There are so many immensely cute things around here. The
wife looks out the window Saturday and sees our adorable little beagle sunning herself on our own private Stonehendge we have in the back yard. This was just AFTER we had been at the Habitat for Humanity charity sale....Ithaca has a million people coming and going every season, with the 2 universities, and school starts this week, therefore a million awesome charity sales for new arrivals and people like us who are curious about finds....WELlllll, look at the adorable antique wooden school desk I got.....it is covered with graffitti...probably vintage 1930s - 1950s, right? (it was marked 20, but we got shelves for the closet AND the desk for 15, whatta bargain! As I loaded it into the car a family of four with little kids offered me 25 for the desk...and I was like "sorry, there is more nice stuff inside!" thinking "if they offered me 250...maybe...but I love this desk....")
I had desks like this in school. It is a beautiful full size, not child size, yet small to fit the corner next to THIS desk with the computer....I am always drawing on top of my laptop, and now I can swing my chair a few inches to the left, and voila! Always ready for drawing.....
adorable, also, if I may say, is the robot pot below, where he is swinging around a little blue car....it was all made on the pottery wheel, and came out warm from the kiln Saturday and was taken IMMEDIATELY to the exhibit in Cooperstown I told you about....
thanks for listening, have the awesome Monday!
