It All Began With

See that dresser right there? The one right next to this post? The one that looks like it needs MAJOR help? Yeah that one. That's my very first dresser. My mom and dad purchased it from the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh when they got married. It used to have a mirror (no clue where that is) and once upon a time had casters (thank you very much, Howard Isner, for making those a distant memory) and it even used to have all of the original hardware.

I have bought, refinished, reused and sold more dressers than probably I can remember. But this one... my first... the one with the memories... I just can't seem to do anything with.

I think I'm afraid if I do, that the memories or something will disappear. I tried to just replace the hardware, but I obviously failed. And I can't even seem to get accessories right (and how appropriate this is to link to TDC's blog!!)

I will share some of my other treasures (including my favorite, "The Little Black Dresser That Could") soon. As soon as I finish painting the other lamp, redo the mirror, make some banana mocha chip muffins, do a load or two of laundry, set up a Facebook & Twitter account for my church...

Gosh I'm tired...
