I love the hot weather Summer time brings, but when there is too much of something, I guess is not too good. :/
My region, the Washington D.C. area, was one of the ones hit by last Friday's powerful thunderstorms. My neighborhood was left without electricity. :(
Can you imagine that?
It was NOT fun.
All day Saturday we tried to stay away from home. On Sunday this was one of the ways my son and his friends were tolerating the high temperature.
As I write this post there are still thousands without power. I really, really wish it can be restored soon, it is a nightmare to be without it.
Moving on, I am sooo happy with my latest find.
Let me tell you about it. First of all, NO! I am not expecting a baby.
One of my sisters and her lit baby boy (well, he is more like a toddler now, 18 mo.), are visiting and I want to make their stay as comfortable as possible, so as soon as I saw this beautiful crib on Craiglist I knew I had to have it.
My little visitor is going to have his own safe place. Mama is sure going to sleep better keeping enough distance from her boy. ;)
Look at this beautiful crib.
Great lines. or should I say curves?
Those round feet are another of my faves!
Oh, I love it! The best part is that it was only $40, and it can be used with some other parts as a full size bed.
I haven't decided yet what is going to happened to the crib after the visitors leave, but I went to see some possibilities around blog land.

There are many possibilities, that for now are on hold. I first need to go and set it up as it's intended because my visitor is coming soon.
