i am sure some of you are gonna be like, fuck jenny...just get back to cussing and pretty rooms and farts and downton.
and i concur.
that's all i want more than anything.
it's getting there.
i still have so many emails to return and i want to reiterate that if you haven't heard from me yet, i am working my way down a long list of amazing people.
slowly but surely.
i will never let you forget how grateful we are for your kindness and generosity.
this weekend is a long one- fiona off from school friday and monday.
so correspondence will be slow.
i wanted to deliver this craigslist post that i intended for friday.
while it would make sense to do it this coming friday i am afraid that if i wait then the items i found will be gone.
and that would suck ding dongs.
plus, well....i just want life to be business as usual.
so where alaska failed in so many ways, arizona makes up for it like a boss.
phoenix, az killed it...
antique ming chair- $145.
this is pretty ya'll.
faux bamboo mirror- $20.
this would be so perfect in a powder room or an entry.
pair of yellow lamps- $80.
go get these!!!
chinese plant stand- $150.
that's kind of a ridiculous price for the list.
the lamp person is selling some good shit.
how fantastic is this?
even the upholstery is awesome.
imagine it against a glistening chocolate lacquered wall.
i don't have a bar or a place to put these but i wear them on my face.
$75 for the pair.
i would put this on my porch and have lots of wine and food there.
alternatively i would hijack those chairs for my indoor dining table.
2 brass side tables- $35.
what's not to love?
a whole bunch of mid cenury goodness.
$800 for everything.
inquire about splitting it up.
tufted chesterfield- $800.
also it's microfiber.
which is not leather.
brass sofa table- $40.
hand painted french vases- $50.
shiny red industrial cart.
great for art supplies or bath-time lotions and stuff or bar things.
drexel buffet/credenza- $260.
how great is this?
for under your TV? or in your dining room?
lots of storage there.
i would paint it glossy white. yep. boring but great.
italian bombe chest- $145.
the finish is questionable.
but you could do so much with it.
delicious la barge brass coffee table- $295
i would try and negotiate that price down to 200 and then you will have scored.
that price is for that recliner thing.
but i would def. inquire about that headboard and nightstand.
big ornate mirror- $75.
perfect little parsons chair- $40.
metal bamboo leaf lamp- $25.
1970's nightstands- $100.
french gold leaf bombe chest- $1200.
if i had 1200 extra lying around i probably would also have a dressing room situation and that is where i would put this.
because it's real pretty.
or it would make a spectacular desk.
ok this yes.
for sure for sure buy this.
pretty good right?
next week is tuscon.
because arizona is clearly a top notch craig state.
also- downton tonight.
the last episode.
i am excited and sad.
matthew better put his meat stick in mary and make a baby.
also, and this is no joke..
i had a sex dream last night about maggie smith and some other older actress...i can't remember who it was..
but there was a 'your (wrinkly) body is a wonderland' moment between the 3 of us.
