Today we went "junk shopping" at Carousel Consignments downtown. It's a fun place full of collectibles, antiques, stuff/junk. I bought a nice coffee table there a few years ago & today I was lucky to find a nice desk. I didn't *need* it but I like the look and the extra storage in it so I swapped out my "new" one for this old one. (I kept the hutch from the other desk & it works fine!) Damon's learning not to look at me funny when I find old furniture because he usually likes it once it's in the house! I also found an amber vase for the living room. I wanted a few accessories to put up on my ledge for a little more interest. The finials I picked up at Hobby Lobby & all three look nice together up there.

We bought a new mattress & Damon brought it home last night but it's very firm. Too firm. It's a beautiful handmade bed - a sample so one of a kind- but it's not what we want. Our other one is only 1 yr old but it's very plush, too plush if you can believe it. Good thing Damon knows people at Simmons (since he used to work there) so he's going to exchange it in the morning. Hope we can get a happy medium! (These beds available at employee discounts are get-what-you-get. You really don't get to choose one, just firm/plush, pillowtop/no pillowtop, etc. so that's why we're in the situation. Damon was able to use an ex-coworkers discount-they get 3/yr. so he allowed us to use one of his-with a little extra incentive.)these boots from Famous Footwear on Saturday & they just arrived. Quick! Famous Footwear is famous for never having my size but they do ship from the warehouse with no additional charge. Of course they're too big. What a pain. I do like the boots though. I'd like a cute fluffy suede pair or something but remember I actually have to outside in the snow everyday with the kids! I thought these were nice looking & practical. Time to get back at the list!
