LOVE the beautiful birdcage. I love birds and use them in my own home, so I am especially fond of this.
I also have a very good weekend find, this one from Craigslist. We have an extra room (I call it my daybed room) which we have been trying to set up as our first grandchild's room away from home when he arrives in September. Soooo, for months I've been looking for a small upholstered swivel rocker for that room without success. Most of the upholstered rockers are HUGE these days. Anyway, I was browsing Craigslist again this weekend and saw this rocking chair an ottoman which turned out to be perfect. It was in a formal living room which was never used and from a non-smoking - no pets home. Even better, I paid $40 for both pieces and only had to drive 15 miles to pick it up. Score!!
I have to say how much I miss seeing these pictures! But I'm stopping in briefly to show a bargain fabric win from eBay. Pics are from the auction, but it just arrived and is even cuter in person, and a nice home dec weight. 5 yards of 54" wide vintage Bloomcraft fabric for $7.99. I like all dog breeds - they don't have to be Brittanys. Mario Buatta would love this fabric.
BDM,thank you for sharing even if you can't see the other pics. We LOVE seeing yours! I adore that fabric and that price is unreal. The dogs amongst the pink is awesome. Where do you plan to use it? Lucky girl, it's beautiful.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Skyler,
Lady 50, I forgot to ask if you bought the chair to match the drapes or you bought the drapes after the chair? The colors look like they match so well.
Skyler, I actually bought the linen curtains several months ago at West Elm in Dallas. I just happened upon a sale there. They were originally priced at $50 per panel, but I got all four for $50. I honestly got very lucky on the chair matching the drapes. The daybed quilt was also another totally unrelated purchase. It's probably best to have a decorating plan in place before you start buying, but deep discount shopping doesn't always allow for that. I take photos of my rooms on my iphone when I shop. That helps alot.
I don't have a picture (you'll thank me) but, I gave birth to my very first (and hopefully, last) kidney stone! After my CT scan, they announced the results like this..."you're now the proud parent of 4 kids and a kidney stone". Funny.
Anyhoo, after 60 or so hours, I caught the little bugger and now I wait to find out what caused it so I can avoid another.
I realize this isn't your typical "find" but, I wanted to share with my cyber friends. Aincha glad? LOL

We found some driftwood that we watched wash in with the tide from way out in the water. The log was hollow and when my husband pulled it on shore an long piece broke off and we brought it home... Now what should we do with it?
