Before I begin this post, let me apologize for the delay. Not only has it been a really busy few months with graduation and vacations and so on, I was informed by another blogger that we shared our blog names. She initially accused me of copyright infringement but you can’t copyright a title or name.

The fit, finish and fixtures were cheap, things like plastic sink basins, low-end fabrics and cheap blinds. It had a short queen bed that was lumpy and springy. The cabinets were thin particle board. You get the idea. Daily use would have destroyed that thing. Continue reading
