I drove by the Thrift Shop Yesterday,... laaadeeedaaa, Casually glanced in the window debating whether to go in and dig around, and there were these two pink wing chairs right there on display beckoning me!
Screeeeeeeeeeeechh... Put on the brakes, almost kill pedestrians pulling into a parking space... and in i went. I was thinking, ok, maybe they're dirty, or they smell like cat pee... or something is horribly wrong with them... it would be better that way
Nope - flawless, made in Hickory, NC, heavy, great curves, the perfect shade of pink.
Now what do i NOT need -
What did i buy -
How could i not buy them???
do you know how expensive a good chair is???
and there are two of them!!!
these were $75.00 a piece
I mean, i really like the slipcovered chairs i have...
I justified it, by saying, well... maybe i can sell them at my friend's shop... hmmm
just look at these gorgeous curves
ok, so who gets to drag my "fabulous finds" in and out of the house...
well... mr. fracturedfairytale of course
and who is really sweet usually, but gets irritated when i bring furniture in and out of the house when i don't really need said furniture???
you guessed it
and who gets her feelings hurt when he gets a little irritated
and then who says i'm never gonna ask for help again,
and then who gets mad because i said that
how many of you have "been there"?
and, we made up of course
none of this makes the remotest sense to him
hmmmm wonder why?
Because it dosen't make any sense!
not even to me!
Now i have a big old pink chair in the living room and another one to go pick up at the thrift shop, and it's 106 degrees outside
Maybe i could save them, in case, uhhhh, somebody breaks in and steals my other chairs
or, ummmm, come on guys help me out with this..
think of something
If he only knew what i didn't buy
Look at this big old brown leviathan buffet
But but but....Wouldn't it be to die for fabulous painted in Annie Sloan paint
like a gray with some white and distressing and wax and maybe a touch of silver leaf
thrift shop - $125.00
anyway, what do ya'll do when you find irresistible stuff???
and does your husband think you're insane???
ok, so while i figure out what to do with these two chairs
i'll end with a pretty little pot i found at Marshalls, with some sweet little white begonias i'm gonna plant in it,
I hope i don't trip over the pink chair blocking the front door when i go out to water it...
