I love cruising for vintage finds on my local Craigslist, but I do get annoyed when people write things like "Gorgeous!" or "Classy!" or "antique" when the item is none of the above. I sometimes flag these for removal just on principle.
Anyhoo... This ad for a rug caught my eye today:
♥GORGEOUS Oriental Wool Floral Rug S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G♥ - $350 (Puyallup)
With all those hearts and dashes and ALL CAPS and claims of gorgeousness, well, I just knew it had to be something special. Boy was it.
Look at that room! Seriously. It's like a time-capsule of awesomeness. The symmetry. The matchiness. The SETS of stuff. Magical.
And those lamps. You so want to snicker right now, but you know in some weird future reality, people will be blogging about the return of Reagan-era grandma chic and how they can't believe anyone would toss those lamps.
After all, those elephants are having a comeback. Why shouldn't the rest of the room?
