One such update was a prized find (aka steal) from Scott's Antique Market. Months back, I secured a large treasure of burlap remains from one of the vendors. He specializes in stamped burlap lampshades, chairs and all sorts of lovelies that are just beautiful. Well, my good fortune was that he had a huge heaping pile of "mis-stamps" that he was ridding from his inventory for a few dollars a piece. I scored quite a few darlings with a $5 price tag and couldn't be happier.
When I arrived home with my new prized steal, Dear Hubs didn't exactly see it the same way. His response to my proud "Look what I bought sooooooooo cheap" was "That's great ... what are you going to do with it? You know it's not a deal unless you need it." Well, while his sensibility put a damper on my spirit for a moment, I set out to determine my "need" for this.
So, one of the beauties now proudly hangs in a gorgeous bronzed wood frame in my kitchen. Complete with a cute pic of Baby B and my rooster lamp from Neimans ... the antique table is now completely set, don't you think?
