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!

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 $$$.
