I was driving down the road...

My poor husband. He knows that the moment I utter those words, there will be some large piece of junk  following close behind. I can't help myself. Stuff on the side of the road calls me. Haunts me. But this - THIS! I have been looking for this for a year or more. Ever since my sister gave me my mother's china. Granted, my mother bought it a piece at a time at the grocery store when I was a kid, but still, it was our china, and it deserves respect. Enter respect - found on the side of the road. I admit, I did pay money for it, but it is so perfect I was more then happy to fork over the $25.

It's almost like I have gone and grown up or something.

Tres chic shabbiness, complete with predistressed edges. And didn't I hear somewhere (everywhere) that aqua is the Pantone's color of the year?

I think that means I can wait until next year to refinish it. I'm not really a shabby chic kind of girl. I do love aqua, though. Oh, and did I mention it dragged a buddy along to my house, too?


  1. Oh no that's no fair. American furniture is to cool. I LOVE IT xx

  2. You sound just like me, and my Hubby is WORSE, he goes to the Township Clean Up day and DRAGS MORE STUFF HOME THAN HE TAKES OVER THERE. I have to admit he brings home some good stuff. :) I think it is a disease don't you????

  3. This is really awesome!! Have fun with it!! :)

  4. Love it! Totally worth stopping to get it.

  5. 25 flippin' bucks?!? Even in our crapiest of crap junk stores (here in California)they would want your firstborn for that piece. Love it!
