I know we all have done this, so I'm going to be brave and confess.
Has the green eyed jealousy monster ever crept up on you when reading a post from someone who has had great Craigslist fortune? I admit it! I have MANY times...sad to say. But today, I was the blessed one who had the good fortune land in my lap!
I was getting ready to hop in the car and drive an hour + to go and "see" about a dresser. You know what I mean when I say "see". The dresser you're about to drive across the state for isn't exactly what your looking for...but it could do. It's not quite the style, looks like the veneer is popping a little... And to add to the torture of not knowing if you are really going to come home with the dresser after the long drive is the price is a little too high. This was me this morning...then just by happen stance, I peaked once more at Craigslist, praying for a miracle...(the said dresser would be sold...or the Hallelujah moment that actually happened to ME!)
Oh the detailing! Dovetailing! Beautiful mirror! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: ALL THE DRAWER PULLS! Lol! Yes, my jaw dropped and I fumbled for the phone as quickly as I could! The listing was only 30 minutes old, but where I come from...that is like forever! I dial....the nice man answers!!! YES! And I can come right then! It's only a 45 minute drive! And the price...well that would be a sin to tell you! Oh how blessed I was today! I am still in shock and awe of this beautiful find! I just can't wait to do something with it...but it's going to have to be amazing...no angelic! lol!
So no green eyed jealousy monster here today! Just me, smiling to myself...happy as the little chickadees outside my window.
Oh, please forgive my messy garage! As you can see...I have many treasures I've been working on:)
