A Little Pop In

August 25, 2011 at 6:12 AM 3 comments

Yesterday was my cousin, Brie’s, bridal shower over in Aptos.  I made the drive from San Francisco and arrived in Aptos a little earlier than planned.  With the extra time, I decided to pop into my favorite antique store in Aptos.  I popped back out with this…

A little purchase.  Scratch that….huge purchase.  I have been searching for a large round tufted, skirted ottoman in my price range for a long time.  We had one growing up in pink and it was one of my absolute favorite pieces in our home.  When I returned home from college one year, I discovered it was no longer in the living room because dad didn’t like the pink so mom switched ottomans.  I made it very clear that I thought it was a terrible decision.  What a brat.  But, I guess I should have known then that design was a passion.  And I really loved it.  Now I get my very own and that’s even better.  I am incredibly thrilled with my purchase and so happy I popped into the shop.

The shower was a blast.  Great job mom and Aunt Brenda.  Congrats to the bride, Brie.  I can’t wait for the wedding!!

    How fun for you to find a little surprise; it’s great! My parents have a dark dark red one and I’ve always loved it.
