Bloggers are the Best!!!
A few weeks ago, i did a post on how I was re-decorating my living-dining-room.
I was going from bright reds-yellows french country to a more
Neutral Calm Elegant French style using all of my Vintage Pieces.
Well one of the things I desperately wanted was a Leather sofa from (Restoration Hardware $3500) way out of my budget.
I described the leather sofa (Worn-Brown-with metal tacking on arms) this is what I wanted.
This past week an AMAZING reader of my Blog called the shoppe and left a message for me, that she spotted one at the
Salvation Army & it was half off..
I didn't get the message till 5:45 pm- I debated to even drive all the way down town to check out , during rush hour traffic-based on someone I don't know calling the shoppe.
BUT (what if) it were the one..
So we packed up the kids in the SUV and trucked on down, making it there 30 min. before they closed.
As I spotted the back and saw the color- then moved to the front of it, I heard Angels Singing..
THE EXACT leather Sofa I wanted...
Worn- Brown-Metal tacking and in Perfect Condition, & THE BEST part at half off ONLY $75!!
Thank you anonymous Blogger who called my shoppe.
Months ago I bought this Antique Chandelier from a Picker friend of mine, and this is wear it has sat for the entire 2 months- Until this weekend.
My daughter scrubbed every nook-cranny for me with a brush, I cleaned every crystal & gave my husband a big KISS to Hang for me.
I LOVE IT!!
My heart just pitter patters every time I look at it or my new sofa..
To know that someone read my blog, and took the time to call my shoppe to tell me about the sofa, or a friend thought to call me with an amazing antique chandelier knowing I would love it, Just Makes my heart so Happy..
SO to both of You, Know that every time I walk in the family room, I'm so excited & Thrilled with my treasures that are bringing my vision come to life because of you.
Thank God for Thoughtful Picker Friends & the Kindness of Amazing Bloggers who I also think of as Blessed friends..
p.s. still working on curtains-chairs..
