French chair, I think????

WHEW, today was a long, treasure huntin' day....  1st Goodwill Outlet we shopped for about 2 hours, when getting into line, the power flickers...everybody was like, whew, glad it's back on (I was thinking they would start looting other people carts for treasure) but it knocked out their computers/registers and their ability to take credit/debit cards :(    CASH ONLY, what, I never carry cash... so I had to schleep out to a gas station, pay a crazy ATM fee + $2 from my bank but it was sooo worth it... here's the teaser- black toile quilt, lobster like crate, creamy pin=tuck comforter w/2 shams, 2 more IronStone Blue & White plates, glass cloche, Ball Jar Pitcher, a full bolt/spool of Jute Rope, some cleats, vintage baby dresses, and some more what-nots... and a wonderful loveseat that matches the style of my family room couch, $4.50 just needs a tad of cleaning on the edges...WOO HOO

came home, unloaded & rested for a bit....left Loveseat outside planned on cleaning it with my little Mean Green Machine when I got back from Round 2, so it would dry out quickly, it was only 95 today.

Off to GW Outlet #2, where I had to wait on a cart but saw them rolling this little beauty out and I pounced...and got it...then found another quilt in tans, blues & greens perfect for a boy's room... had Things 1 & 2 sitting guard on them while I hunted...I paid them $2 each to keep watch & boy did that make them happy!

The clerk rang it up for $3.50, I was soo's in perfect shape but the black leather stuff if coming off....BAD so it's gonna be fun getting that off of there... Things 1&2 had loads of fun sharing the back seat with it and we had to drive like that for a while...hey I paid them for it!!!

I was thinking it's a French chair but not sure now since I can't find one similiar on Miss Mustard Seed's blog (see does tons of French Chairs)

 While we were still out & about... I get a call from my dad saying it's thundering around home...I look at the sky & I watched the weather...clear as a bell....I hustle home anyway...get to my grid in Decatur TWP & it looked like a tornado had hit different parts, tree limbs & leaves everywhere but the streets were dry??? stop lights out & asked a Power Company worker if our whole area's out..he said yes & it would be a while... luckily our neighborhood has power...and then I pulled in the poor, soaking wet loveseat was sitting I got out the Mean Green Machine and got to work...but it's still soaking wet & more rain is on the way tonight so Lovey is in the garage getting air dried with a fan and my car is out for the night...

Now, I'm tired & it's off to bed...

Nite Nite, Sleep Tight, don't let the BedBugs bite

    The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
