Oh, I loved all of your comments on yesterday’s post. I found myself smiling as I was reading the stories about treasured items with dings and dents. I had planned on writing a lot more about how it applies to the way we view ourselves and aging and all sorts of things, but it felt right to leave the post where it was. And we were all on the same page. It was a pretty sweet thing.
Anyway, I was planning on taking pictures of the dresser I painted for my mom’s room last week, but the roads in her community weren’t plowed yesterday, so I couldn’t get there to take pictures. That will have to wait for another post…
I scrolled through my pictures to see what I could write about and, as I was scrolling, I kept stopping and opening pictures of cupboards. There are certain pieces of furniture that I am drawn to and primitive cupboards are definitely near the top of my list. You can see that clearly in what I pin on Pinterest and, if you ever went shopping with me, you would see me pet just about every old primitive cupboard I pass by. Especially ones with faded pine boards or perfectly aged paint. And bead board is always a bonus.
I like that they are utilitarian and can be an instant focal-point in a room.
…and they can be filled with a collection of ironstone.
And, since it was such a monumental storm, I just had to share a few pictures of the snow.
Yes, that’s my minivan under all of that snow!
It’s hard to tell exactly how much snow we had, because the drifting was so crazy, but I think we got around 30″. We had a perfect sunny day to dig out yesterday, so our area bounced back pretty quickly.
We really enjoyed being socked in for a couple of days as we lounged around and watched the snow accumulate. The timing was a bit unfortunate, though, because I have a retailer refresher training scheduled for Monday and Tuesday! About 3/4 of the attendees weren’t able to make it for obvious reasons, so we’ll just have a small low-key group and we’ll reschedule for another time.
