Faudree Find!

I *Heart* Estate Sales!  
As soon as the email pops in my inbox 
I am checking out all the sales for the week.
  I scour every photo to find hidden treasures.
  This past week was no exception. 
 There were a ton of sales going on that I didn't want to miss.  
Unfortunately, there was a LOT of mulch in my future...  
 No time to go to Estate Sales. 
 I sadly looked at the pictures anyway, envisioning the bargains that wouldn't be mine. 
 What?  What's this? 
  Who is this cute little Frenchy? 
 And why is it in the middle of all of this eclectic furniture? 
 I spied the most adorable little three seater in a roomful of mid-century modern furniture.
  Surely it felt out of place and needed to be rescued!  
How could I let it down?  
It must find a new home where it can be loved and surrounded by it's peers. 
 Look at the exquisite detail on this beauty! 
 And it was so close to me.  A mere 5 minutes away!  
If I sneak out early I can snatch it up and be home in a flash.
  To the rescue!!!
 Charles Faudree would be so Proud of me! 
 See that happy little King Charles Spaniel lounging at the breakfast table? 
 On a Country French Three Seater!!!  
It must have been fate as this very book is sitting on my old bench in the kitchen...  
I was one of the first in line and searched for my bench. 
 I found it in the sun-room at the back of the house just waiting for me.  $160.00  seemed like a great price for a bench like this in perfect condition!  
In the back of the SUV it goes.  
There and back in 20 minutes.
No time to play with pillows.
  I've got a lot of yard work to do!  

OK, maybe just a few...  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,
XO Cindy

I am an estate sale junkie, too. That's a great piece for a grab price! It just makes my day to find something I love!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

Such a great find ... and I love that you "ditched" the mulching and got there in time to be near the front of the line. And the pillows are darling ...

I love this stool. I have one just like it, but it's a distressed white. I want to strip it and make it a dark wood. Yours is perfect as it is. Great score! Found you through Southern Hospitality and again through Coastal Charm. Thank you for sharing! XO Laura at The Ironstone Nest
