Best 10 bucks I ever spent!

I am still doing my *happy dance*. I went junkin' this morning and I spotted this leaning against the house. The first thing I noticed was the $10 price tag. Let me tell you - it really got my attention. I thought I was seeing things at first. She said that it had *problems*. She said that one of the legs was shorter than the rest. I decided that my handy husband would just have to take care of that little detail. I looked the rest over and knew this baby was going home with me. At that point I really didn't have any clue how I was going to get it home as it certainly wasn't going to fit in my car. We have a huge truck, but I'm afraid to drive it and my husband was at work.


My neighbor's son ended up rescuing me. When we loaded it in truck, I discovered the problem with the leg. You'll never believe it . . .


. . . it was just missing one of its wheels!!

I was already aware that it was also missing the hardware and mirror, but for $10 you just can't be that picky!!!

PS. If you look at the update to my post from yesterday, you may notice something familiar beside Sarah's bed in her dorm room.
