I'm So Berkey & Gay!

You know how you go to the store for one thing and you end up with something else...well that is exactly what happened here. This piece caught my eye immediately. I knew as soon as I saw it, that it had possibilities.

The legs were sturdy, and the back did not have any flaws. The biggest flaw is at the bottom as you can see in this picture.

My intentions was to bring it home and paint it, but my husband liked it flawed exactly the way it was. He said that it gave this Berkey & Gay character.

This is the seal inside of the top drawer. I also noticed that the second drawer had a slightly different shade to it.

This is some of the damage at the bottom of this piece.

More damage at the bottom.

View of the whole piece.

It worked out well.
And I only paid $50.00
I think I got a little bargain out of this. Let me know if you know anything about Berkey & Gay furniture.
Be Frugal and Live Like a Queen!

Queen Of Hearts

Do you have your heart just hanging around on a string?
Do you tend to wear your heart on your sleeve?

Maybe it's easier to just hang your heart on a wall.

Do you find it safer to carry your heart in your hands?
Or on a chain around your wrist for all to see.
No matter how you display your heart, express it by showing someone how much you love them. February 14th is the day of love.
The month of February is also heart awareness month. Let's take care of ourselves by staying in shape, eating right and exercising. Make that commitment to love yourself too. There is a free website call that will help you get started.
Love your heart and keep living like a queen!
