Speedy, Speedy, Speedy

I had a little shock today. I had forgotten I had ordered new counter stools for the kitchen. Well, I remembered, but for some reason I thought they wouldn't arrive until Christmas/new Year's time frame.

So when my fabulous Fed Ex man knocked and said he had 3 huge boxes I was surprised. Some of you, Hopsy, know that I spent an insane amount of time looking for bamboo style counter stools. The search + MAJOR FAIL. So I channeled my inner Lilly, or half Lilly and went green and a little wild too! The best part is that both the pillow fabric and the chair fabric are outdoor fabrics, so they repel water...I am hoping Mini K doesn't put them to the test tomorrow!


As I was unpacking them, I realized tomorrow our fabulous housekeeper comes. This translates to total panic attack of what to do with the old stools so there wouldn't be clutter. So at 4pm today up they went on Craig's List and and by 7:45pm they were gone.

I love it when things work out. There is always that little scare when you order something and wonder if it will work out, but this time I think it did.
