A Little Florentine for Me

A funny thing happened when I went to a fundraising lunch and silent auction last week.  I bought this cute little Florentine table.  Actually, I had bid on it, but wasn't paying attention when the bidding closed.  I stood in the check out line to see if I was the high bidder on anything and was told that I was not.  I was a little sad, because the table was cute, but had moved on.


Later that evening, I got a message that I had actually won the table.  A mistake had been made at check out.  My neighbor had picked it up for me. So here it is in it's new home.


It is marked "Made in Italy. 1927."


It is happy with all the gold touches around it.



So our living room is a little more eclectic than it already was.  I think that's a good thing.

Heartfully,
Eilis

    Sometimes mistakes can be a good thing. :) So glad your neighbor was able to bring it to you. It just fits right into your home.
