More of something is sometimes a beautiful thing- particularly in the case of either wine or butter (though not together, well, together in perhaps a meal but not in a glass).
With the grandparents move to the coast this summer I took the opportunity to adopt some family pieces up for grabs for the nursery for Mr. Wonderful-due-to-arrive-this-early-fall. So, note that one of the pics above is a sneak peek of the nursery prior to it’s paint job and new fan installation and of course hanging things and rearranging the furniture so things aren’t staged against the walls like a bad sixth grade dance and, yes, that’s a seersucker sports coat for him-he already has social obligations next Spring and Summer so, naturally, he needed something natty to wear.
Leave it to my family, things started out with “I’d love a twin big boy bed for the nursery.” to “Sure, I’ll take both and the matching nightstand.” and escalated to “Yes, I’d love two twin beds, two dressers, an arm chair and a mirror all in solid maple as well as a funky vintage reading chair and ottoman.”- which they took to ALSO mean that they would be sneaking in two lamps and two complete designer picked out and custom made chintz bed sets complete with blankets and pillows. . . .AND in my zipping home to let Miss Mabel Merry Lou out in the yard for a few moments between appointments noticed the box number seemed off and I spotted a box of “French prints.” Classic.Jolly.Johnson.Family.Fun.
Your favorite Realtor may be in need of an extra wing on the home or, if you stop by for dinner, in addition to a doggy bag of leftovers to carry home, you may also be leaving with an end table.
