I had been toying with the idea of a desk space for quite some time now, way back really. The kids have their computer desk. Meanwhile I keep wrapping my etsy sales and writing notes on top of the washer and dryer. Lately the idea came back to me and I started a board on pinterest(pinterest is fun isn't it??) anyways the back to the board I titled it:
I need my own desk, in red italics underlined and bold print because this time I really wanted a desk.
I started searching my local thrift shops and nothing really caught my eye. Really nothing. Plus I didn't want to spend 20 dollars on a desk. Last week, we went to our tax preparer and in her office she had a cute desk as soon as I saw it I fell in love with it. She said she bought it for $40 and would sell it for $40. My husband gave me the a $20 dollar bill and said if I liked it I should get it. So I put in the other 20 and the desk is now mine.
Initially I had envision a white desk, and I would have painted it but I love the color of this one. It's missing a knob, but who cares, not me. It's the perfect size. I paid way way more that I really wanted too, but I am not good at negotiating. I could have said I give you 20 for it. But that is just totally not me I am not good at that. I liked it and I bought it. Now I have to hunt for a chair and personalize it :)
Another thing that made me happy last week is my niece Ailani. Finally, finally somebody looks like might follow my footsteps. She was in my house last week as I was going to drive to San Diego with the kids to visit my mom. She came up to me and asked if I could teach her how to crochet. What?? She is asking me??? I tried teaching my sister 20 some years ago, my stepdaughter Valeria 10 years ago, my dear Sophie some years ago and Ailani comes to me asking! Delighted I was. I taught her how to finger crochet in a quick moment and she started doing basic chains. She asked for more yarn for the way "1 1/2 hours is a long ride she said."
Do you spy her crocheted necklace and her hairband?
I love this girl (Insert Happy dance here♫ ♪)
