fortuitous finds

Some of you can imagine my ecstasy at spotting 
these items on the side of a country road last night!
We were driving to meet friends,
enjoying the gorgeous fall colors,
(and I confess to having been reading a book out loud)
ALL at the same time!
It's a wonder I saw it!
My husband had to back up.
It was SO worth the stop.
A good cleaning and some wood refinishing, 
and we will have some fine items to enjoy!

I think it worth a heads up to mention 17 Benefits of Being Yourself over at The Simply Luxurious Life.  If you need a little boost to your self- esteem or find yourself wavering under the tides of current trends in decorating or fashion, this post is for you. 

I'm off to enjoy what is predicted to be a wonderful autumn weekend!
Hope you enjoy it, too.
