Keep In Touch #124

Hi, Friends,
Welcome to Keep In Touch.

How are you?
I hope you are well. 

 This week we got away for a long weekend.  We did not have as much time to relax as we had hoped but it was a very exciting weekend. It was really good to get out of town but poor Bill didn't even get a nibble on a fish. He pulled the boat out of the water after a sufficient number of boat rides, however. 
Dixie loves the boat. 

We stopped in at my favorite antique store with the intent on finding a new buffet for the dining room. I'm looking for something that will match the corner cupboard. 
Instead, Bill spotted this gorgeous hutch. I wasn't sure and hemmed and hawed. This place is like Macy's or Kohl's. Where you never how much you are going to pay until you check out.
 Here, the owner tells you the best price while you are thinking things over. I think it's a little incentive to push you over the edge to buy. 
I couldn't hear him but he gave Bill his best price of $260.00. There is no way that we would pay anything that low in the "big city." I said, "Sold!" 
I switched from something for the dining room to something for the entryway that befit our new floors. After getting the new floors last year and then my stepmother dying a week or so later, I couldn't face moving more furniture around. Bonus time was the last week of February. I'd plan to shop then but we all know what happened the week after that. 
"Shut it down~!" 
This hutch is a perfect match for the corner cupboard. It has a very primitive look that I love. I filled it with ironstone and crusty old books. We broke one of the glass panes getting it home so we need to get that replaced. 
Fans of the dish dresser will be happy to note that it is back in the garden room where it can resume it's role as the holiday and seasonal cabinet. 
It's just waiting for pumpkins! 

"But Katie, what about your rule of 'something comes in - something goes out'?" 

Quite a few things will be going out if all goes according to our hopes and dreams. 

Have you guessed it yet? 
Please, come back and I'll share our exciting news in my next post. 

Please be sure to check out my last post. It was Pinterest Challenge time this morning. 

Now for the features. 

I love this post by Cindy of Cloches and Lavender. 
Those limelight hydrangeas are stunning. The containers are utterly gorgeous. 

This wreath is adorable from Naush @ Doodle Buddies. Can you guess what it's made out of? 

So fun for fall. 

Thanks to all of you that linked up last week. 
You are simply the best. I appreciate every visit and every comment. So many that visit my blog don't comment. I can't respond to many of you that do. I did want you to know how much I appreciate it when you take the time to comment. Your comments mean so much to me. 
Now for the link up.
