Is it stunning or WHAT?!
One doesn't even have to leave the couch to get another "refreshing beverage"!
And here is the "ME" part. Hepcat and the Adorable Mz. Kitty were by my place Saturday morning to pick up a stunning but needing a full "face lift", 1950's desk by Paul Laszlo for Brown-Saltman that he is going to restore & use in their new bedroom. It's a project I'm going to be watching carefully and with great anticipation. Anyway, they told me there was a yard sale around the corner from me - HOW did I miss that?! So I cruise on over only to find a few old toys and a ton of plant pots, none of which I was a bit interested in. Disappointed, I headed back down the driveway when the lady asked me what sort of things I'm looking for. Nothing in particular I tell her but not toys or planters. But she for some reason persisted so I told her my interest is mostly mid century furniture and accessories. Wellll, says she, let me show you something in the garage. I thought it odd that she was so persistent about what I was looking for, and still do, but I'm thinking it was a divine blessing and meant to be. Here it is, MY new kitchen light fixture!
Is it FABULOUS or what?!
I tend not to keep the treasures I find because well, I just can't - I'm supposed to be downsizing, not upsizing! But this is the exception. It pulls down from a cord on the ceiling to any length you desire and It will go in the kitchen breakfast area over the table, front & center of a large window facing the front of the house - so everyone can see it and be jealous ;- )
So that's my "partial" story of the weekend. I'm off to Folsom to work the day. It's GORGEOUS weather in Sacto., CA today (SEVENTY-FOUR degrees!!!) and I suspect it will be a busy - (and hopefully lucrative!) day.
