It's Like Christmas For Me

Before I get to today's post, is anyone else having trouble with Blogger?  I am scheduling my posts as usual, however they are not posting in the scheduled mode.  Very frustrating.

Today is the Ethan Allen warehouse sale.  As this post airs, I will be standing in line waiting for the doors to open.  Technically the sale opens at 10am, however I will be one of the many crazy people there at 8am.  I have been waiting for the sale for months.  They usually hold the sale in October, but this year they are holding it in April.  It's really like Christmas for me.  It's the thrill of the hunt.
    Each year I go with a "list" of the things I would love to come home with.  Only one year was I actually successful in getting any of the items on my list.  
Here is my "want" list this year:

Of course, the first thing I want is this venetian style mirror.  If you remember, I almost bought it on Craigslist from a woman who lived across country from me.

Last year I bought this gorgeous lamp at the sale.
 I really wanted two, but someone else grabbed the other one.
Yeah...it's kinda nutty at the sale.
I could not get a clear photo of this dresser, but this has been on my "want" list for four years.
I have yet to see it at the sale.  I'm hoping this is the year.

I hope I have good news to report tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
-Judy

Hope you have a wonderful time and find a lot of great things! I am having problems with scheduled posts not posting, as well. :(

Good luck on your sale!

Yes- I thought I had screwed up and was doing something wrong. My posts have not been posting as schedule either- I have had to direct post them. UGH- xo Diana

Oooo...good luck Judy! Wish I could come be a crazy lady in line with you. LOL! And yes, blogger has been giving us serious trouble...not being able to preview the post or worse yet, posting it with no content. As in, the post is there, we publish it and then the entire text/photos just disappear. So frustrating! Word Press here we come! :-)
