love at first sight: sold

 My heart began to beat a little bit faster when I spotted these most perfect carved wooden panels.  I honestly wasn't even sure what they were originally used for, I only knew that I wanted them... as a headboard, as art, as...   
... perhaps you noticed the rope and the sold sign in the picture...  
Unfortunately, I was not the buyer.  I was too late.  
Sad, sad day.

The panels looked very similar to these doors...

Imagine them in white like these pretty french doors. 

Sadly, the wooden panels won't be getting a Splash of Lime makeover.  At the risk of sounding dramatic, love lost.  For as long as Gigi and I have been doing this, we've become accustomed to falling hard for pieces we never even knew we wanted and may not ever have...

The happy news... Gigi is looking for more carved door panels and I feel good about our chances...
