you paid what?

If you have been a reader of mine for any length of time, you know that I LOVE auctions. Did I emphasize that word LOVE enough? I not only go to auctions for my business, but I am also able to find things at really good prices for myself. 

I don't often shop for furniture, but a couple of months ago there was a wood dressing table that I wanted to purchase and use for a desk in my bedroom. It was perfect and so I went back in the evening for the furniture sale. I'll share that at a later date, but what I want to BRAG ABOUT share today is one of the other things I got. Can you tell that I am still giddy even after two months?

Yes, it has wonderful white chippy paint,


and beautiful predominately blue floral print fabric.


You may have already guessed that it is a fabulous wicker chair.


I believe it dates from the 1930s to 1940s and it is in great condition. 

This pillow I bought from a thrift store is perfect on it.


So I stole paid what for this chair?


FIVE DOLLARS!!! Yes, you heard me correctly. FIVE DOLLARS!!!  It would be hard to top that deal.

I'll show you where I put it when I share my desk. That's a hint.
