Remember how I told you that we have been stockpiling stuff for the new house? Just random stuff that we pick up as we see it.
Tim and I went back after he got out of work. Tim found a pile of corbels in a dark corner. While I was helping him, I found this little table tucked away in another dusty corner. I stopped with my armload to look. Tim passed behind me and said, "I saw that table too, and I like it." For $35, we got that too. These things are stored away to be pulled out for the new house.
It was unused. Brand new. I needed help loading it, and so I turned right around and fetched Tim. It was a hot day and we were working on a renovation and he was grumpy at the interruption. His complaints stopped as soon as he saw what I was excited about. We loaded it right up. It is heavily greased to avoid rust, and it is stored away for the new house.
Nah. We're not superstitious.
Aren't these the most beautiful tiles? I got them for 79 cents apiece on clearance and tucked them away. I'd forgotten all about them. I do have a good eye if I do say so myself.
