Yes! I have added a new addition to my teapot collection and I am sure it does not surprise anyone at all. However – it isn’t a teapot I can drink from. I’ve got you all wondering now, right?
Rewind to a couple of weeks ago when I was scrolling Facebook first thing in the morning. We have a ton of great thrift shops around town and one of the best is the SAFE Attic / Interiors shop located in the College Plaza strip mall on Broad Street in Brevard. I love looking at the items they have for sale and they are really good about sharing new items on their Facebook page. Well, the day I was scrolling I hit gold when I saw the first item they had listed.
I basically planned my day around my visit to the store because I did not want anyone else to get the jump on me on this one. When I walked in the store I saw “it” right in the front of the store. I may have heard angels sing. Oh wait –that might have been Kristen Bernard who was working in the store that day.
But whatever – you can see how I was drawn into this second hand beauty.
I sat in it, smelled it, inspected it and deemed it worthy of coming home with me.
When I went back to pick it up after I had emptied all the book donations out of the back of my Subaru, Kristen helped me get it to the car. Now let me tell you -she is a really sweet person and come to find out she is a blogger as well. Of course we exchanged cards and her blog – Seeding the Soul- is lovely. Check it out by clicking the link.
I KNEW it would fit –we just had to remove the legs and angle it in a little bit and sure enough – it fit.
I got it home and Chris helped me move it into our bedroom while I relocated the other chair I had in there. Of course it did not stay empty for long.
I absolutely love it and love that I supported the victims of domestic violence while making the purchase at SAFE. Definitely a win win.
However – it seems that I have to fight for time in my chair.
