My Friday included stripping the bed, washing the sheets, ironing the pillow cases (yes I still iron them), dust mopping, scouring sinks, vacuuming, mowing grass and answering emails.
So I thought I deserved a much needed break. I drove about 9 miles to a rummage sale.
There I found what I first thought was a Joe and Alice Dudenhoeffer hand made split oak basket. I quickly grabbed it up. With only a $9.00 price tag, I couldn't go wrong. I also found an old cake decorator/cookie press for just $3.00. For another $1.00 I found two books and an adorable fall pin.
Late afternoon I was emailing someone who had an oak wardrobe on cragislist. During dinner he returned my emails with the pictures that I had requested of the inside. BT and I decided to road trip the 35 miles to look at it. After a quick phone call for directions, we hooked up the trailer and took off.
We found the office where the wardrobe was located in Columbia MO. There BT and I assessed the thing inside and out. We talked a bit and decided to make an offer. ACCEPTED! I will try to get you all a picture tomorrow. 4 wardrobes and counting . . .
Back at home we started looking at the basket I had bought. After comparing to others that we have of Dudenhoeffer's, we decided the branding on the inside matches our oak backpack made by Roger & Betty Curry of Salem Missouri.
Have a great weekend!
