I saw the ad for these chairs early in the afternoon. They were listed in my city, so I knew it wouldn't cost much in gas to go get them. I sent the owner an e-mail, and she called back a couple of hours later, offering them to me. Turns out she lives just a few blocks from me! I got a set of four: two for the balcony, which is where these are, and two for the back deck, which is too much of a mess right now for me to show you. The cushions need a good wash, but other than that they are fine. Very lightweight too. Love 'em!
One day back in March, Wes called me up to his study and told me to look at a picture on his computer. It was this chair and ottoman. For free. The lady who owned them had moved into a smaller place and didn't have room for them. She lived almost down to the US border, but for something this nice, it was worth the bit of a drive. You may not be able to tell in the picture, but it's a sage green tone-on-tone print, perfectly matching our drapes and just a few shades lighter than our dark green sofa and loveseat. I love this set too! No one can believe we got it for free!
I didn't get this family on Craigslist, though. They are the Kamps Family, who visited with us on Sunday. And they came to see us for free, even though we did give them a love offering to help them along the way! ;) Their picture was in the batch that I just downloaded, so I thought I'd share it with you too.
It's a beautiful day in Vancouver! Hope you're having a beautiful day where you are!
