Apparently so do a lot of other people...So if you could just make sure I win this bid, I'd really appreciate it. I hate it when those assholes other people outbid me at the last minute, and I know they're using an illegal program to do too! We can call it a birthday gift?
Since I seem to be obsessed with so many things these days I thought I would start this as a series on my blog. Current obsession, dining chairs!
I've been faithfully checking CL everyday looking for the perfect chairs but so far no dice. My dining room is almost complete and everything else I want has been chosen except for this crucial element. I know I said I would buy these chairs from my company, Aidan Gray, but I really want to do a print on them and it kills me to spend the money to rip apart a perfectly good chair and spend more money to recover them so I'm still on the hunt. I really want a clean line so I think a King Louis chair would be perfect. It's doubtful I'll find that on Craigslist!
I've posted this before but I really love the chair on the end here. I want King Louis chairs in the middle and something more decorative on the ends.
Love the upholstered yellow chairs!
I'll take that chandelier group, thanks...
Wouldn't these be fun?
What kind of chairs do you have? Did you paint/upholster?
Scott and I had two weekends of wonderful family weddings, first his brother, then mine. It was so nice to see all our family and have time catch up with relatives we don't get to see often enough.
Scott's brother Kevin and his now wife Stephanie were married on May 29th at a beautiful vineyard in Grapevine, Texas. The wedding was designed by Steph and her mom and the theme can be loosely described as Texas-sophisticated. Everyone wore cowboy boots including the bride and the reception was in a barn. The color theme was black and white with small touched of green, always a winning combination.
Scott wore these same cufflinks for our wedding. They are from the typewriter of their grandfather.
Love the boot picture!
The evening light was amazing. Don't be fooled, it was hot!
I know some people don't but I love sun spots in a picture and this one is awesome!
They had these lanterns hanging in the trees, so pretty.
I wish I had picture of the tables to show you. They had white linens with crumpled burlap in the center with glass jars full of candles, and pretty floral centerpieces.
It's official, today I'm nine thousand one hundred and twenty five days old! You could also call me a quarter of a century old, two and a half decades, thirteen million one hundred and fourty thousand minutes, which ever way you want to put it, it's my birthday!
Guess where I'll be spending my birthday? I'll give you a hint...
That's right, New York City baby! I'll be here visiting friends and eating cupcakes from Magnolia bakery, going to not one, but two flea markets (brooklyn and chealsea) for a whole 5 days!
Do you buy yourself presents for your birthday? I sure do! I'm hoping to get myself these...
