A couple of weeks ago I moved my office furniture around. Because of how the ceiling is in my office, which I can't even explain because it's kinda vaulted and kinda not, there isn't much wall space available. So I moved my desk in front of one big wall space. Much better, riiiight?
Well, actually, kinda wrong. I had an empty space between my dry erase calendar/bulletin board and the window. I knew exactly what I wanted. In my head. I wanted something small but with shelves. But not too small so I could actually fit stuff in it. I wanted it to be antique looking or maybe country chic. I knew that when I saw it, I would just know.
And oh thank you baby Jesus for Goodwill. I walked in went straight to the furniture section, and there it was, just so perfect. It was as if I was running in slow motion in a wheat field toward it and we'd live happily ever after! Seriously, that's what I felt when I saw it. So anyway I looked at the price tag and I quickly ran over to the first Goodwill associate I could find and told her, " I want to buy this shelf thing but I don't want anyone else to buy it." Of course I said it with a smile, so I didn't look so crazy. I'm sure I looked crazy. You see, at Goodwill, you gotta get their first or someone will get their hands on what ever it is you want. And I didn't want anyone to put their hands on my shelf.
And at $19.99 it was just so perfect.
Now, anyone that knows me knows that I absolutely love Goodwill. Seriously, it's cheap and it's a good cause. Helping others while helping yourself, to their merchandise, of course. It's like good karma.
Happy weekend :)
