My Newest Family Member



My newest child in my Heywake family! The evil heywake dealer was there so bidding went high but I was able to walk away with one piece of heywake for $95! I gave myself 100 bucks to spend and went over it by $4 because I had to have a 1950's mini light up santa that just screamed merry kitschmas! I met a very nice man there who was trying to buy the heywake dining set for his 1960's ranch house and was out bid by the evil heywake dealer! That dining set with the small buffet, 6 dogbone chairs, and huge 3 wishbone leg table went for a steal of a deal at $1600! I can never hang when they sell pieces all together like that because I be poor! I felt really bad for the guy trying to buy the dining set...I don't think he's fully aware of the cash power of the EHD! He left very upset which made EHD laugh.




I would also like to report that Mr. Hissy Pants has now become Mr Purry Pants! Here we are celebrating my one chair victory over the evil heywake dealer! See, good sometimes does win over evil!

  11. Hey, one chair is still a victory! I wonder if Mr. EHD ever feels all of our negative vibes wafting his way?

    I'm so happy to see the transformation of Mr. Purry Pants!

  18. Hi Mary,

    The new chair is really a great addition. You really have amazing taste.

    But in reply to your comment...I have been busy lately. This 41 Olds convert I've been lusting after for about a year has finally gone up for sale. So I've been trying to be a good girl and save to buy it. But we'll see...we might be able to fit a shopping date in somewhere.

  20. Well, those certainly are great finds!! I found that very same Santa a few weeks back at a yard sale - just like you, I HAD to have him!
    Love your blog, and your house. You have superb taste.
