All my computer years, I had to ask someone else to process photos for me to put them on the computer. But now I'm on a "new" Mac (2001 model) and I have the cable that can plug the camera right in. So, as my very first picture post, I will introduce you to my latest find.

We moved into this home 17 years ago and it was a MAJOR fixer upper. Like beyond horrible. Over the years, we've done a lot of work and now it's getting to be time to do things again but now we don't have the money, so I'm trying to do things frugally somewhat. Well, DD and I went shopping today and I found the prettiest table and had to figure out where I'd use it if I was to get it. I decided where I wanted it, bought it (with 10% off because of the scratch on the top which doesn't matter much to me) and cleaned my den to put it in. Here's the before:

And here's the after:

MAN, that felt good!! It's so much prettier now! Of course, you don't see the laundry that I need to fold on the other side of the room..... LOL

Great score on the table, Ann! It truly looks beautiful in its new home. I know exactly how you felt when it all came together and the corner of your room transformed into a 'thang' of beauty!
