Lay-A-Way

I picked up this little lovely last week. One of my favorite local antique shops offers lay-a-way...can you believe it?...lay-a-way. The glass knobs are HUGE... Anyway, a few weeks ago, I had some to to kill before heading to an appointment and thought I would stop in. I was getting ready to buy some glass knobs when the owner told me they just got a piece in with the best glass knobs, did I want to take a look? Of course, I wanted to take a look, and I fell in love immediately. I was thinking about all the places I could use it in my house or the beach house...then I hit the breaks...how much? Well, not much at all, but, more than I wanted to spend just after Christmas. She said, "Put it on lay-a-way!" it was like music to my ears...so for the past few weeks I would swing by and pay down my little piece. It was worth the wait...don't you think? The whole knob is actually screwed in to the drawer front...never saw that before. And what a genius...lay-a-way! Smart business women...LOVE IT! Dove Tail...gotta love it. It is currently taking up residence in the living room (which, btw is also on THE LIST) but, who knows where it will end up!

What a great find! I have probably driven by there 100 times and have never stopped. Now I will HAVE to. Enjoy your new piece.
