Easy come easy go

See this gorgeous black and white zebra print occasional chair. I had it in my very clutches yesterday morning at Luckys. Or a least I thought I did. Last week when Lou and I were shopping we ran across this baby for $199 which I thought was a pretty good deal. However, I really didn't need it nor was I wanting to spend that kind of money before Christmas. Well, lo and behold.....they had one a Luckys yesterday morning. Are you ready for the price! Drum Roll please............$40! HEAVENS TOO BETSY!!! Did someone say $40. Yep! I found it in the back on a pallet that still had lots of boxes of furniture in shrink wrap. I told Lucky I wanted it and he said he would have it ready for me to pick up in a couple of hours. He wouldn't let me pay for it because he wanted to make sure it was salvagable first. No problem. I came home found the perfect place for my $40 chair. Called Lou and bragged a little! Called Lucky about 11:00 and heard the dreaded words.......it was broken beyond repair. Well fiddle dee dee! What's a girl to do......go back again this afternoon to see if there might be another one. This chick ain't given up until she finds another one.......come on girls, the hunt is on!!!!
Since we're on the subject of black and white. Just look at my little darling "Boscoe". I walked in this morning to find him all cozied up. He ain't worried about no ole black and white chair! But wait! The could be another cozy place upon which to place his lanky body. Oh, wouldn't he be cute laying in that black and white chair!!!


Girls, I don't know about ya'll but I am revived up like a full blown hot rod engine today. My mind is going ninety to nothin, just wish my body would catch up with it. Gotta run! Ya'll have a wonderful day. And if you happen to see that dadgum black and white zebra print chair running around for $40, be sure and catch it for me. LOL!!!

Yeah..that chair is hot...and for $40 bucks it would have been the deal of the century. Hopefully you'll stumble upon another one!
