When you need an item for your house, do you search and search non-stop until you find it?Â Or do you simply keep an eye open, knowing that the right thing will cross your path eventually but you can’t push it?Â I’m in the latter group.Â Two days ago, I splurged on some tulips at the grocery.Â The only vase they really fit in was this old metal coffeepot with a wooden handle.Â A few hours later, my new dining room chairs arrived.Â They are even better in person, and I love the way they look with the wood table my great great grandfather made.Â It was like the coffee pot and the tulips knew they were coming and urged me to put them on top before they arrived.
oops, obviously I got too excited about taking the picture and missed a tag – tacky!
I have to give major props to decorators who can throw a room together in a short time frame.Â I have to be patient – my dining room has been without proper chairs for almost two years, but it was worth the wait!Â Now if I could just find the perfect light fixture (over the tulips, wires have been hanging from the ceiling for 2 years)…do you guys have any suggestions?Â I don’t want a drum shade or a chandelier.Â Perhaps a lantern, or ideally, one of those amazing fixtures from South of Market, you know, where they turn a French trash can or basket into some awesome and unique light fixture and charge $2,000 for it?Â I need the cheap version of that!
