Joyful In Your Surroundings

I think I've mentioned before that my basement guest room is where I play with many of my thrift shop treasures. It's a work in progress and, truth be told, it probably won't ever be completely finished. If you were to pack your bags and stay for the night, you'd find the bed loaded with pillows covered in vintage cases. You'd have your pick of fancy hats to wear, and almost a week's worth of wool coats to choose from. There's even a few pieces of extra luggage :: just in case you need it. There's a new addition to this room now. Remember the Art Deco wardrobe I was telling you about (the one that was tapping me on the shoulder while I was buying the McCoy pottery last week)? I brought it home with me. I think it was meant to be. The price was right (practically free) and the vendor even delivered it.
Do you like it? I think it fits right in. It's showing it's age and has many blemishes, but I'm showing my age and have blemishes too. We're like two peas in a pod.
The hang space is lined with cedar :: perfect for storing wool, and there's room in the bottom for blankets and quilts. This little room is coming right along. It's not for everyone, I'm sure, but it brings me great joy and I think it's good for the soul to feel joyful in your surroundings. Don't you?
