it's here and i'm off....

it's FINALLY here...
what do you think? looks fabulous, doesn't it?

yes, that is my garage! excuse the mess in the background, lol!

i love it, can't wait to put it in my living room when we move. there's just no room for it right now so it will remain in the garage with a majority of the rest of my belongings, lol!

here's a look inside the secretary, doesn't my lamp look fabulous! i bought the brass lamp about 10 years ago at an estate sale back home in grosse pointe. although, yesterday i had to take the to over the lamp shop to have the on/off switch replaced. the switch fell apart while i was taking it out to the garage. thankfully it's an inexpensive fix!
the owner of the lamp shop thought the lamp might be a baldwin brass? it's quite heavy and i'd be curious to find out the value of it? i think i paid $75.00 ten years ago? either way, it's not going anywhere and looks awesome on my new antique mahogany secretary!

also, before i forget i wanted to show you a few pieces of my mackenzie-childs knob collection. i have others but these are the ones from the dresser and end table in our guest bedroom.!

oh well, this afternoon i am heading to the green bay packers/chicago bears football game over at solider field! joy! joy! joy! i'd rather watch the detroit lions but my husband suprised me with a ticket to the game, so i guess i have no choice! lol!

it's suppose to rain so it will be a great day to break in my new hunter boots!


  1. What a beautiful piece of furniture. The lamp is lovely as well. I know you will get many years of enjoyment out of both pieces.

  2. Gorgeous! The lamp is fabulous, too. Have a great time! I hate football in the rain.

  3. I just got the exact same boots from Gilt!!! Don't you love them?!
