**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ** BiRthDaY Weekend SHaBBy Sightings!*!*!

OMG!*!*! ~ WHERE do I begin????????  It all started with "Frog Husband" whisking us away to BOULDER CITY, NEVADA,  to celebrate my BiRthDaY Weekend with Family and Friends...  We weren't there but a couple hours and I had my "FIRST SHABBY-SIGHTING"!!!


 No matter what part of the country I'm in ~ NOTHING stops me from buying a "PeRfeCtly-CHiPPy" piece of furniture!!!




 I stopped dead-in-my-tracks when I caught a glimpse of this shabby "french-like" bench/table/stool!!!  It had such Great Form!!!




There was NO-WAY, I wasn't going home without it!!!  We hit the "Recycle-Cardboard" Dumpsters shortly after, and found the perfect-sized box to ship it!!!




 



 We had a lovely suite at the Historic Boulder Dam Hotel, in the downtown area of Boulder City...  I highly recommend the hotel for it's friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, & tasty breakfast/lunches...




We arrived home to the start of yet ANOTHER WINTER STORM!!!  It now looks like a "snow-globe" out there!!!

    Sorry to hear about the snow :(
    (we've been enjoying a few days with the family on the W side of Lake Mich - it was warm enough here yesterday to do some dune climbing - was hoping that spring was coming....)
