Serendipitous Garage Sale Find



Last Saturday, on the way home from the community Easter egg hunt, I stopped at a Garage Sale. I'm not sure what prompted me to stop, on Easter weekend, of all times!


But I'm so pleased with what I found! It's a foldable table made of Maple Hardwood flooring, identical to our own. The owner made it for his son who was living in an itty-bitty basement suite. He used it as a kitchen table.


We have struggled to know how to create more counter space in our kitchen without redoing the whole thing or at least adding a labour-intensive island. I think we have found the solution! Alley and I made muffins tonight on our new foldable table. And it worked wonderfully.

We made strawberry muffins! They were delicious. I used the Blueberry Bounty Buns recipe from Vive Le Vegan and added fresh strawberries instead of blueberries.

Tam--
Thanks! Keep your eyes open during garage sale season:).

Aimee-
Thanks! We think so too.

Sam-
HEY! Thanks for visiting. I went over to your blog and it looks great! Sorry to hear about your VW. Sad. Very sad.

I look forward to some posts about SCOTLAND!
