Wow, sometimes patience really does pay off!


I posted a few months ago about our new patio dining table, and how we wanted new chairs to match. I've been scanning the internet like a hawk ever since then, hoping to find something I liked for less than $150 per chair (a LOT less). A couple of weeks ago I finally saw a classified ad for the very same chairs I had been wishing for. They match our table exactly, and the seller was asking $150 for ALL EIGHT! They were brand new, but to Tom's delight she had already put them together. She even kindly offered to put five of them in her mini-van and follow me to our house when she saw that I could only fit three in our car. I thought that was really nice of her. Finally, our set is complete. Now we just need all of you to come over and make yourselves comfortable!

Isn't it funny how the littlest things make us happy?
