"I knew it was for you when she showed you the key!"


That was a quote by hubby...when we came across the gorgeous trunk...He said..."all she had to do was bring out the key Martha, and I knew you were sold!"

In my quest to bring home a desk I had my eye on for a bit...and since hubby had the day off yesterday I asked if we could take a trip to a new store I came across a couple of months ago to pick up that lovely desk...it was perfect...not to big...not to small....some drawers that I really loved because they were pretty and functional for my business...

But we came to realize "you should never WAIT when you find something you love!"....because it was gone...S.O.L.D! I took a deep breathe and moved on to then find a nightstand for Bobby's side of the bed...nope...nada...zilch...but we stopped by a new store we hadn't noticed before....and we fell in love with something else....


"We" was the key word in that last sentence...because it was "WE"...I haven't seen Bobby get so excited about a purchase to-date yet...it was beautiful... gorgeous...and perfect just the way it was...

When you have the history with items...I think all the better...Bobby loves that part too...the trunk was made 75 years ago by a Dad to his Daughter...and she was selling it because well her and her husband are selling everything since they are retired to travel the country and purchase a vehicle to do so...

And you honestly don't want to even know what we paid for this trunk...it was such a GREAT price which made all the decision easier...even though I was sold on it the moment I saw there was a key lock!

We both are swoony-eyed...and it is sitting at the foot of our bed right now...we are in love with our new lovely...
