*** Update ***
Are there no more takers on guessing how many Starbuck coffees it took to buy this chair?? Come on, play along ... and I'll be posting about something else soon, I promise. Maybe I'll even get around to updating Sean-Peter's speech progress. So much has happened there, it might take a book, so we'll see...
Ooh, there are so many things I've thought I should blog about, but obviously none of them got past the thinking stage. But today Olivia said something so cute and close to my little HGTv-addicted heart, about this chair I recently brought home from the Thrift Store.
Alas, even spending money at the thrift store is supposed to be on hold right now, in light of These Times and our waiting for some new tenants to rent our cute little house in Vegas and send us a check already. A coffee at Starbuck's is a splurge right now, for pete's sake.
But I am perpetually on the lookout for some decent incidental table chairs, since the ones we are using are so country-ish (and we are so not country-ish). I don't even care if they match. Antique would be nice, but not necessary. But they must be sturdy. We have a monkey living in this house and I would like them to survive his childhood.
So this is the first one I've come across that I deemed worthy of bringing home. Any takers on guessing how many Starbuck coffees it took to buy this chair? Anyone? Anyone? Low-ballers are not welcome. The price was very fair, but it wasn't free for pete's sake.
Besides, I figure since we apparently have two democrats running for office, if we really get in a bind with our mortgages the government will just bail us out. Who needs savings?
Oh -- but the cute thing Olivia said? I asked her today if she had noticed the "new" chair.
"Of course," she said. "I noticed it right away, because it's my favorite color!"
"Oh yes, because it reminds me of chocolate."
That a girl. That means I just satisfied two cravings in one blow. I love multi-functionality.
