The big score!

I walked down to a nearby Family Dollar this past weekend, impressed by the great buys I had seen other bloggers show off on their blogs.  Well, I scored big time.

I found:  A three-pack of narrow bins (along these lines) to use for drawer organizers at just $1.75; metal lanterns for just $3.60 each (not bad at all when you think about the price of similar metal lanterns the same size from Pottery Barn at $29); and a large air-tight mason style jar too, for just $5.00 (like this one but larger).  For $13.95 I got what would cost at least $55 elsewhere.  I'd call that scoring big time!

The Pink Chair

A house that does not have one worn, comfy chair in it is soulless.

- May Sarton

I have this big pink chair.  A faded fuschia chair.  I have had it since my junior year of high school.  I have brought it everywhere post-college I have moved.  I keep it because it is comfortable and because if I am blessed with a child one day I would like to rock my child(ren) in it.  It matches nothing, but I can't imagine it anything other than faded fuschia, so it remains.  I bought a throw to cover it, said to be red, but it looks no more red to me than the chair.

A new home.

One of the big changes during my blog sabbatical was an unfortunately necessary move back to St. Louis.  My unemployment situation had gone on too long, so I returned to search for work here.  I found a job quickly and found a new space to live.

Here are some photos of my new home:

As more is done with my home and a few projects are completed more photos will be shared.  The crafting is put on hold until I find a storage solution that makes supplies accessible.
