The One That Got Away

I had been eyeing this faux fireplace at a local antique store.  Please excuse the quality of the image.  It was taken with my iPhone when I was love-struck.


It was selling for $245, which is a steal for such a large, quality piece.  Had I bought the wood to make this (not that I’d tackle such project), it would cost more than that on lumber.  But I decided not to get it when I went because… well, because I was dumb.  I thought I’d be strategic and come back a few weeks later and offer $200.  How dumb was I??!!  That was a great price to start with but I tend to be cheap a haggler.  When I went back, it was SOLD!!  As you can see, my strategies don’t always work.  

Moral of the story?  If you see something you love, BUY IT!  Buy it right there and then and don’t look back. Pin It

I cannot tell you how many times that's happened to me! I always have to tell myself that it just wasn't meant to be. But I do try to follow that rule, if I'm out & I love it & just can't leave without it (and can't put it on hold)...

Love your blog! :)

Thank you, Mandy! I looked thru your blog a little bit. It looks great!! I don't have time this second but I look forward to going thru it more thoroughly tonight (when my little ones are down).
