Well, today I risked my fingers by checking out the two old wingback chairs I "Barbasoled" over the weekend. I know that I should have done a better job vacuuming the chairs before scrubbing them with Barbasol, but I knew that I would have to eventually give the dry chairs a good vacuum. So I waited until today.
But something reminded me that I had better check for "lost" items. Over the years my MIL has "lost" a few pieces of jewelry. Besides a few stale pretzels, chips, and cookie crumbs, I found two furniture pins (that could have been painful), a Christmas ornament hanger, a 5 Euro cent piece ($.07) and a 2 Euro coin ($2.76).
Now I have some extra "pocket money" for shopping at the charity shop. From someone else's pocket now into my pocketbook!
Shame this apartment doesn't have more old furniture!
