A new Craig's List find......



I haven't bought any treasures on Craig's List in ages!
However the other day I found this chair....



The finish wasn't quite right and the
 fabric doesn't exactly match anything in my house.
However if I bought the chair that same
day the price was $30!!!


Amazing detail and a great price...can't beat that!
The chair will be receiving a mini face lift so stay tuned!



And.....a little random prettiness......



I picked this Orchid up the other day when I went to the grocery store. 
It is my favorite color and makes me smile every
time I walk into the room!

Joining the party at:
Hope to see you there!

I have GOT to check my local Craigslist regularly! What a steal! Love your orchid too...that's the best when a flower can bring a smile to your face every time you see it. It's such a happy color too!

You always find the most delightful things, Deserae. I like your chair and can't wait to see what you have planned for it. Love the orchid, so delicate and pretty. I didn't know that was your favorite color. :)

Have a nice Wednesday afternoon.

love, ~Sheri

That chair at $30 was practically giving it to you free. It is worth at least $450 used as a Maple hand carved frame. Most likely from the late 1980's as I have similar chairs. Machines don't do that carving. I would snap up any chair like this if I saw it.

What a great deal. I can't wait for the makeover. The orchid is gorgeous. Sadly, I'd probably kill it.
