Lawn Chair to Guilded Throne

Hola amigos! This week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word was chosen by the divine Ms. Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti    This week's word was a challenge! The word is VEXED.  I had to give it some thought and here is what I came up with.

DR was checking on our couches in the thrift store yesterday.  He texted me to tell me he'd bought this little table. He loved it and the price was phenomenal. I'm going to just admit it...I was a little VEXED. I didn't know we needed another little table or where we would put another little table. And I've had to work quite hard to eliminate clutter from my life. So call me a bitch...I was VEXED.

In the end, I was VEXED for no reason, because it worked out great! We stuck it in this corner where we keep some toys and books piled up for my grands.  It is a completely hollow storage area! We just stuck that clutter inside and it looks so nice!

So, next time, I will try not to be VEXED about a piece of furniture...or much else for that matter. Often, things work out just fine in the end.

Hope you all have no reasons to feel VEXED this weekend! Thanks for coming we'll just see who Tara tags for next week!

I get vexed for the same reasons, S.D. had packrat tendencies and I cringe whenever I see him eyeing something like this at the second hand store.

Wow, "divine"? Why thank you verra much! :)

Oo, that's a nice little table! I went to the thrift store on Saturday, but didn't find anything I couldn't live without. I eyed a treadmill, but there's just no way to decorate around exercise equipment.

I get vexed when my mom tries to give me furniture I know won't work in my apartment. I want to keep the clutter down. Not that her stuff is clutter, it's nice, but I like room in my place. We're trading some furniture this weekend, though. She's giving me a really nice nightstand and I'm giving her the table I was using for a nightstand.

Silver: DR LOVES thrift shops. I hate to be the spoil sport, but I also hate to sidle through an apartment full of things I might or might not need someday :)

Tara: Trading is the best! When someone comes in, something else needs to go out. In this case, I was able to use the new table to hide an old mess...and that is a success story :)

It looks like a nice and sturdy table. I hope the price was right. I get vexed when I go out and buy something that I'm not entirely sure that I need. At least you are putting it to good use.
