When the things that you want appear before your eyes

Yesterday I was thinking (after seeing two mice in the barn) that we needed a resident black snake to move in. Husband sent this photo to me while out feeding last night:

Today I suddenly remembered the Welsh hutch I found online months and months ago, from a custom furniture shop, $3000+ which is why I never followed up on it. This evening I went onto Craigslist and found this, very close to the one I found, nearby, $400. Picking it up Saturday morning!

I’m redoing the laundry room at some point and this will be the first step of that process. We have two long tables that came with the house and they have served us well functionally but are not that attractive and take up too much space in a small room that gets used a lot. I’m looking forward to bringing this piece in. 

Though it’s a game of dominoes, as usual. Now that this is coming in I’m thinking, well, we should go ahead and paint the wall before moving this in so we don’t have to move it to paint later. Isn’t that always the way it goes? 

Happy, in any case. :)

That hutch is beautiful. I wouldn’t mind finding that for the price. The snake...not so much. We don’t get along.

It was actually handmade in Spain and has “papers” - can you believe it?
