I promised pics of my Wednesday morning find and here it is...well, a little piece anyway. Can you tell what it might be?
Starting to get an idea? look at the fabulous shade of cobalt blue...and the sweet daisy chain and the remains of some white or cream paint...
Taa Daa! Here it is, finally out of my truck, with a bungee still in place to hold the leaves down...Is the table absolutely Fabulous, or is it just me?? Do you love the curve of the leaf? And the way the daisy chain echos the shape?
At home at last, well sort of...until I can find just the right spot for it, my sweet table is staying in my friend Steph's shed. She told me this morning I have visitation rights, but she's going to be sad to see it go! Now for the rest of the story. You're gonna love this. I was running super late to town yesterday on my way to work, but decided I had to check out Our Father's Closet, my favorite thrift shop. I usually go on Monday, but my truck was in the shop and I had NO time on Tuesday. Maybe broke a speed limit or 2 getting there...didn't want to be late for work. Pulled into the parking lot...and there...right in front of my truck, outside, sat THE table! My heart literally was beating faster as I jumped out of the truck saying "please don't let it be sold"...No sold sign. I cut off 3 hispanic women getting to the front door....I did say excuse me...all the while saying "please don't let there be a dealer in there with her wallet in hand buying my table"...No dealer in sight. Lady who works there was sorting stuff...right by the door, so I sort of skidded up to her, trying to look nonchalant (Yeah, right) and said " The little table out there...how much?" She got that look on her face that thrift ladies get when trying to come up with a price on something that;'s unmarked...you KNOW that look! I held my breath, preparing to be given a price that I truly couldn't afford and spending the day feeling all sad & depressed cause I couldn't buy this sweet table...you KNOW that feeling! She turned and said...are you ready for this???...Twenty dollars! Yes, that's right, $20.00!!! Still trying for nonchalance, my left hand is trying to rip my wallet out of my overstuffed purse so I can hand her a twenty before she changes her mind!! So, gals, was it worth it? Yes!! Is this the sweetest enameled top table you have ever seen? Yes!! Am I thinking I got the deal of the day...week...month...maybe even the year? YES!! Will I be able to find a home for it in my single wide mobile, even if it means busting out a wall?? YES!!!! So the sweet table is in my best friend's shed until I can find room...and I'll probably be stopping every morning for a visit...I just hope I don't have to sue for custody when it's time to bring it home. :o} Have a great Friday...there are quite a few sales this weekend. Am I going to hit some on the way to work? YES!!! *elaine*
