Friday evening after we got home from our friends house, D just had to give me my birthday gift. He got me a newer smart phone, HTC Incredible, which I wasn't expecting at all but I'm excited for it. He also got me a couple of good smelling candles. Saturday I woke up, D made me pancakes for breakfast (isn't he sweet?!), and then I decided to go downtown to the local antique store. In the 1.25 years that we've lived here, I haven't been able to go in there. They have really odd hours, so I never works out. Saturday morning I had the chance, and I took it. They had a lot of stuff, but only 1 thing caught my eye...an antique Washboard! I've been wanting one forever, but most of the time they are way too expensive. This one was only $8.50, which sat right next to one that was $15.50 (Happy Birthday to Me!). I just had to get it!
2 weekends ago when Ash and I went. However, I decided not to get it. All last week I wished I would've got it; well because she is awesome, Ashley got it for me for my birthday!! It was only $10, and I can already vision how I want to redo it!! So hopefully I won't wait so long to spruce these 2 pieces up.
It's funny, today I found a picture of an old washboard sitting with an older chair...love it! I took my picture before seeing this, coincidence?! The reverse side of my washboard is identical to the one below.
