The Most Beautiful Find Of All Time

I went to a flea market over the weekend, and had an amazing time.

Here is a sneak peak of my cell phone photos, until I get my office computer back (bought a new one and its being set up) and can download the photos off of my camera.

I bought this pedestal sink for $25.

I figured it was a pretty good deal at the time. Then I got home and found it online for $705.40.

Yeah, I did a major happy dance after that! I really liked the sink from the get go, but when I found out what a great deal I got, I was thrilled!

Now for the best find of the day!

This door is the most amazing, wonderful, beautiful thing I have bought in a really long time, maybe in my life.

This is going to be the pantry door in the old house!

There are some frames leaned up against the front of the door, but you can see part of the detail on the bottom half of the door.

I can't wait to tell you more about the lovely people who sold me the door and what I'm planning on doing with it!

I'll be back soon to tell you all about the other finds from the big day and tell you how the door traveled over two hours to get home and all that went into getting it here in one piece!

What's the best thing you've found at a garage sale, flea market, etc?

Have a lovely Monday!

Changes

I was cleaning today, which gave me time to think, and thinking always leads me here. The house is 'weekend messy', so decided to clean my floors, because The Nester says if your floors are clean the rest of the house feels clean too, even if it isn’t.  I have found that it is pretty good advice, so when everything else feels chaotic, I clean the floors. Of course for me, cleaning the floors also means picking up the toys, shoes, clothes, etc. so that I can even begin to vacuum, which naturally leads to a cleaner home as well.  While cleaning up I began to think about how this blog has evolved over the years, from a desire to write like The Nester about home, into what it is now.  I started writing this blog when I was dreaming of building a new home. Then plans changed, life took turns, and we ended up in a home so different than I expected and so perfect for our family. Somewhere along the way I realized that home wasn’t in the walls that went up or in the co

From My Christmas Wish List to Yours!

One of my favorite stores, West Elm, has now opened a special section called The Market. It specializes in kitchen, garden and personal care. Lets just say I am in love. If I had unlimited resources to spend in one store to do a total overhaul on my house, it would be West Elm, and now with the new Market, I am in lust too. So here are a few of my favorites. Check it out and maybe you'll get some great Christmas ideas for someone on your list. Or maybe my hubby will see this and get a great idea for me! Hint, hint! Enjoy! Incredibly large, amazing cutting board . I've seen these boards doubling as art hanging on the wall, then they take up no storage space! Cast iron Dutch oven . Great for one-pot meals. These glass jars come in varying sizes. I'm thinking they would work well for brown sugar with that rubber seal. I would definitely get plenty of use out of a cheese knife set during the holidays and all year round. Copper measuring spoons . Seriously? Fantastic

We're Buying A House!

Batten down the hatches and hold onto your hard hats, we are going to be fixing up an old farmhouse ! We made an offer on the old house and it was accepted! I cannot wrap my head around it or even begin to believe it yet, but it's real and this is actually happening! The legal paperwork is being drawn up and I will have sooooo much more to tell you all soon. For now though, I can only tell you how incredibly, undeniably, one hundred percent excited I am. (Terrified too, we're going to be loading a ninety year old building on a moving trailer and trekking it across the countryside, but more on that later!) Oh my, I just want to scream and tell you every little detail, but I will hold off until everything is settled and signed on the dotted line. I do want to give a little shout out to the owners, I'm pretty sure they might see this, and they know who they are. "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This has been my dream for a really long time, and I truly
