This weekend was full of amazing.
The twins and nana and I went on our local historic home tour.
(total aside: I saw the cutest idea on the tour where someone hung a globe from the ceiling. Please immediately let me know if you have ever done this and let’s be friends.)
The twins baked Christmas cookies in the new kitchen and decorated them with icing and calligraphy and sprinkles and I supervised and danced to Jingle Bell rock and made sure the cookies tasted okay.
Our family started our Christmas season with this beautiful advent book.
We went to see the Nutcracker in Ft. Worth and watched Clara fall asleep and the Sugar Plum fairy spin under a thousand twinkling lights.
And just when I thought the weekend couldn’t get any better.
Just when I so full of amazing your head would spin.
This showed up at a local yard sale.
Christmas came early this year.
I’m not really sure exactly what it is.
Please chime in if you have ever seen one, used one or currently are pushing one around your own home.
Here are my best guesses in no particular order.
A restaurant cart?
And industrial service vehicle on wheels?
A library organizer?
Here’s a clue to our mystery yard sale find.
It came with these metal inserts. They fit down into the holes on the middle of the shelves. They look like racks that were used for printing? Or dishes? Or books?
I can’t decide if I like it better with our without them.
And these sturdy wheels are at the bottom of each of the legs.
They lock in place and twist in all directions.
The cart called to me from the side of the road. We were driving by heading to the historic home tour. The sun was shining. The birds were caroling.
This little slice of affordable, amazing, incredible, once-in-a-lifetime yard sale heaven hopped into the back of my car.
What am I going to do with it?
I am so glad you asked.
I have a few ideas.
(total aside: please tell me you are not the least bit surprised.)
Here are my top five.
1. Use it with the inserts and roll it into the office with file folders in all the compartments.
2. Use it with one insert on the bottom and a basket on top to hold gift wrapping supplies.
3. Use it without inserts and three spray-painted numbered baskets on each shelf to hold craft supplies.
4. Use it without inserts and stack vintage games on it in the family room.
5. Use it with both sets of inserts and organize all my vintage marquee letters in the craft room.
The possibilities are endless.
Here’s to amazing weekends and yard sales everywhere.
PS I just thought of another one. Wouldn’t it be cute next to the tree stacked with presents?
Christmas is so much better with a rolling cart. 🙂
