GOOD DAY BLOGGERS****A NEW FIND
Well it sure has been a busy week around here, and i have alot of catching up on everyones blogs, Im sure i have missed so many great post. Our oldest daughter is leaving for college in September. So we spent a day away touring the college. Its a happy time for her and we are so proud of her, she isnt gone yet and im already missing her, its difficult realizing that she is not going to walk through that door at the end of the school day with her two younger sisters. However, i know its another phase in life, and with some adjustment we will fly with the changes. My husband threw his back out last weekend, so he has been home from work and i have been doing my best to keep things together around here. Do we have any New Yorkers? our second daughter left yesterday morning along with other school mates for New York City, a four day trip filled with so much excitement, broadway shows, visiting ground zero, working at a food bank, shopping and so many other great events. As much as you worry when they are not with you, im sure she is having the time of her life, and what a great opportunity! Of course i just happen to be browsing kijiji, anyone not familier its like Craigslist. Oh my gosh, i had seen a table and chairs some years back, (cant remember where) loved the round backs and design and would often talk about these chairs and telling my sister that i felt they would be perfect in this house but never to see them again. WELL...much to my surprise the other night i seen this add on the kijiji website, YES! the table and chairs i always liked, my sister called the woman right away (im not good at this kijijij thing) lol The woman explained she became a widow about 12 years ago and purchased the set about 8 years ago, her children are grown so it was just her using the set. She is now downsizing and that is her reason for selling..............8 years old!!! absolutely in excellent condition. Some may think dated, or passe after 8 years...NOT ME!!! i love them just like i did when i seen them years back, call me crazy but in my opinion because i love them the set is timeless. I know the way im talking, you likely would expect something out of this world, and i do realize to most they are not out of this world but it doesnt take much to thrill me, as you can see. In the pictures you will see that we had the expresso set which i felt just didnt fit this kitchen, and nothing loss as my niece is taking it for her unniverity appartment. By the way the additional cabinets have not been installed yet, still waiting for the guy to call. Hope all is doing well, have a good day!
