Weekends



My husband and I seem to be going to neighborhood garage sales whenever one is held on the weekends.  Around here in May and June, almost every weekend has one.  Sometimes the neighborhoods do it 'big' and have food vendors.  Every time we are out, I am reminded at how nice most people are and how lucky I am to live in a friendly area.

We saw the chifforobe and fell in love with it.  Do I need a chifforobe? nope.  Do I have a place to put a chifforobe?  nope.  So we bought it.  The piece is in excellent condition and yes, I've already replaced that ugly knob with a pretty metal one.


While contemplating on the purchase, I dreamed of placing all of my shawls, scarves, mitts, hats and cowls neatly inside and organized.  Originally my knits were stacked high up in the tiny hall closet.  That system was okay but this, well this is like a special place now!


I spent the better part of this morning hanging up my knits.  That makes this weekend one of the best, I thought about when I made a project and what was going on in my life at that time.  A little stroll down memory lane through knitting.

Now that I can clearly see all of my knits, I see some colors that are missing and that needs to be remedied.  I'm thinking of new projects perhaps in red and maybe some teals?


The very best part of purchasing this chifforobe is that the price was a mere $15!  Score :)

  1. That is an AMAZINGLY good bargain. It looks like the style of furniture that my grandparents had ....I'm thinking 1920s. It is beautiful and makes a perfect place to keep your woolies convenient for wearing.

  2. What a find! I love how you're using it for all of your handknits.
    And yes, time is sure flying. We can't believe a decade has passed already with Jellybean.

  3. Fifteen dollars for something so great that makes you happy? I think it's actually priceless! I never would have thought that a piece of furniture would inspire knitting projects, but I'm looking forward to seeing some teal shawls hanging there soon!

  15. What a bargin!!! I love pieces like this. I am currently "thinking" about working on our son's room when he goes away to the military... early I know but I'd really like to have a double bed in there for guests and a work space for my things...
    You have many beautiful shawls!

  16. What is so interesting is that i have had the word chiffarobe in my head for the last hour. !!! My mother in law used that term. She was from the south. I LOVE YOUR FIND. I was thinking about her and her ways because we transplanted a small ROse of Sharon from our home that was from HER yard and it is not surviving here. I wanted to think about her and find something for the yard that reminds us of her. She said chiffarobe, breakfront, fronch room, (not front room). She rode her bike and had a radio on the handle bars .
