First, the Something New . . . .
We picked it out a few months ago. We'd been saving our pennies for awhile to buy it. But reports from Mr. Simple put the assembly being done around Christmas. I really hope that he is kidding.
And the Something Old . . .
Well, they aren't THAT old, but they aren't new. I had been searching for cubbies for months now. And wanting them for longer than that. I had been checking on Craiglist (as well as other things), but never expected to see cubbies listed there. Well, imagine my surprise! I e-mailed the seller, and crossed all my fingers, and I was the first person! We picked them up from someone who lives about 10 minutes away, and voila! I LOVE the cubbies! The kids love them too. The baskets are Pottery Barn baskets that I got years, and years ago. I will probably get two more eventually.
So it has been a banner week over here so far!
