Introducing…A Brand New Me!

I am super pleased to introduce you to my newest adventure:


Long-time readers know that I’m full to the brim of both useless and useful bits of information. Serentipity is my attempt to corral the useful stuff into a central place and, I hope, give others that little tingle of joy in finding something they didn’t know they were looking for. Topics will likely be all over the place–some serious, some silly, and some in between. There will also likely be some cross-pollination, maybe even some simul-posting from time to time. I’m kind of making it up as I go along. :)

Since this is my first time to build a WordPress blog on my own (no Harriet this time), design and layout will likely be an evolutionary thing. Isn’t that half the fun? Bear with me, please, as I enjoy splashing in the pool.

To celebrate my new undertaking and to give you a little taste of what to expect, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks here on Tippy Toe Diet during November. Won’t that be exciting! :)

Oh, and in case you’re wondering if having a publishing empire new blog will interfere with The Tippy Toe Diet, rest assured that I’ll still be here with my rambly self. This community is where my heart is, after all.

I hope you’ll give Serentipity a look-see when you have a moment. Bring a friend, if you’d like! There’s plenty of room for everyone! And if turns out not to be your cuppa, feel free to hang out here and enjoy.

Side notes:

Thank you for your FroToe suggestions! (My toes say thanks as well!) Maybe I can catch some Black Friday sales on warmer socks/walking shoes!

Yesterday was NOT a FroToe day as it was quite warm outside. Especially after I found this:

abandoned nightstand

Poor little drawer-less, abandoned nightstand

While I was out on my walk, it practically jumped into my arms and begged me to take it home with me, apparently not knowing that I lived about a quarter mile away. It looked so sad at being abandoned on the curb when its owners moved away. How could I resist? (My arms and back are wishing I had left it there, but after missing out on a pair of awesome kitchen chairs a few weeks ago–they were snagged before I could get back with my car–I wasn’t willing to risk it.) A good cleaning and a coat of paint, and this will be by new printer stand, complete with handy shelves for paper and printing supplies.

Do you ever pick up abandoned furniture? What’s your best find?

Note: I do draw the line at dumpster diving. So far. :)

  1. Good luck on your new venture! I’ll be checking it out for sure!

    I never would’ve thought of that for a printer stand! How inventive! I don’t rehab furniture so I’ve never snagged a roadside find but I so admire people with that talent.

  2. I’m with you on the dumpster diving, but I LOVE repurposing old furniture that was going to end up in the trash. My wife has an amazing desk she got at Goodwill that with some paint and TLC looks AMAZING. It actually makes me a little jealous, because my desk doesn’t have such a cool story.

  3. Congrats on your new venture!

    I have not had luck with free furniture. It always smells like animal pee, which is usually why it is out on the curb LOL!

  4. I can’t wait to see the re-furbed printer stand!
    I’m going to check out the new site.
    So excited. I’ll spread the word.

  5. How exciting Cammy! I will check out your new site as soon as I am done here OR a little later after some sleep!

    Love your find! I am sure you will transform it as you did yourself! :-)

  6. I’ll definitely check out your new blog, Cammy! Very exciting :)
    WHAT a FIND! I’m jealous! I get this big rush when I find a solid piece of furniture on the side of the road (I do draw the line at upholstered furniture after finding bugs once – blech!) I have several great finds in my house and love them all!

  7. I absolutely marvel at the concept of leaving furniture on the sidewalk! It does not happen here!

    I’m going to check out the new blog toute de suite!
