My beautiful new bookshelf

It feels so good outside this morning. I can feel the 'Fall' in the air. My favorite season. I'm ready to start baking cakes and pies and all of those cookies that make my kitchen smell so yummy. It's been so hot here in Mississippi that the last thing I wanna do is heat up the kitchen!

Well...I thought I would show y'all the most beautiful gift that was given to me a few months ago. I can't believe that I haven't posted about it already. We recently had a remodel done to the store where I work and several things were being tossed out. I've had my eye on this bookshelf for years....I've been working there for 11 years. I always said if they ever decided to get rid of this that I wanted first dibs to buy it. When my manager told me that it was fixin' to go...she even called me on my off day to tell me....(such a sweetheart)....I just knew I had to move quickly before it got tossed out. I called Stevie at his work and pleaded for him to leave his work and go pick it up for me. I know he was probably thinking, "What are they giving her now....more 'stuff' for her to put in storage." Well...he might of thought it but he certainly didn't say it to me. :) He went right then and there and picked it up for me and delivered it with a smile. Here he is trying to get it under my arch in my courtyard. It looks so much bigger than it did in the store.
We ended up having to turn it sideways to get it inside.

Isn't it beautiful? I love all of the detail it has. I'm so excited. I haven't had time to do anything to it yet. My hand are just itching for that paintbrush.....and I have a three day week-end starting tomorrow!

Thank you Mrs. Julie for thinking of me and thank -you Stevie for getting it home to me. I love y'all.

I can certainly see why you wanted it so badly. I would've too. It's gorgeous LL. I can't wait to see it transformed! We are sanding and preparing around here as well. Been very busy with any free time we have. Make sure to put up your after photo's.

It is a pretty piece of furniture. I know it will look even better when you finish it and we get it in the house. We have several projects that we will get done this weekend. I am excited about us having a 3 day weekend off. Also, we will have to go fishing...woo hoo!! Your welcome and I love you too, Boo.

Have fun!
