chocolate cherry cheesecake

the president picked this little guy up for me in a rummage sale last week. its so cute and i'm glad that he could see the potential in it. a little TLC and she will be perfect for storing makeup, hair stuff, odds and ends and maybe one day will end up in my home office. once i get one of course.  
my plan is to use some leftover paint i have from my last apartment and give it a little face-lift. i've already cleaned and sanded the base. i was going to change all of the knobs but after looking at them closer i have kinda fallen for them. some are smaller then others and i like how detailed they are. (hard to see in my blurry pics but they have little bands etched into them). so i've decided to keep most of them but buy just a few more expensive knobs. when you consider the little guy cost hardly anything and the paint is leftover i don't feel so bad spending a bit of money to make it perfect. 
so off to where i know i have drooled over the knobs before and wasn't disappointed.  the only problem is choosing which ones. i'm thinking three would be nice. 

but then i get to the check out and LOOKY here 20 dollhairs for shipping!! ummm....well thats just not in the budget mon amie.  
i happen to know that anthropologie just opened its very first canadian store in toronto and was already dying to go and check it out well this seems like a very good excuse to go ahead and do just that. my ttc ticket will hardly compare to $20 for shipping. unless, well, once i get there, i may fall in love with more then just knobs. its been known to happen.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can
survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
