This morning marked a bittersweet farewell at our nest. There she is. My sweet.vinyl.turquoise.damask chair I scored for $3. I did so love this chair. In return she did not love me however... and 'fainted' beneath me during a dinner party a while back. Now, if I was a welder I would gladly have put those metal legs back together again..
Alas, I am not a welder. And today we had a dumpster at our house (for the gutted basement and our disaster garage). So ... sadly, she was the first in line. I admit that my Scottish..sentimental side had me run back in and slice all the vinyl off the chair. I hope to make some sort of clutch.wallet with it in the future. :o)
Here was a sweet discovery during our garage purge today. All wrapped up in paper... nestled in a box of bits and pieces.. this sweet gold owl [showcased on my rescued chair vinyl].
My poor husband the minimalist was heaving stuff into the dumpster while I kept poking and prodding through pieces I wanted to justify keeping. I admit I am one of the worst partners to purge anything with.
In other news.. stay tuned for an exciting announcement tonight... about tomorrow. :o)
See you soon,
