Should I or Shouldn't I???

Some Saturdays are a complete bust, while others have my head in a tailspin.  I'm usually a very decisive individual, but on these particular days, I find myself asking over and over, "Should I or Shouldn't I?".  And if you're like me, the clock is ticking and the next treasure is only a yardsale away, or possibly across the street.  Today was one of those days.  SOOOOO many great treasures to be found at the flea and various yardsales.  Of course I will post about them all this coming week, but I just couldn't wait to share my most favorite find of the the day and perhaps of all time.


Aren't they divine????  A pair of antique French Country nightstands with hardly a scratch on either one.  The hardware is original and there is so much beautiful carved detail.

I spotted them a thousand and one miles away at the flea market.  The seller was nowhere to be found (don't you hate it when that happens) and as I waited, a few more people spotted them and also wanted to know the price.  Of course I wasn't about to have any of that, so I got my Jersey on and became very territorial.  Then walked away with them both for the Zippity-Doo-Dah-price of $100!!!  Yay me!

So the answer to the question in my title was a resounding YES!!

Hope you are all enjoying an equally delightful week.
xoxo,
Kim
