That Little Ole' Chair

If you've done any shopping for nursery furniture, you know just how pricey it can be! I wasn't interested in spending top dollar for any of the furniture I got, so I scoped out the all-amazing Craigslist. I found a beautiful crib and changer for very reasonable prices. [sigh of relief!] But, finding a rocker was a whole different ball game. I looked and looked and looked but all I came across were the faded, flowery types which wasn't exactly what I had in mind. There were a few glider rockers but those don't always work well for little people like me in a room the size I'm working with!

One day, at a yard sale - what WOULD we do without those?! - I came across this little rocking chair and it fit me PERFECTLY! I fell in love. And to sweeten the deal, it was only $8!!! Seriously.

It needed some TLC, for those stains around the bottom and arms. So I went to work with Carbona 2 in 1 Oxy-Powered Carpet Cleaner. It worked its magic and voila! I have me a rocker!!! How's THAT for frugal? (=

I'll be stopping by soon with more pictures. Have a blessed day!!

Mooovin' In!!!!

I can't belive it! I'm breaking down and starting a BLOG. You know, like everyone else is doing??? Ha I've thought about it alot but wasn't sure I have enough creative energy to keep it going. But with a baby on the way, there should never be a lack of things to post about, right? Ahem. That remains to be seen!

First off, this is a great way for me to share about my life as a farmer's wife! That's him in the picture and he is so very busy in the fields that I'm praying this baby will wait to come for another 2 weeks. I know, sounds crazy!!! But I feel amazing and would love to know that most of his fieldwork is done. But I'm letting it in God's hands; He has the day in mind and His timing is always perfect. [At least, I'm trying to belive that!]

Looking forward to sharing all about the nursery progress and hopefully some baby pics before long!!
