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!!!
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!
