Yes, as I've said before I can be a little bit (just a little bit) OCD...
Right now I'm on a quest to find a little cart.
I actually just love those new ones at Safeway...have you used them? They're about 1/3 the size of a regular shopping cart with an upper and a lower basket? They're so darn handy.
Well.........if you've read MY STORY....you'll know why I NEED this. My darling husband isn't seeing it, but I KNOW...
I have TONS and I do mean TONS of china. When I'm doing a BIG cleaning I'll take it alllll to the kitchen sink and wash every single piece. Now, the cottage is VERY tiny, but it still means a gazillion steps to get all of this crap.......I mean beautiful collectibles.........to the sink. In the past, I've used an old metal tea cart with a big plastic tub on top. The problem with that is that the wheels aren't as great as they once were so it's hard to steer. Ever notice how easily you can zip a grocery cart around?
Soooooo.........I've been searching and searching and searching for a solution.
See that little dandy on the top? Red? Yes, I know....it would be soooo much cuter in pink. I wonder how that Krylon paint would work on these?....yeah, that doesn't really have anything to do with the whole business here, does it?
Well..........it's $99.00. Yeah, that's not too bad....especially when I consider how many steps it will save me........but the shipping? Yeah, I nearly keeled over when I read this little bit of info.........
THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY DOLLARS!!!
FOR ONE CART?
Oh my....that's just not going to work. How ridiculous.
So, I'm thinking one of you little sweeties just may know where I could find something that would work? I don't mind putting a little plastic tub on top to hold all of the little beauties, but it does need to be able to fit around the teensie beensie cottage.........and roll easily over carpet.
I'd so appreciate any hot little tips you might have?
I know you gals are one big 'ol wealth of information.
Let me have it! :-)
Huggies and Lovies to ALL....
***Cart update.......My darling hubbs suggested a little market on the other end of town....he thought they would know where I could find one like they have...Wellllll......they're actually getting new carts and let me buy one of the old ones for 25 dollars! How awesome is that? It's like the top one but the baskets go the other way on the cart. It will be perfect. I'm thrilled.
God answers prayers. These are my very favorite answers to prayer. Isn't He amazing? A cart is such a small thing in the scheme of life, but He even cares about a cart! WOW!....I am feeling so blessed today. Thank you for all of your wonderful suggestions.
Much love to all of you!
