what was i thinking??


do you ever have those moments where you pass something up and then years later think...
"wow, i wish i had that now"... this is one of those moments. i am having friends over this weekend and as i am arranging the garden furniture i remembered this set i found in the south of france that i "passed up". i still think of it and at least i can remember it from this lovely photo.. no worries though... i still have wonderful pieces and we will have a fabulous time... happy weekend everyone!

Have a good weekend!

Wow, those chairs were absolutely gorgeous, such an unusual shape. A great post to stress the old agage 'He who hestitates is lost'.

Of course everything will be lovely, even without this treasure!

Ugh... I hate it when that happens! The ones that get away.... I'm still obbsessing over a painting I didn't buy in Paris ten years ago because I didn't like the vendor, but the painting has kept in my memory long after the dislike for the vendor has subsided!

No fun to think about the opportunities missed. I kinda think you have many more moments of triumph than defeat! :)

Yes, I know that feeling well. I am sure what you have is lovely but sometimes it is just so difficult to forget!

Chic Provence said...

Oh, yes, many times I've had that very thought!

But someday/somewhere you will find the perfect set that will make you forget this one!

Do love it, but there are more..thanks for posting and reminding us how that feels!
