same and simple

Thrifted earlier this week, we basically kept it the SAME.  Didn't change the color, but hubby sanded, primed and painted this nifty little metal cupboard. 

There's something to be said for sameness...(I'm just not sure WHAT.)

I've added the brooch to dress it up a bit (and also to cover a bit of cleavage that tends to show itself.  This simple outfit is comfortable and suitable for several activities I have planned today --
  • leading a hymn sing at a local nursing home,
  • accompanying my husband as he visits a person in a different nursing home later in the day,
  • checking out a thrift store in that town,
  • and enjoying lunch/dinner at a favorite restaurant.
All clothing and shoes were thrifted years ago!  The brooch was obtained in an exchange at our (then) Red Hats luncheon.
