Seriously I do.
This past week I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of two amazing pieces from 2 friends. Score!
First this beauty:
A retro/mid-century? Lazy-Boy Rocker/Recliner. I have never seen one of these before.
My friend Laura bought it second-hand, and she didn’t want to haul it with her as she will be moving back to her hometown. So she offered it to me, FREE!
And then, there is the most beautifulest, grandest, most regal of all chandelier cinderella stories.
My friends Jeff and Joanna bought a new house around the same time we did.
And with the home came a collection of chandeliers that didn’t fit their taste and style of the home.
I tried not to gasp out loud, but I just thought it was so beautiful! Eventually I couldn’t contain my admiration and offered to buy it if they ever wanted to replace it.
Well lucky me! After several months of my husband resisting (he couldn’t visualize it in our home), and the J’s not ready to replace it yet, we finally became the proud new parents of this baby :)
Ain’t she grand?!
Yep, I’m a lucky gal with awesome friends and the best husband that loves and trusts his wife enough to let her buy this chandelier*.
*no J’s, hubbies, or wandering toddlers were harmed during a somewhat tense chandelier-hanging that included 3 adults on 3 ladders, plus 1 clumsy pregnant woman on the ground barking orders, rude..*
