Bless you, jar. Today I am in such a hurry and have no time for a lengthy jar post and guess what! The jar gave me such an easy one.
And the jar says...
What was the first piece of furniture that you bought?
The first piece of actual furniture was a couch from the D.I. thrift store. It was awfully ugly... country style, blue with a ruffle on the bottom and such. But it was very comfortable and we loved it in our early married years. I guess we also bought our table but that was with money from people at our wedding so it didn't really feel like we bought it, we just picked it! :)
The first real, new and expensive thing we bought was a new mattress. This was early in our marriage too and it has been the best mattress!
We have only bought one more thing new and that is our entertainment center. It's pine with iron pulls and hinges. I like it.
