This was no ordinary garage sale!
When we arrived at the Been residence to begin our fun weekend
hubby said to me..."ooo there's a garage sale down the street"
to which I replied.."maybe I'll walk down later"
After we had skulked about all over Lubbock looking for cool stuff
Mattie and I made it down to her neighbor's house...
Sandra..who is from Columbia..the country
and this is what I found..the photo does not do it justice
EXACTLY what I have been looking all over for
but the hairstylist that bought it was to be back by 1 PM
with cash and if she didn't return..the table was mine!
I literally, I hate to admit it, but I literally went back to Mattie's in the quiet of my room and said a prayer
"I want that table...please oh please oh please let me have that table...please?"
but there was other cool stuff to buy!
like this cut lead decanter
to join hub's collection of vintage bar ware
and a set of glass tables that I put beside guest room bed
$30 for the pair
a piece to an old piano...where they foot pedals are? not sure, but
is this not an awesome architectural piece?
wine crates..by the dozen..we only took 3
we had golf clubs!
well...as it turns out, the hairstylist came back, cash in hand and picked up all her stuff
including the cool table
I literally, I hate to admit it, but I literally begged hubby to go beg her to buy it...right off her truck
reluctantly, he did and he offered her $75...she took it...if it had been me I would have said
but she took the money which proves
prayer works...even when you are being a spoiled brat
yep..this photo is in
we also found this wonderful picture at a neat garden store
that I do believe I will hang on the Jerico wall instead of the Poppy
which I originally planned
Hey....that looks like some pretty cool stuff all stacked up there
waiting waiting waiting
and speaking of waiting
