When deciding what to write, I thought about what she usually posts here, and my thoughts went immediately to my first (no wait--family first) second third fourth love, the piece of furniture in my kitchen. It's a newish addition to our kitchen, and I am IN LOVE. Coincidentally, there is a fun story behind my acquisition of it: My mother has been in real estate for over 20 years. She has moved up the food chain through years of top-sales, and is now the real estate manager of an office. The mortgage broker that works in her office had a rental home on the beach here in Connecticut (where I live) but she was selling it. The furniture in the house was beautiful, and I had my eye on this piece for a while. When I heard she was looking to liquidate everything in the house, I jumped on it! She offered it to me for $100 and I took it quicker than you can blink. It turned out her husband was moving some stuff to storage, so she even offered to bring it to my house for me in the back of the U-Haul, so I got delivery too :)
It fit like it was made for my kitchen. Previous to this we had what I lovingly referred to as the "Ugly Buffet" in it's place. Yes it was handed down from my great-Grandmother, Yes it was 1920's mahogany, but it had been treated badly by family that owned it before me, and it was U.g.l.y.
So that’s all for now--I hope I entertained you as much as Rachelle usually entertains me!!!
