Another Cubby Find!

Has this ever happened to you......You are searching for a particular something....a book, piece of furniture,a toy, whatever. Your search has lasted months~ years even until one day~out of the clear blue.....BANG!! There IT IS! Now it doesn't stop there.....after finding your long lost treasure after ALL this time......the very next week you find another one?
How does that happen?
I remember looking for a Debbie Macomber book "16 Lighthouse Road" to complete the Cedar Cove series I had. Couldn't start reading without this one because it was the first in the series. I looked high and low for this book at every thrift store, flea market, book sale, garage sale YOU NAME IT!
Why was this sooooo hard to find? It isn't like it was a long lost relic or something. I could have easily purchased it from ebay or Amazon but I think I was enjoying the challenge. Took me 14 months til one day at Goodwill there is was...and there continues to be a copy practically every time I go from that day on.It's been like that with cubbies lately too! Let's face it....Cubbies are cool (go back a few posts and you'll see what I mean). This one is a doozie! Just look at her...100 slots in old distressed black paint! I have been a lucky junker lately to gets my mitts on these. I had looked for YEARS for these and had no luck...now look...two in the last month!
Right place~ right time I s'pose! What ever it is ...yee haw!
The other cubby I had posted about recently sold within a week of putting it in my booth at the Sleepy Poet. That"s were I took this one today.
So they say things come it three's?
I'm already excited to see the next one!
(keeping my fingers crossed!!)

That's a great cubby! I found one recently but no idea where I would put in it my house and it wasn't cheap, but I really wanted it! Maybe someday I'll get one. Can't wait to see what you find next!

I give up, I am looking for a cubby of my own, If I don't find one soon I will just have my wood guy just build me one and i will age it till it is old enough to place in my home.

You have a piece to love!

Happy New Year

Cubbies are the best, there are so many ways you can decorate with them!

Most of the time when I'm looking for something for a long time and I find it, it cost to much but I buy is anyway! Then in a few days I find something similar for about 1/3 of the price I paid for the first one!

Have a Happy New Year!
