Extreme Make-over

Wow, this is not a very good picture, (sorry) of a not so attractive desk. I bought it at my new favorite smelly store, teehee, for $60.00. I know, I paid too much. I was brave, and asked the girl at the desk if they would maybe take a bit off for me, I thought, it won't hurt to ask, right?! She said, "Why, whats wrong with it?" I replied, "well, nothing I guess", and she said, "well, they won't take anything off unless it's missing a piece" to which I said, "Well, the handle is broken, and laying on the floor?" to which she replied, " It has to be something major, like a leg or something!"...... ???? I'm still trying to process that one, a three legged desk, do you think they could sell a three legged desk at good will?? maybe ....I'm just sayin!
Sooooo, here it is, and tomorrow I will show you how I gave it an extreme make-over. Tune in, and let me know if you like it.

Now for our November thankful game, lets jump right in, won't you join us today?

Today I am grateful for:
- My new pretty desk
- Wood floors that don't show much, so I don't have to vacuum and mop much
- Sunshine in November
- That new Hallmark commercial with the little toddler boy who records "Merry Christmas" in his card to his Grandparents. I think it says Merry Christmas (not Happy Holidays, or Seasons Greetings) at least 12 times! Thank you Hallmark!
- Three children who enthusiastically tell me "Good morning", every day!
