My husband has a house rule. Anything over a certain price range I'm not allowed to buy without permission. I've got a few things by him in the past. But a bed! No such luck. I would have a hard time explaining that one. I can just imagine that conversation taking place. It would go something like this:
Me- "Look at this incredible bed I found."
Hubby- "Very nice. How much did it cost me?"
Me-"I got a really great deal on it."
Hubby- "I'd like to see what you consider a deal. The receipt please."
Look at this fantastic 19th Century Henry II armoire. It's also French. I love the elegant twisted columns and the carved frieze. I can already fantasize where I'd place it. It's absolutely amazing.
On another note, I recently came across a stunning porcelain collection called FRANZ Papillon Butterfly. Very unique pieces. I have a friend who loves collecting butterfly decor. This will make the perfect gift for her birthday. I'm thinking of ordering her a tea cup.
