She had me at hello…

I spied her across the room the second I stepped into my favorite thrift store.


Her petite frame was perfect just the right the size. The tufting added that element of glam that I adore. The fabric felt amazing and had a great you must cuddle with me vibe. Ah her feet sealed the deal.


I don’t need her in my home or for a client. I went to check out her price and fell over in excitement! She is a Martha Stewart for Bernhardt piece and only $198.


I know I don’t need her, but she is hopefully coming home with me tomorrow. It took me about 2 seconds to convince my mom she had to have her so that I can visit with my new friend.


We are going first thing tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed she didn’t go home with someone else.

I really love a sofa or loveseat with one cushion - did not even realize it until recently. This one is a beauty.

Thank you for the comment on my 'Glee' post. I smiled when I read it - I am a Gossip Girl, Glee, and Twilight addicted woman in my late 30s, and not sorry for it! I am thrilled to know I am not alone in my generational confusion. Then again, I loved the show 'thirty-something' when I was in my late teens/early 20s.

Love it! Thrift stores are my favorite not-so-guilty pleasure. Hopefully it's still there for you tomorrow! If I were you I'd probably be thinking about while I tried to fall asleep tonight; I hate to let things get away!

I think that might be one of my favorite stores, near my family's house on LI. Let me know! That would be too funny.

You want to visit it, that is so funny! I'm curious if you asked how it got there. Did a store donate it? It's hard to believe anyone would give it away.
