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?
