yesterday, while carrying in some groceries, I saw my second pick sitting in the sunroom! I skipped up the walk-way! A wooden table with an enamel metal top! He went back and got me the table!!! The paint isn’t my favorite…but it does match the tile in the kitchen…also not my favorite…but when it warms up a bit I’m going to buy some sage green paint.

Here’s my new table ~

As you can see…it matches the tile in my wee kitchen. Don’t mind the dirty dishes.
