three reasons today was a totally amazing day!
reason no. 1: I got to go thrifting with "Rust and Ruffles" Janis for the whole day, that's right, the WHOLE day!
...and we found lots of treasures today, we almost couldn't see out the back of my van!
reason no. 2: Janis greeted me with this gorgeous gift for my birthday, don't you love birthdays that just keep going!
(it was all nicely tied together but of course I had at it right away...)
yummy burlap sacks that I have so been wanting to get my hands on
this gorgeous necklace Janis made 'specially for me, I wore it all day of course!
this cute vintagey tile " I bought only two gowns in Paris"
(ha, ha, not likely)
(ha, ha, not likely)
all tied up with a little birdy tag
now is that a great way to start the day or what!
reason no. 3: I found the best chairs ever. I have been looking for around 6 months for kitchen table chairs. The ones we have we bought almost 20 years ago when we were first married (yes, I was a young bride), and one by one they are falling apart on us, or more like under us (hmmmm....)
anyway, I digress, we've gone from 8 chairs down to 41/2, and since there are 5 of us on a daily basis = problem
...but I wouldn't settle for just anything, I knew exactly what I wanted, something Queen Anneish, but only had a budget of $100 for four chairs
so I found these, nice and sturdy and a compromise as I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in my price range
so bought the three for $30
well, wouldn't you know, the very next stop I found my dream chairs, four of them...
Me : Janis, I have a problem
Me: I just found chairs I like better than the others
Me: Here across the store, see, they're exactly what I want!
Janis: Well, you'll have to buy them
Me: We don't have enough space
Janis: Sure we do....
Well, we squeezed two in, (remember I already had three chairs and a ladder in there), I have to go back for the other two tomorrow, but aren't they beauties!!
look at those scroll backs and shapely legs
picture them white, with white upholstered seats....
oh, did I mention they were on for half price!!!!!!!!!!!!
yup, so came in under budget
so now I have 3 + 4 = 7 chairs
what do you think bloggers?
I was kinda thinking 4 chairs + a bench
do you think I should mix and match them all, or return/sell the first 3?
of course, Mr Keeper hasn't actually been in the garage yet........
but for now i'm one happy junker!!
