You have not because you ask not?

This Christmas, my dear Auntie C gave us some little gifts (even though we technically weren't supposed to exchange, but she got out on a technicality--she planned and bought before the rule was made-- and the fact that she's the oldest sib!). In the box, which was labeled from Santa, I found things that only someone who reads my blog religiously would know about. For instance, there was a book about how to decorate children's birthday cakes. There was also 2 new bottles of Magic Shell, and the kids each got their own Christmas hot chocolate mugs (since we only have 2), complete with a stash of hot cocoa and lots of marshmallows. Hmmmm...Santa reads my blog! It was a fun surprise and treat.

We were all pretty impressed and amused. Trent said I need to start mentioning my desire and need for some more expensive things, like a minivan! And although I don't plan to cash in on my family reader's generosity, it did give me an idea!

This is really only for anyone who reads in Oregon/Washington, but I am in big need of a new dresser. Actually, just a dresser. I look on craig's list regularly, but they are either too small, too old and ugly or too expensive. Does it sound contradictory to say now that I'm not too picky? :) Anyway, I thought I would just throw that out there in case anyone reading has or knows of anyone ELSE who has a dresser they are willing to part with for little or no money. I have a dresser with 4 drawers but only 2 work and it's quite frustrating. So, who knows? Maybe Santa works year round. ;)

Oh I wish I would have know before we moved up here! We up and sold all of our dressers and we had like 3! Sorry!!! If I come across any, I'll let you know. Is there something you are trying to stay away from, such as oak or something?

I can't believe Santa reads your blogs! Santa doesn't read my blogs so I'm a bit jealous...did you read that St. Nick? hint hint:)

Don't have the dresser but love what you've done with the blog page. It's perfect. Seems more like you. Don't know why, just does.

ooh, good furniture is so hard to find. and since the dresser will likely stay with you for a long time, you kind of have to make a personal connection with it. i'm hoping that you make a love connection with the piece.

I don't have any furniture for you - but I echo Celeste's comment about the new look of your blog.

Love it!

One other thing on the furniture. I don't know if you have a Goodwill near you - but we've scored some awesome furniture there over the years. I LOVE that place!

I scored two really great dressers last summer at garage sales--great, in the sense that they are structurally sound! :) I just repainted them and replaced the old knobs with cute ones! I'll keep my eyes peeled for you!
