sunday afternoon

my favorite part of the week.


sitting out on my porch.

in the sunshine.

piles of mags to read.

cold drink with a straw.

flip flops on.

ella fitzgerald playing on my pandora station.

if you are wondering why i'm not using any caps, it's because my sad keyboard is not working right due to some water spillage. pardon me.


anyway. here's a squeeler for you. on the way to church this morning, i spied this dilapidated cabinet by the side of the road.

with a sign that said free. plus free delivery. helllllo!

you know i can't even fathom not taking it.

even if it is old. and falling apart. and the hubs is saying where are you going to put it, we don't have time to work on it, you are crazy, etc, etc.

remember, i'm the dreamer and he is the practical one.

oh, my.

i guess i won this time.

here is the front of it...

and here is the back...

a dear older couple just dropped it off. just for me. it's actually a cabinet to hang on a wall and it's upside down.

can't wait to see what i can do with it. or maybe it's just destined for the trash pile. we shall see.

junk by the side of the road, how do i love thee

let me count the ways.

1. you are old
2. you have chippy paint
3. you were lovingly built by hand
4. you are begging me to take you
5. and most important, you are FREE.



  1. No fair! The other girls have all the fun! Just promise me you won't pitch it if you get frustrated, ok??

  2. That looks like it would make a great mini bar!

  3. PS: I'm following! I love your blog, but it was The Message's, Psalm 36 that did it. :)

  4. I love it! What a fantastic find. Free with free delivery? Way to go!

  5. Can't wait to see how you give new life to this piece! You are quite ambitious!

  6. sounds like a scenario between me and my husband... except if he were with me, he'd win. :)
    cabinet looks awesome- I can't wait to see what you can do with it!!

  7. holla back! (although i don't particularly do "free stuff" on the side of the road, as you do). i need to send out a holla back!

  8. can't wait to see what you'll do w/it! :)

  9. holla back, (i love free stuff and free stuff by the side of the road is the BEST and delivered??? serious score)!!

  10. holla...what a wonderful word! and what a wonderful find! LOVE ANYTHING that is free, chippy, and has potential! we have got to catch up sometime...

  11. im still giggling about the way to church thing. you must be way more organized then i am on a sunday morn if you have time to stop for a free cabnet! love it!!! can't wait to see what happens to it.

  12. I just found your blog - so fun! I would've totally picked up that cabinet. Love it! I'll have to start posting pics. of my finds and how I repurpose them. You've inspired me, thanks!
