Like I won the Lotto!!!

First of all, thank you to anyone who ran out and picked up my Class and Trash stuff from my last drop off post.  It's such a thrill to know people are bringing my finds into their homes.  Makes this little hobby of mine so exciting, so a big THANK YOU!

Okay, now on to the big reveal.  Like the title of this post says, I feel like I have won the lottery!  Remember my tease from Friday...

Well  here is a clearer picture!

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!  Unless it wasn't sitting in my house right now I wouldn't believe it!  A real life card catalog.  The thing I have been chasing but never caught for the past year or two.  And listen to how I came to own one.  Remember my friend "Diane" who redid her dining room with a teensy bit of help from me and a whole lot of hard work from her....

Well do you also remember she purchased two card catalogs at an auction in CT a while back.  Guess who got the other one!  And listen to this!  She refused to let me pay her for it and instead wants me to help her with another room in her house.  I think she must be smoking the wacky tobacky.  Can you even imagine.

If you live in CT, heck, if you  live anywhere near Connecticut you need to find "Diane" and beg her to be your friend!  She is THE most generous person!  I mean, do you know anyone who would give away a card catalog?!?!  Me neither!  Well, actually I do!  But you know what I mean!

So I don't know yet what I'm going to do paint wise or where I'm going to put this pretty lady.  I feel so much pressure to get it right so I want to live with it in a few places first before I get to painting it.  Okay, I'm off to stare at my card catalog a little bit more ;)  Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!


  1. What a nice thank you from "Diane"!!! Can't wait (as always) to see what ya do with it - something incredible of course, bc it always is!!!

  2. Absolutely freaking stunning!!! lucky girl. I'm so envious!!!


  3. Great score on the card catalog!

    Some of my best finds come from Class and Trash ... I have been shopping there since it was the Hanover Thrift Shop. I take new people there all the time to get them addicted, too. (evil grin)


  4. AHH! So Jealous! I want a card catalog like you don't even know! How lucky are you?! That's amazing! Where is it going to live at? I'm sure you'll put some lovely trinkets on top too :-)
