Over at Mellywood’s Mansion, Mel was getting a bit tired of finding her children’s Thomas the Train tracks in a disorganized jumble all…the…time.  If you are a mom, I’m sure you can relate.  So, when she spotted an old coffee table on the side of the road, Mel knew just what to do with it.

Marcie of Red Telly was out shopping with her husband when they came across this 1957 Lane cedar chest.  She loved the chest immediately, but almost walked away since she wasn’t sure where she would put it in their house.  But Marcie’s husband told her he knew she’d regret it if she didn’t get it, so with his encouragement, they brought it home.  (He sounds like a keeper, Marcie!)
