Where are the pictures?

Well, the decorating was finished and the pictures taken, ready to be shared.  Then, all hell breaks loose at my house!  On 12/22, we noticed the freezer wasn't freezing.  By the next day, the refrigerator was kaput.  So, we buy a new refrig with delivery scheduled for 12/24.  Delivery arrives as promised but the deliveryman determines that the refrig won't fit in the space.    Fortunately, we do have another ancient unit in the garage which we put to use.  On 12/26, we return to the appliance store to re-purchase.  Lo and behold (after another set of measurements), the original piece WILL fit in the space- darn those INCORRECT online measurements!  I'm happy to say that the refrig was re-delivered and is working great!

Breakdown #2: yesterday, my washing machine malfunctions (as in water pouring out the door- the sensor didn't tell it to stop filling).  So, off to the appliance store to buy a new washer (which really means a new washer and dryer).  This morning, we became the proud, but poor, owners of a new washing machine and dryer.

My head is spinning, my wallet is empty.  Looking forward to a calamity-free 2012 and wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

I can feel your pain! ;) We decided to keep out old dryer-it's just a matter of time, I'm sure. I just hope I don't follow in your footsteps and need a new fridge too! :)

Happy New Year!!!

I hated dumping the working dryer, but the set sat on a shared pedestal and the newer washers didn't fit the old pedestal. If it hadn't been a holiday week, I would have had more time to find a needy recipient. It kills me! Enjoy your night and day!

Yikes! Sometimes we need a break from finding vintage treasures to deal with life, which can be so disappointing! I just found your blog and I really enjoy it, now following!

Oh, no. I'm just catching up on you and it seems you've had an expensive December. Hope the new year brings you less appliance malfunctions!

Thanks, Pam!. What else could possibly break??? The stove is only 2 years old- that better have a long life!
