Joyful Inheritance

 Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

            I wanted to share with you all a lovely story and a new addition to my little family.

Once upon a time....

A young Joyful thrifter grew up with a simple dining room set, and to her it was the table and chairs that was used at Thanksgiving and a hutch that held her mothers wedding china that was rarely ever used. As time went on my sweet mother found a "new to her" dining room set after her children left the nest. After the new dining set was put in place she posted her old dining room set on craigslist. A sweet couple came and picked up the set, and were pleased as could be to have a "new to them" dining room set. When the Joyful thrifter was visiting with a friend from church it came out that she just picked up her mothers dining room set. The Joyful thrifter was overjoyed to find out that her mom had accidentally given her dining room set to a lovely couple attending her church.

  As time went on the dining rooms new owners moved away to texas and could not take the beautiful dining room set, so they gave the hutch away to another lovely couple.

The now married Joyful thrifter forgot all about the hutch she grew up with until a wonderful surprise awaited her when she signed into facebook. The first picture she saw on her newsfeed was her mothers hutch with the following comment below it: I am moving and I can't keep this hutch. Who would like it? The Joyful thrifter quickly sent a private message asking her friend who now owned the hutch if she could please have the hutch and how much did she want for it? The response its yours and the price is FREE!!! The Joyful thrifter re-inheritated her mothers hutch and gave it a new home.

The End

Welcome back to the family hutch.

This hutch will store all of my Pyrex. I hope to get it all organized and cute in the near future.
