I've Died and Gone To Heaven! at the Trump Plaza

I'm still reeling from the stupendous luck I had yesterday! My building, the Trump Plaza, hosted a tag sale of surplus furniture they needed to get rid of. I walked in out of sheer curiosity and left with sweaty palms, butterflies in my stomach and wicked smile on my face! Here's why:

Leather, nailhead daybed $220

  Maury convinced me to join the Home Goods contest this week. The theme is "
;Natural Charm" and this is what I submitted:

"Found this horse in Home Goods today! Made of light wood, I was drawn to her cascading hair. Placed her in the room with my faves, antique chair and madagascar horns!"

  8. Lucky you! The chair is the dopest! I'm wondering if you can help me... I am looking for a Victorian style chair that I can put in my office. I've noticed that you have a few in your apartment and Maury is an interior decorator so I'm hoping the both of you can point me in the right direction. I live in NYC. Thanks!
