Once upon a time I put my paint brush to this lowly dresser.
I dressed her up and debuted her at The Traveling Door.
She felt right at home here and I enjoyed having her.
I featured her here on my blog and soon she was gone to a new home.
Immediately I missed her unconventional style in this very traditional space.
Linens and tablescape tchotchkes that had found a home in her whimsical drawers were now piled haphazardly on a chair.
I was on the hunt to find a successor and I finally discovered her last weekend at a freight salvage store.
A blank white canvas that by the end of today only looked like this.
Probably because I am easily distracted and have zippo will power when a friend calls inviting me out.
I know she looks bad or as my daughter would say, she is a hot mess, but stay with me this week.
There are better days ahead for this little white wonder.
The up side of being seduced away from my task today was the jack pot I hit at our Pier 1.
I had admired this carved figure since last fall.
Knowing that he was mass produced I didn't want to pay $79.00 for him.
Lo and behold though, today I spied him lying on his side on the clearance shelf.
He was destined to come home with me.
When I discovered he was now only $19.00 ...
I bought his lady friend too.
Ahhh, I love a retail score.
