" Oh that one is going in the house"

#1

Post by kellyblues »

So I'm unboxing some of my GPA stuff and pull out this Hawthorn I forgot I had and forgot why I had it. Until the girlfriend says
" Oh that one is going in the house"
At first I wondered why would she want this old thing in the house. Then I take a closer look.........it's got a seafoam vent. And then I remember why I have it. Lol So now I'm going to clean it up and turn it over to the interior decorator aka the boss. Teal is her favorite color.

That is a nice way to make the Boss happy. Hope you post pics when you have it cleaned up so we can be happy too.

Lol Dan, she likes that one too. It's allowed in the house. She said once I've got everything unboxed to let her know what ones I would like to have inside and she'll pick spots. Shes just now seeing my gpa stuff and my other antiques. She's really having fun with it all. This one is a total keeper

That's funny, my wife said the same thing about my seafoam 242b. It actually never did make it into the house though.

Wiped the dirt off, washed the vent and stuck a green rising sun globe in it and delivered it to the boss lady for proper placement. She has a few lanterns placed here and there around the house.

Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.
