love at first sight

Gigi and I have several items to share with you all tomorrow in our first blog sale!  In the meantime, I'll share a couple of the pieces I happened upon this week...

First.. love within my reach...



At some point along the way, Gigi imparted a bit of knowledge... a rooster in the kitchen brings good luck!  Gigi's good guidance came to mind when I saw this beauty of a tray at the Flea Market over the weekend.  I didn't hold onto it at first; however, I knew that was a poor decision when I felt a pang of jealousy as someone picked it up to give it the once over.  I owe my sweet, sweet friend, KAB, a huge thank you for encouraging me to take this one home for only $8.

Then... love just beyond my reach...


Not long after we found the rooster tray, I spotted it.  I'm not sure if it stopped me dead in my tracks and I then approached it or if I immediately walked towards it in "where's the fire" fashion.  A twelve-drawer metal card catalog... five pieces of gloriousness... my mind was racing.  Each drawer could stow items for each month of the year, bottles of wine, crafting supplies... the possibilities were endless.  Sadly, the seller crushed my dreams when I asked how much.  Though Gigi said it probably wasn't a bad price, it was love just beyond my reach.
