auction preview

 











here's what's up for auction at my local place tomorrow.  i REALLY REALLY REALLY to the hundred millionth degree want that leather sofa up there.  but i've been having bad auction luck lately.  plus it will definitely be more expensive than i can swing. 

except sometimes i don't let that stop me. 

except for real right now i am trying to just appreciate what i have rather than look to the next thing i want. 

except that is hard and sometimes sucks. 

except i'm still going to try. 

except i probably won't succeed.

Oh I wish you get that sofa! I've got a crush on that green cabinet -- would drop everything to go with you to that auction if it weren't for the fact that I live in SEATTLE! Cheers!

I can't help it, I am sending you good vibes to bring home that sofa tomorrow. Why? because it looks like the kind of gorgeous thing you will have forever & hand down to your kiddos and you looooove it. So, naturally I want you to have it! sorry...;( I am no help in the "no buying" category! (fingers crossed)

Oh man. That sofa is definitely great. I get so stressed at auctions! I'm just not the competitive type and I take hours to decide on how much I'm willing to pay. Eek.

I want that leather couch, too. Wish I could find something like it here in Brooklyn that was actually affordable. Hope you get it!
