I hope that you are all out enjoying a beautiful day in sunshine and warm weather.
Me? Well….I’m enjoying a day of dreary weather – overcast and with a slight nip in the air. And no, that isn’t sarcasm. I really am enjoying it!
I spent my morning shuffling clothing around my house – putting away the winter stuff and taking out the summer stuff – thereby assuring that it will snow this week, because 1) Murphy’s Law and 2) that’s how my life works.
And now….for the real reason I’m posting this. The real two reasons, really.
First of all, if you could, please (pretty please) go vote for one of my recipes in the So Delicious recipe contest. I have absolutely NO chance of winning at all, but with a $500 Williams Sonoma gift certificate on the line, I would be kicking myself if I didn’t at least try.
Just click on the link and it will take you to the pinterest page. ”Likes” and repins each count. Thanks!!
This afternoon, I saw my a sign for a garage sale at my neighbor’s house. I have never met these neighbors, and it turns out, I never will. It was an older woman who reacently passed and her son is selling EVERYTHING. So really, it is more of an estate sale.
I got there before they really had anything priced and I saw….THAT UP THERE!!
Remember when I moved into my new house and I so wanted a stove and fridge set that looked like that??!?!
The only ones I could find were over $1000 EACH, and these? These authentic (and yes, really not at all energy efficient) fridge and oven combos….I got him down to $100 for BOTH.
I am still hemming and hawing about it because of a couple caveats.
- The fridge, as my dad pointed out, is not going to be “green” at all and will likely be hella expensive, energy-wise.
- The oven is set up for propane, not natural gas. But I think that is probably really easy to fix.
These are old photos of my kitchen (it is much more decorated and *ahem* lived in now), but in case you can’t remember what my kitchen looks like (what?!? Impossible!), how AWESOME would those look in here?!?!
Seriously. What am I waiting for?
This is silly. I should just go buy it.
