Before we get to FFF, I want to give a special shout out to a place that has earned my affections today. This is probably TMI, but if you’ve ever driven through an urban area and drank a bit too much water prior to doing so, you know how hard it can be to find a restroom or even an exit that leads to a restroom. So, after about a hour of driving through NYC traffic, I was about ready to burst and cry. We finally took an exit in Queens, hoping to find a place that would obviously have a public bathroom. Or a bush. No luck. I spotted a small pizza place and asked (maybe pleaded) if we could pull over. I was almost certain I would be turned away with the usual, “Sorry, you have to be a customer…” or I would be handed a key strapped to a cinder block where I would be directed to sketchy shack behind the restaurant. I ran to the pizza place, hoping they would take pity on a teary woman who was clearly not a New Yorker and was also clearly about to wet her pants. The wonderful man at the host/hostess station of Dee’s Pizza in Queens smiled and gave me directions to their restroom and permission to use it without being a customer. From this day forward, Dee’s Pizza in Queens has a special place in my heart. (Their pizza looked and smelled amazing as well!) Anyway, thanks to the kindness of strangers, we will get the full deposit back on our rental van.
I told you…TMI.
Sooo…since I’m traveling this weekend, I had a friend pick my favorites for me. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Jessica of Dear Emmeline through her blog and also through Lucketts. She has great taste and picked some beautiful pieces. You can see she likes the chippy thing. My kind of girl. Here are her favorites.
It was so hard to pick just three features from all the wonderful projects linked up last week! I couldn’t move on without giving a nod to the rest of the projects that caught my eye. I pinned all the projects I wish I could have featured on my painting-refinishing-reupholstering Pinterest board with MMS 4/19 in the comments.
Thanks, Jessica! Sorry to introduce you after a potty story!
Here are the rules for our furniture get-together…
1.) Your post has to be about furniture. Please, please, please…just furniture. If you find your link has been deleted, it’s not because I’m mean, it’s because your post was not about furniture. You can share makeovers, awesome finds, favorite pieces, furniture arrangements, or even pieces on your wish list! Built-in furniture like kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities qualify as furniture.
2.) Post a permalink (the link to the post), not the link to your blog.
3.) This party will close Friday at midnight PST and I will choose my favorite(s) and feature their piece(s) on next week’s FFF.
Enjoy the party!
