Adventure! Intrigue! Craigslist!...?

Gracie, Napoleon and I are soon to be off on another Craigslist adventure!  We are headed four hours south to St. Louis, Missouri!

The gentleman who is selling this cradle promises to tell me the story behind it when I get there!  I can't wait!

Like I need another twin bed...!

Bonus!  Actually, the BEST part is that we get to meet Richard and his beagle girl, Sissy on our way back home!  Richard is the author of the blog entitled My Old Historic House.  He promised to take us on a tour of his lovely home and museum, the Elgin Cottrell House in Clarksville, Mo!  If you haven't met him yet, you should!  
Plus, I think Napoleon has a crush on Sissy!

I met a lovely couple this evening who came to my home to purchase a set of Napoleonic stools I had listed on Craigslist!  Kindred spirits!  They are just as excited about my finds as I am!  LOL!
Isn't it nice to meet like minded individuals?  My handsome husband doesn't exactly get hot under the collar about interior design, so it's nice to spend time with others who share my passion!


  1. Oh Andie you get to meet Richard?!! How exciting!! I bet he has more good stories about his antiques than there are grains of sand on the beach! *winks* That man has some amazing antiques! Take lots of pictures ok? And please give Sissy girl some pets from me. Vanna
