Kicking myself

This past weekend my mom and I hit up some estate sales.  I scored loads of goodies (which I have to take pictures and post), but there are a few items that I'm kicking myself for not scoping up!!  Can you guess what items I didn't buy?

If you didn't already guess, the answers are gold flatware and a set of black chinoiserie chairs.  The gold flatware was actually gold vermeil, but who cares.  It was a steal for a 5-piece setting for 12 people WITH a serving set!  The chairs look more like the armless chairs shown with the dining set, but they would have looked good flanking a console table in an entry.  Oh well....I will always find more things I don't need.  I plan on going estate-saling (yes, i used it as a verb) this weekend too.  :-)  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Not just any folding chair...

While perusing the Ballard Design's website today, I noticed these lovies for half of the original price.  I've mentioned several times for my love of all things faux bamboo, and these were no exception.  These chairs would be perfect for someone with a small studio/apartment, who loves to entertain and throw dinner parties.

Only color left - gold!  Perfect!

Alfresco, please.

Atlanta is still having highs in the 80's, and I'm taking full advantage of it.  One of my favorite things to do during nice weather is to dine alfresco.  Good food and good weather?  What could be better? In the last three days, I've eaten as least three meals outside......I don't plan on breaking this streak anytime soon.

Do you all enjoy dining alfresco as much as I do?

I not saying....

I'm just saying....that this cologne is a-mazing! 

The other week one of R's friends wore it and I was constantly smelling him.   Yes, leaning in smelling him.  Not ashamed.  It was is that good.

Dressing for the weather

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I've been under the weather, so I haven't been up for much of anything.  However, mi madre and I did go to Scott's Antique Market this past weekend.  We didn't find too much we couldn't live without, and because I'm suckie blogger I forgot to take pictures of our adventure.  I know, I was disappointed too when I remembered I didn't take any pictures.  I will do better next time.  Promise. 

In Atlanta, it will be in the 70's and 80's this ENTIRE week, and since I live for this kind of weather, I'm going to round-up some maxi dresses that really should be in my closet.

Hope everyone is having a warm week too!
