Craigslist Junkie

Soooo, I am trying to find a unique, masculine dresser for our baby boy, and in the process of scouting, I have become a Craigslist addict. It's soooooo addicting! There are some great deals on there, only you have to scoop them up IMMEDIATELY, or you'll lose 'em to some other Craigslist junkie. I have also figured out that you have to sound incredibly interested - or practically even commit to buying before you see the piece, or you'll miss your opportunity. Anyway, I am going to check out an antique bedroom set this evening, so wish me luck! Here are some of my recent Craigslist finds and scores. I know these are dreadful photos, but you get the idea. I'll bet I know where you're headed next! I'll make it easy for you: Click HERE!

French Bed : $1950 -- this one is still available, as far as I know. It's a little out of my price range at the moment. Would it be offensive to offer $150?? (wink, wink)

Guess how much I paid for this little desk...$25. It needs a little TLC, but overall, it's a great piece for the price. It currently holds art supplies in Kalia's playroom.

We bought this table last year for $40! It's another project we're attempting to tackle before the baby arrives. It will be beeeeautiful when it's done!

I'm absolutely kicking myself for passing up this armoire. It was advertised on Craigslist, but was being sold at an estate sale. We were first in line to see it on the last day of the sale, so it was 50% off, at $140. Randy and I took too long discussing it, and in the meantime, some lady declared her intentions to buy. Ugh!

I think this one was selling for $130, but it's too small, and too feminine for our baby on the way. It was still tempting!
Happy Craigslisting!

Cherry on Top

I would like to introduce you to my friend TJ from Any Given Moment. She has become a blogging friend, as well as an e-mail buddy, and she's pretty swell! Recently, she gave out some blog awards, and I am supposed to choose one from the three she received. I am going with the 'Cherry on Top' Award - basically because it's cute, and it involves cupcakes! I would like to pass it on to 5 deserving bloggers.

1. TJ at Any Given Moment (Right back at ya!)

2. Ms. Bright at The Bright Life (We attended the same high school and college, and I LOVE her blog!)

3. Christina at Full House (She definitely has a beautiful blog - with that 'little bit extra'.)

4. Such Pretty Things (This is one of my daily reads. I LOVE it.)

5. Rebekka at Dear Friend (Rebekka was my first college roommate, and I love keeping up through our blogs. She sells adorable artwork on Etsy, as a fundraiser for her upcoming adoption.)

Pass it on. Thanks for the cute award, TJ!
