Lady Luck Strikes Twice!



Would you believe...


I found this,


or rather, I found this lady,


who found this in the same thrift store where I scored my Williams Sonoma Home sofa last week!



I went back the other day and was circling the store when I spied this roll of matching fabric.



I proceeded to tell her that I bought the sofa that matched her fabric a few days earlier.



I asked her if she wanted to sell it.




We struck a deal and then spent the next hour becoming friends.  

The real treasure was Helen, the fabric was just the catalyst that brought us together!


New treasure just listed at 
IL TUO TESORO.

YOU absolutely KILL ME! Who has luck like that? You! My husband gets amazing parking spots and you get amazing deals. Good karma, I guess.

The fabric is beautiful...and you made a beautiful friendship, too. It doesn't get any better than that!

Nice people are just the best! Better than any material thing for sure.

Great finds in both cases too.
