My husband loves me!!

While we were out driving around today, we came upon this door on someone's curb. I about freaked out. My sweet husband turned around so I could look at it. He didn't think we could fit it in our car with Fisher{my mom took the other two-thanks Mom!!}. I just grabbed some shutters and cried on the inside. When we got back home after about an hour or so and lots of talking about how wonderful that door was{on my part ;)}, my husband left to go back and get it. Yay!! Unfortunately, it doesn't fit any of our doors, but I will find a home for it. Maybe a mail center with some chicken wire in the window panes, and maybe a basket mounted under the glass part?? I will certainly post about the transformation. Just don't hold your breath!! Hahaha!!

And today at my neighbors yard sale my lovely pal Phil gave me 2 free antique radio cabinets. I have some plans for those babies.

Did I mention I love free stuff? ;)

Can't wait to see final reveal.

fun! how nice of Cory to get it for you too!! I think there are so many possibilities for that door!

I'm not sure if Christy emailed you back,but J's partner didn't sign up through me, so I'm just not sure what to tell you. Sorry. I'm not sure why some people are having trouble communicating!
