Remember when I made my discovery of " The mystery of the panelled Door " ?
( Hey I wasn't a Nancy Drew fan for nothing you know )
Ready to see what was behind the panel?
and remember this one? ( of which there are 2 side by side in the landing - the master bedroom and the office )
Here we go
admittedly there's some work to do on them lol - but still - I just love them
those plastic " tiffany " panels are gone-zo - like outta here - as in make like an egg ..........and beat it
here's the bathroom door
so here's the killer -
this entire house ( almost ) is covered in that cheap panelling that was HUGE in the 70's - I seem to remember it being in every basement in Montreal at that time...................
so why I was surprised to see these doors were covered in THAT panelling I have no idea - but I was!!!
it was like - no - really? even the doors? lol
they simply turned it around and used the "flat" side!!!
ok - so that's the end of the door story ( until I sand and paint them of course ) but here's a
Most of you know that John and I had decided we were going to take a vacation at some point in the New Year - I did a post on it a while back ( and I'm too tired to go find the link to it lol )
What you don't know is that the money is flying out of our bank account faster than we can keep track of it - and so we kind of thought we would forfeit the vacation for luxuries like - oh I don't know - a kitchen floor?
A couple of weeks ago we purchased a car - and while at the dealer, the salesman, before finalizing the paper work, pointed to a CHRISTMAS tree where there were envelopes hanging all over it.
( and you can read about my thoughts on CHRISTMAS trees - one of my " rants " from last year - HERE
Salesman says - I'd like you to go pick an envelope
Suzan says - What's in them?
Salesman says - Well you can get from 50.00 up to 500.00 off the price of your car.
Suzan says - Let's do it!
I stood on my tippy toes - and reached as high as I possibly could - and grabbed an envelope by it's corner
Salesman says - Ok - open it up
Suzan opens it up -
Suzan screams -
Suzan screams - and laughs - and screams again
Suzan slaps the Salesman on the arm. Hard
Salesman winces slightly.
Other customers are looking at us - other salesman are coming by -
Who is this crazy lady screaming her fool head off -
Did she win 50 dollars?
She must have won the whole 500.00 to be acting like this?
BUT THE SCREAMING LADY WAS SCREAMING BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST WON A 5 DAY CARIBBEAN CRUISE............................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Suzan says - You never mentioned that I could win a vacation!!!
Salesman says - No one's ever picked that envelope before - to be honest with you I don't bother mentioning it at all because it's disappointing.
Holy Crapoli - I won the trip!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like we'll be getting a kitchen floor AND a vacation lol
And solid wood farmhouse doors -
Oh it's just all too much, isn't it?
God help us all if I ever win the big lottery - the person next to me would be black and blue to say the least :)
We set sail from Florida sometime in end Feb or early March - we have several dates to choose from and haven't decided yet.
Have a wonderful day y'all ( practising my southern speech )
Suzan and John
( AKA - The Professor and Mary Ann )
P.S. we've never been on a cruise before - so this is really a spectacular win :)
