Measuring up - a giveaway!
A friend and fellow antiques lover I work with told me she recently came across a piece of furniture that was an absolute perfect fit for an area she'd wanted to decorate at her home. How did she know it would fit? Well, like any organized soul, she'd taken the measurements for the spot and carried a measuring tape in her purse. (She is also our office manager, which is no doubt why our workplace runs like clockwork.)
The measurements I usually wonder about are for tablecloths and curtains I come across in antique and junk shops, so I'm going to start carrying a measuring tape with me as well, and I found the perfect one on eBay.
A vendor who sells wedding favors had these recently for just $1.29 (you can personalize them with stickers), and I ordered several for future tea party favors - and one more just for one of you. So, anyone who leaves a comment between now and midnight Saturday "measures up" for this giveaway! How's that?
