|The oak tree from the kitchen.|
I do put some in a vase, but it will only release its scent in a cold room.
The raindrops are twinkling in the morning light.
And the tuis and bellbirds have started their late winter song contests.
I love living here...
The big Lions' garage sale was on recently, and my hubby and I scored some really good stuff! A near new steam-iron (his idea), another alarm clock (mine's broken), a much newer dishwasher ($10), some vintage fabrics for me and a radio tuner for him.
Then the auction started for the nice big things, so we went over to have a look: always entertaining if there is a good auctioneer full of quick jokes.
We wanted to bid on a t.v.cabinet with storage, well no problem: ours for $45.
Up came the 2 black leather recliner chairs with footstool. We had already sat in them, but hadn't discussed them. We looked at each other; ok we'll go up to $100...
People stopped bidding at $70. Fantastic!
We already had a brown one similar, but these black chairs matched with the black leather couches. And one of our good friends is smitten with the brown chair, (he runs in and hogs it!), so he took that of our hands quite happily.
What a spiffy living-room!
We love to re-use, and all the money goes to local charities. Everyone happy!
|Dana, my fire-cat.|
She gets really close, her whiskers just about frizzle up!
I usually look after the fire, and I always feel she is checking up on my job.
He is the boss-cat, and always manages to keep De-ja-vu just under control.
He's a good boy!
|De-ja-vu, are you sure you're comfortable?|
Lovely bargains and Winter is a joy, cheers Marie
Winter is a joy, if you have a warm house of course. It makes you appreciate warm weather so much more, too. :)
