Found It!

I found the remaining knob for the cabinet. I put it in an Ikea box on the bookshelf that was supposed to be "extra hardware" such as screws, shelf holdy-upper doodads, and other random crap. Sounds logical right? Yup. 'Cept I forgot to label the box and I have a zillion and two black boxes from Ikea, so I couldn't figure out which box it was. Plus, I had no idea that I was actually organized enough to have put it in the box, so I didn't even look in the boxes. I searched all my purses. And coat pockets (even though I bought it in June.)

Mister works for the water company and he goes to all those big round monstrosities and checks the gauges, levels, radio transmissions, etc. Occasionally he finds random cool stuff in said areas. Who would throw a cherub into a fenced off industrial area? Weird. He lived in a drawer in the kitchen for about 6 months, 'cause I had no idea what to do with him. Mister even admitted (after I put him up there) that he wasn't sure what I was going to do with it and was wondering why he even brought it home. So I want to fix him up a little, the green "patina" doesn't do anything for me. What color should he be? Nothing crazy. I thought about white and Mister's all "You can't just paint everything in the house white, you know." Actually I can, but he is not into it and he brought this guy home, so no white. ORB? I have no idea. Anybody else?

Found these at Homegoods and TJ Maxx. I think they were all under $15.00. Love them! Especially since I plan on using them to put treats in for our Halloween party ala Frog Prince Paperie.

I love finding random, useful things! Good spot for "it".

Sure everything could be white, kind of boring, but it could be. I vote for ORB. I LOVE it. Love your scores too!

I'm so glad you found it. I always do that. I put it somewhere so I know I wont' forget it. Then, I promptly forget it.
