Evidence of a small world....

When I moved the rather large TV armoire out of my living room so I could rearrange and make room for the smaller, cuter one, I parked it temporarily on the front porch. When a woman I have known for a long time stopped by to pick up her slipcovered ottoman, she said "If you don't want that anymore, I think I know someone who might be able to use it." I was thrilled. I traded some sewing labor for it (used) about 12 years ago and since it doesn't even have a real back on it, I didn't want to sell it. Her friend turned out to be Susi who owns my favorite flower shop. She will be using it for storage at her shop and she gave me a beautiful "thank you" bouquet of flowers.

After I had my yard sale from a couple of posts back, I put some of the items that didn't sell on Craigs List, and Susi contacted me about my tables, not knowing it was me. We both laughed. She bought them to use in her shop.
So of course I had to take a field trip and take some pictures. She didn't have this table in the shop yet:

But this one fits right in.

Her tiny shop is filled with great stuff. It's one of the places I suggest to my family when they are looking for a gift for me.

Of course I had to buy something while I was there. I got this nice stand to put something on. (Christmas decorations maybe?) And some fireplace matches for my lovebird.

Oh yes, I also finally sold that checked slipper chair (not to Susi). After being in two shops and one yardsale it finally has a new home.

More and more I am convinced that this is the smallest of small worlds.... and all roads lead to CriagsList. Funny story.

I find these kinds of coincidences occuring with more frequency the older I get. Maybe gray hairs are like antenna.

What a beautiful shop your friend has. So glad your pieces fit in there.

Yes, sometimes the world is small. What a great shop she has and your table fits right in!
