The teeny tiny corner.... :)

So there's this corner on my kitchen counter that 
drives me insane. 
(this pic is on a good day)
It's the catch all corner. The clutter corner.
And most mornings it's the computers, iPads, techno everything corner.
Basically a total cluster...well, you know.

The worst part is..
it's all MY stuff:( and I have no where else to put it:( :( :(
no craft room....
no office....
no nuthin.

Can we just have a moment and check out what I got for FREE??
Yep. I was walking out of my local health food store 
(buying bacon no less!! hahaha)
and turned to my right to see this little lady with a free 
sign on her.
Look left. Look right. Load her up!

She's a sweet little thing who just needed a home...
in my home:)
Have I mentioned the tininess of this house?
I had no idea where I was going to squeeze her in, but I was
determined to give her a purpose I'm telling you!!

So I got to thinkin....
and movin....
and whaddya know....
she found her purpose!!

She is going to be my new little desk!!

Yes I robbed those topiaries from the right of the tv for this pic, but
don't you worry for a minute! I've already found more from my topiary hoard to replace them:)
Hi my name is Dorie and I'm addicted to topiaries.

 Aaaaahhhh!! Look at that cleaned up corner now!!

Thank you to whoever put this sweet little desk out for free
and brightened my world!!

Me so happy:)


  1. It's perfect! Free? It doesn't get better than that!

  2. How Cute!! I'm like you when I curb shop.... look around. ha!!

  3. because she's so slim and transparent she's the perfect desk for that space! Good job, my junk-finding doppelganger!!

  4. This is great! I like that you left it in it's natural state-I could see it in your (perfect) green color you use, too. But the white will blend into the wall color. You gave me an idea for a basket I was going to take to our thrift store-now I am going to repaint it! As always, I love your style!

  5. Fabulous new desk for you, and cleans up the clutter.

  6. I don't comment often, but I just wanted to say that I look forward to your posts each week. Your before and afters of the homes you rehab are just fabulous, and I love your sense of humor, too. Great little freebie desk somebody placed out there just for you!
