Or, I could say, every dog has her day.
So, while grazing on the net for wonderful vintage stuff, which I tend to do much more than I ought to, I came across a blog by someone who seems to love the exact same kind of decor I do. The blog is T-Party and this is the author, Susan's, website, T Party Antiques.
"Whoa," I said to myself. "Here is a person who likes almost the exact same stuff that I like. Like, exact!" And I continued to check out her blog pictures. And then I came to the photo above.To say that I did a double take, is to put it mildly.
Why? Do you see that little homemade, folksy dog in the blue cupboard? Yes, that one. Well, I had that EXACT DOG in my Etsy cart about a week ago, and then took it out, because, well, because I was buying too much stuff already.
So I left a comment on her blog, because I thought it was so wonderfully bizarre that I just accidentally came across the person who bought the same dog that I almost bought. And look how cute it looks in its new home, to boot. What are the chances of that happening? Well, as it turns out, almost nil, since this was not the new owner of said dog. This was the person who had the dog for sale in her Etsy shop! The dog I almost bought.
Want a closer look? Here is is:
And here is the link for the listing in the shop.I give this to you now, knowing that you might actually run over and buy the dog. I am thinking that because of the way this has all come down, it must be Karma, and that I was truly meant to buy that dog. So, if you want it badly enough, you should beat me to it. Now.
On the other hand, I could take this all as a sign that I am spending waaaay too much time collecting stuff to decorate my house and studio with.That would be the better cosmic way to view this, would it not?
