Bad News & Good News

Bad News:  My fridge up and died yesterday!  Will cost more to repair than to buy a new one.  So I spent the first day of mom's visit fridge shopping.  Hubby is out of town, which makes it extra tricky.  After some highs and lows, I found a fridge I want but Home Depot won't let me have it until March 21st!!!  And a local store doesn't carry the white.  Sigh.  So today I'm tracking down a fridge, thus I'll be a bit absent from the blogosphere.

Good news:  I found the best DIY drawer lining project at Blue Eyed Yonder.  So simple and gorgeous, I might even try it - even though drawer liners tend to seem too ambitious for me.  Take a look at the fabulous instructions here

  1. Condolences on the loss of your fridge. :( Hope you find one you like. And tell your mom hi for me.

  2. Hi Dana! My mom says "hi" back. She was just expressing her love for your blog this morning.

  3. Oh no!! How come you have to wait a month to get that fridge?!

  4. Home Depot doesn't keep them in stock. But - happily - I found another store that does carry the model I want (and it is cheaper, too!) and so I get a fridge tomorrow. Yay!

  5. Thanks Tanya! So happy to be your "good news" for the day. Stinks that your fridge died. I could probably live for a little bit without a fridge... but no freezer?! I have so many goodies frozen in there. Great chicken stock for soup, tons of hand rolled dumplings, peas and corn from my grandparents farm, and not to mention some yummy ice cream sandwiches. I hope you get your new one soon!

  6. Thanks! It literally does stink. Even though I emptied it out. . .

  7. What a cool idea! I love the drawer liners!!
