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 :)
