I have fallen madly in love…with this nightstand. I wanted to show you the picture of the sides (because they are painted too) but I could not figure out how to “steal” that picture. This is why I should have never started re-decorating. It started out with a sweet gift, but now I’ve started looking, and you know what that leads to don’t you…FINDING. I can’t find things! I am not ALLOWED. There is no money for such FRIVOLITY!
But somehow I don’t care. When I love, I love hard, and I am afraid I’ve got this little baby in my sights. I saw her and she said, “Don’t you want to lay your old book on me each night, just before you turn out the light? Don’t you want to tuck your embroidery inside my little drawers? Don’t you think I would look just perfect nestled next to your new bedding?” I am serious; she said all of those things.
I called to talk to my best friend about it this morning. I told her that I knew I couldn’t have it now, but I have bookmarked the page, and I am just going to keep an eye on her until something happens…like she goes on MAJOR sale. I was hoping Whitney would have told me that was a good idea. Lay low, keep your eyes peeled. BUT SHE DIDN’T. She said, “What if they sell out before you can buy her? If you love it THAT much, you should just go ahead and get it.” Great advice Whit! Where did you earn your Money Management degree? 🙂 It probably is a good idea to spend BORROWED MONEY to buy a NIGHTSTAND.
So I’ve been stewing over it. My friend Darby had a big garage sale to buy the camera she wanted…and it worked. To me, this offers a model example of what a good responsible person should do if they truly want something…WORK FOR IT. Then, how much sweeter is the purchase, when you know that you sweated out every dollar? I created an Etsy page a while back, in hopes of selling some of those little dresses I embroidered for the girls. I haven’t ever told y’all about it, partly because it makes my stomach curdle to try to sell anything to anybody. Being a salesman is my worst nightmare. But maybe this Love of Nightstand will be the stimulus to go ahead and put myself out there. We’ll see. I do love her…
