Sidewalk Sunday

So it happened again....

Much sooner than expected. Are you ready for the story??

Sit back grab a cup of Jo, here we go...

My mother just recently returned home from vacationing in England and Paris.

Cool photo isn't it??

Well, Mom's a little worn out from the vacation.

Isn't it funny how you always seem to need a vacation after the vacation?? 

Anyhow, we currently share custody of her vacuum. Yes I consider it sharing even though I hide it at my house until she begs for me to bring it back. 

Don't judge me!! it's a really good vacuum.

Not sure at what point my life became all about the quality of a vacuum?!?!

Well she called and asked for it back. Normally I'd have the hubs just drive it over and drop it off but this time I thought "I should vaccum for her."  

So I loaded it up, headed over and took care of it. Well I'd like to think that because of this I was rewarded. You see when I went to leave her home the most adorable children's desk ever had just been placed at the curb of a nearby home. 

As soon as I backed out of the driveway I heard him call to me. He said "Aaaaangieeee, please take me home with you."

He was so cute and although he was dirty I saw his potential.  I'm also a sucker for a cute boy so how could I say no???

Here he is.....

Look at his cute little details....

I can't wait to start working on him. He'll have to wait just a little bit longer since i'm still finishing up
Mrs. Mirror that I brought home just the other day. If you happened to miss that post you can check her out here

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Lucky mom, both to have just vacationed in England and Paris AND to have her home vacuumed for her when she returned! :-) That desk is a great find - will be fun to see what you do with it.
