We Traded!

I could provide a service she needed. She had an item I could use!
So we just traded! Have you ever done that?
Now I'm cracking myself did I get all these pictures in here that are just alike?
As soon as Mr. Romantic set it down in the foyer, little Miss Princess claimed it. "Mommy can I have it? I need this. I want it painted pink!" Ah, a child after my own heart.
But I love all of its imperfections. The wood underneath looks old, very very old and boy is it ever heavy. Its size defies its weight. I can see scrubby old green paint peeking through the white.
People are like that...treasures in spite of imperfections...
Have you ever traded for a treasure?
Have a great Saturday.
Love, Rachel

Oh, my! That looks wonderful! No wonder Little Miss Princess claimed it! I can hardly wait to hear how you end up using it!

Have a fun Saturday!

How delightful...the desk is adorable...I can see it in Miss Princess's room.
Too funny to have your traded taken right out of your possession.
Gotta love our Princess daughters. :-)

What a sweet desk! I know how it is with several photos of the same thing, LOL! I do it all the time! That is cool that you traded! I love doing stuff like that! :)

Sharon said...

That's awesome! I'm curious....what did she get in the trade? Did you sew for her? I love that old desk! I read that bartering is really coming back with the economic times.

Hugs, Sharon
