Old Dresser, New Dresser

So, we have this old dresser. I am sure you all have a piece of furniture like this. Travels well, never fails. From your bedroom, to your dorm room, to your apartment, to your house.... Maybe its a chair, a bookshelf or a desk. Ours is a dresser. It's only been "ours" since the apartment stage of our life, before that, it was my husbands. It has more than served its purpose in all of the roles it has filled; clothing storage, toy storage, craft … [Read more...]

My accent color is going to be yellow, and my very nice … [Read more...]
