Finally I painted our other kitchen dresser and then super-finally replaced the 60-year-old cheap, broken drawer pulls (these things take time).
Of course, you're supposed to remove the old pulls first, but they were so old, so wonky, and I knew I'd be discouraged after spending all that time. So I painted, let it dry, then whacked away at the old pulls and replaced them with these which make me so happy I can't even tell you.
(Ignore the parts I must touch-up.)
And well, this little project should've been done only 20 years ago. (Good grief.) But then, the pulls would've been different back then and not these that, frankly, I stare at because of their beauty ('eyes of the beholder' and all that).
Oh, and over at Ebay I'd not found quite the right reproduction sign for our kitchen, that is, until I spied this one and immediately zoomed back to childhood:
The image, color, size--all were perfect.
How satisfying to actually do what one has procrastinated for eons. All it requires is taking that wild first step. Imagine.
And oh, the sunshine pouring in our windows lately! It may be cold out there (40's), but just give me sunny windows and I'm fine. Which reminds me, you'll not hear me complaining about winter these next months. After our hottest July and August? No way. I'm just gonna sit here like a contented girl and read and feel grateful that it's cold and not hot.
Yes Ma'am. :)

Oh, and here's an odd story (and photos) which my friend, Terri, shared with me at Facebook. Kind of Twilight zone-ish, but oh so cool!
