Another crazy Craigslist score!

Do you guys remember just 2 weeks ago I mentioned I was envious of
this fabulous Lutyen's garden bench we ordered for my client?

I've NEVER seen one on Craigslist, and on Sunday evening I happened to be
 looking for a bench for another client's dining room and look what I come across!!!

Seriously, C-R-A-Z-Y!!!

And, it turned out to be the most fun Craigslist pick up ever!

A darling lady was selling it, and her property was SO charming I couldn't help
 but ask if she'd give me a tour (outside) and if I could feature her on my blog.
She was so gracious and said, "Yes" to both! :)
The impeccable grounds oozed of creativity and inspiration at every turn.
 It was a delight hearing how it evolved over the years, and of the special family
celebrations she'd hosted,
I asked why she was selling the bench, and she replied,
"I'm a big Craigslister and found a new one. I sell things so I'm not a hoarder."

(Ha! I should take note!)

My bench is going to get a new paint job - I think the pretty silhouette will
show up best against our white house in glossy black.
I can't wait to get started!

I bought one identical to this one at auction a few years ago for I think $20! It proudly resides on my front porch.

Can't wait to see yours...I know it will be beautiful!

It will look perfect in your patio or garden Pam!

Great find and can't wait for the post on her garden.

I would love a post on how you search Craigslist! I search everyday and never find gems like this. It's the same crap over and over or they want $$$.

Love the bench. I've got to get on Craig's list more often. Have a great weekend.
