My best curb hauls in the past were a coffee table, a side table and two antique wooden chairs. This year I only got one piece, and I didn’t have to travel far. It was sitting at the end of the driveway across the street. Score!
While the kids ran up the driveway to fetch their buddy for the bus, I stumbled across the street with my mug of tea and checked out the treasure: a chunky wooden nightstand with aged brass accents. I gave it a quick inspection and saw the drawer opened smoothly, and the whole thing was pleasantly heavy. Yes, please!
It was a busy weekend with SO. MUCH. FOOD. The prep work actually started Friday evening as I chopped onions (and crieddddd) and celery and “staled” (that’s a verb) three loaves of bread so I could cube it for stuffing.
We hosted Thanksgiving dinner here on Saturday and it was delicious — thanks mostly to my mom, who promptly took over the actual cooking duties while I went thrifting. Woohoo!
