On Saturday morning i hit the local St Vinnies with my lovely mummsy, for their MEGA Sale (they have it twice a year and its HUUUUGEEEEEEEE).
Sooo much stuff....tables of stuff...ahhh it's surely a junkin gals heaven. Mum was finding treasures left right and centre it tell ya! Every time i turned around she had another piece of somen' sweet in her arms! LOL. I found a few goodies myself after a while...well actually i spotted lots of things i could have bought but i was being good and waiting.....waiting...waiting...for that certain something...i'd know it when i saw it, surely it would call out to me........AND THEN IT DID !
Tucked away amongst the odds and ends..i first saw a glimpse of the back of it and i was immediately curious...i swear i knocked more than a few people over as i raced to get to it....I was like a crazy woman. A crazy woman on a mission!
Finally i made it around to the front....
I grabbed my mobile phone and snapped a quick blurry piccie of the item that had stolen my heart...


It was love at first sight....and for only $40.00 it was ETERNAL LOVE at that!

after literally climbing over a pile of 'stuff' and almost impaling myself to get to it (oh but it was so worth it), i sent mum off with my cash to pay for my new best friend while i 'protected' her and hissed at anyone who dared to come to close..LOL.
Now i have this gorgeous piece at home with me...


Even Shane was impressed...i didn't even get the usual "Oh great, where do you think you're gonna fit that?"
Ahhhh see, our lovely French Friend was meant to be with us!

I cant stop looking at her....oh and she goes BEAUTIFULLY with my new lounges (remember the gorgeous blue ones i posted about a while back???...Well they are here now!. Piccies next time!)

Ummm anyone else see a French Provincial theme creeping in here..???


Okies im off to go and look at my table again..heehee.

Hope you all had a great Halloween! I will post piccies of mine and Sam's costumes in a few days!

Au Revoir

(see, more french stuff...*wink*)

Pink Kisses,

Linda said...

Hi Shannon,
Just catching up with all of your news, wow I have missed a lot, firstly looooove your table it is beautiful, don't you love it when you find something new and can't help but look at it all day. LOL And how scary been bitten by a huntsman, my youngest was bitten by one a few years ago and I rang a few people to find out if he would have any sideaffects as he was only 7 at the time a guy at the uni that studies spiders told me that they are totally harmless and that it is rare for them to even bit so you have just joined an exclusive club of people bitten by large huntsman spiders and lived to tell the tale. LOL
Cheers Linda

Donna said...

Oh, what a bargain! And it is DIVINE!

Bek said...

Sue Jackson said...

Hi Shannon,
Thanks for the nice comments on my blog, especially in regards to Prop 8! I've never understood predjudiced people and discrimination and to me, by voting yes, it says its okay to discriminate. Let's hope today that we really get some hope for the future. You have a beautiful blog by the way! take care, Sue

Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage said...
