In fact this weekend I'll be getting into the art room to work on a project from an craft book I'm reviewing for their e-book tour! Watch for the review next week on May 29th!
In the mean time, here is another thrifted item. Found last Saturday while I was out jogging. On the last stretch home I happened upon a garage sale, and silly me knowing it's garage sale season, and yet I didn't have a penny on me. But I took a peek anyways and what a find!
This cute little play kitchen, sans accessories, FOR ONLY $1.00!!!!!
I mean... really? I had to blink a few times and ask just to make sure. And look inside the oven and cupboard!
I know Little badger is too little to really appreciate this just yet, but he does love spinning the little stove knobs. ^_^
I told them I lived near by but hadn't any money on me since I was out running and they offered to set it aside for me trusting that sweaty, out of breath me would be back. And oh did I come back, soon as I got home I grabbed my wallet, jumped in the car, and sped right back as fast as I could (following the speed limit of course).
Originally I had told myself that when it came time to have a play kitchen I was going to make it myself from up-cycling an old nightstand or TV stand but the project for sure would have cost at least $40 or so once you figure in garage sales (or craigslist/kijiji) to find the perfect piece, cost of paint and bits to make nobs and faucets and things. So, maybe someday when I have more kids and need a bigger play kitchen sure, but for now, for one dollar, this. . . is gold.
