~A New Desk~
Hello everyone! Today we went to visit a friend and she happened to be getting rid of a desk. I'm not one to pass up free furniture, even if I am running out of room in our 1800 square foot house ;0) Grace and Emily wanted to use it for a letter writing desk, so we loaded it into our van and stopped by Goodwill to look for a chair.
Look what we found! It's white and it fits perfectly.
This was the original price tag. We got it for $5.99!
We also found a small crystal bowl for holding stamps.
And a mini bowl and pitcher for writing pens.
I gave the girls this small box for holding letters and stamps.
We already had the pictures which complete the new little writing nook. Not bad for just under $10.00!

It looks perfect. What a beautiful place to inspire some beautiful writing.
Perfect and looks great.
You are right. That is beautiful,classic and perfect.
I have been looking for a desk quite similar to that to turn into a vanity for my walk in closet.
What wonderful finds Kelli. I love the mini bowl and pitcher.
I so love that little chair...how adorable for sweet little girls...you did really good.
How wonderful! Bookworm is begging for a desk in her room, too. :)
whatta deal! It looks like such a satisfying find.
What a great writing nook for the girls! How fun that they now have their very own little area. :)
Love your creativity! Looks so pretty.
It all came together SO well! Perfect...it was like instant gratification! So wonderful for your girls! I remember REALLY thinking myself important and 'grown-up' when I had a desk that I could write letters at. Mine was only beautiful to me, though. ;-)
That is really nice. I hope the girls won't fight over it!
Very pretty! What a nice treat for two sweet young ladies.
What a sweet little writing nook AND at a very amazing price - good for you, Kelli! I'm sure your girls will enjoy it very much :)
I do love a good bargain!! What a cute little nook for the girls!
how adorable :) they'll have lots of fun writing at their new desk :)
Hi there..I think I came across your blog from a comment you left on Marybeths. I love it. Nice little nook you pulled together for your girls..how fun!
Kelli! Ahat is adorable. Imgine getting that chair! It looks like it was in new condition, too. And I love it that the girls are learning to write letters. All the accessories are so nice. I see a ladder peeking out there. Are they happy with there bunk beds. If you hadn't put them up you'd never have had the space for the desk.
What a great find! I bet your girls will be writing many letters from that desl in the coming years.
Looks wonderful. What lucky ducks y'all are!
How wonderful !!! I don't blame ya for not passing it up. Free is ALWAYS good :-). I love the chair too. Fits like it was meant to be.
Have a wonderful day!!
Perfect! That's the kind of shopping I love...
don't you just love the thrift store?
we made a visit to "sally anne's boutique" yesterday. they had a half-price sale so i got oodles of clothes for my son... who seems to be in a permanent growth spurt at this point;-)
That is awesome! I especially love the little chair. It's fun thrifting, but also great to be able to show our kiddos how fun it is as well!
What a wonderful writing spot. I also love all of your pretty little details.
Lucky girls! And, lucky mom - what great bargains you found.
I love the chair! Looks like a perfect writing nook for girls.
Wow Kelli, I love your new desk and the chair really matches perfectly with it! And what a very pretty letter holder you got as well! Congratulations and... happy letter writing!
Oh wow...I love that desk. Great job on finding such a deal! :D
I love finds like yours. A free desk and a low-priced chair together with such sweet accessories! What a great place for your girls to write and keep track of their 'business'. I'm hoping to upgrade and enhance my desk area one of these days. You have inspired me.
How very pretty! What fabulous finds, too!!
This looks so pretty. What a nice place to and sit and write a note. Linda
It's all perfect! Things do just seem to fall into place, don't they? Hope you are staying warm!
Very nice! Pretty soon they'll be writing articles for your magazine ... or in their journals (do they like Jane Austen?).
What a blessing! I have really enjoyed your little blog ! I found this through Jessica's blog.
I too, love finding little treasures that cost nothing!
Oh how cute. And I love the way you repurpose things. I am still having that camera issue so I have been trying to take a bunch of photo's before I go and get a c.d. I was going around and taking photo's of all my repurposed things. I especially love the idea of the stamps in the pretty dish. How will you keep the cat out of it though? I'll see you tomorrow!
Wow what a beautiful find!!! how blessed you were to find such nice things!! I went to s goodwill by us once and it was...well...scary!!
A girl after my own heart...head to Goodwill for embellishments. I do the same thing!!
You are my kind of lady! I never pass up free furniture :o)
I love what you did with the desk. I think any lady would just be delighted to write a letter from that desk!
How lovely! What wonderful words might be penned there by your girls!
Oh my gosh, I absolutely love this, what a fantastic find!!!
Wow, did you ever get some great deals. Love the pitcher idea for pens and pencils.
