An antique...

I have been meaning to post this for a few days now... but I have been super busy posting other things, doing homework, and keeping up with all the random jobs I have.. so here we go...

About a week or so ago, my Momma and Mamaw went antique shopping in Cullman, Alabama. They always find good stuff for good prices. But this trip would be the icing on the cake.... wow.

Momma called me as she was pulling into the yard and ask that RD come out and help Creeddaddy unload a prize she got me. I was thinking... what the world could this be?! 

Hmmm...

Well they unloaded and i fell in love!


There she is! (With all my stuff sitting on her but still...) A beauty! And then Momma told me the kicker....


She was in good condition... sure she has a few dents and dings... there is a place where a flat iron or curling iron has damaged the wood (the joys of my dad being a wood working man, he can fix that ASAP)... but i like it because now thats just something that adds character and something i dont have to mess up.... i always forget to turn my flat iron off... oops....

But still that is not the big news..... a cute little shelf to place things....

See the damage... not bad... adds character... i like it :)

Pardon the girl sitting on her bed taking a picture.. she wanted you to get the full picture....
The mirrors are all oringal and it even came with the key to the top drawer!!! Wow...

OK... the kicker.... IT WAS LESS THAT $65! 

They bought this, a piano bench that is in mint condition, and some random little nick-nacks for $65. Love it!

I am trying to talk Mom into letting me take it when I move out. haha. What kind of camera do you have by the way?

Seriously??? That is absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe they found that for that price. Tell Mrs. Susie to think of her long lost daughter in Auburn next time she sees something like this...
