my friend (and hero) Craig

I swear, Craigslist is the best invention of the latter half of the 20th century. I came late to CL, but in the last couple of years have become a devotee. Despite my disappointment from yesterday, I'm having an extraordinary week of fabulous finds. Of course, I'm not actually buying all the lovely stuff I find because I have NO ROOM, but it sure is fun looking.

One listing I am following through on is for these two wonderful dressers.

I've been looking for something like the long one to replace this pressed wood one I have serving as a credenza in my living room.

My beloved Kashan (carpet)

I got that one free on CL and will now hopefully be passing it along to another happy owner. I have no idea where I'm putting the second taller dresser, but I couldn't split up this pair (and they are a real steal as well). Fingers crossed for me- I'm picking up tomorrow evening and don't want anything to come between me and my new loves...

Love them - naturally, since they look like the ones I just bought.

Also, your living room reminds this Navy brat of home, in a warm fuzzy way - I grew up among similar collections of artifacts.

Gorgeous! They'll look great in your home.
