Furniture (What Else?)

I have been told that we do not post enough. The problem is, I only post when something interesting is happening (preferably with pictures to match), and nothing much has been going on lately. However, I did realize that I never posted about our first Amish furniture purchase!

We have been looking for a large bookcase to hold our enormous volume of books. I found one I loved at Pottery Barn, but Jesse really wanted to buy American. Apparently there is only one company that makes all of their furniture here, and that company is both expensive and ornate. The only other way to find USA furniture is to go Amish. While Amish furniture certainly isn't cheap, it is very high quality and customizable. I was sold when I saw this bookcase, which is practically identical to the PB one I wanted, except that it is custom made so we could choose a wood color that matched the rest of our living room!

Isn't it beautiful? And it holds all our books!

Working Hard or Hardly Working?

For some yet-to-be-disclosed marketing reason, we had pictures taken of our labor and employment group (aren't we a happy bunch?)

More strangely, we had a ton of individual pictures taken as well.

So now you can see me the way I look at work -- though oddly enough, this whole exercise has killed in total probably one full day of productivity! Sigh.
