    I think this is quite possibly the best and funny story I have ever read. I tht I was gonna have a seizure b4 I got to the end of it. U have never commented on an actual story b4 like this, but I think we must b related and ur hubby must b related to my dear departed husband. Who by the way was named Rocky. Thank u for the laughSSSSS.

    Loved your story! I laughed out loud! I am a big Craigslister, my hubby feels the same way Paul does…but he always goes with me and helps me bring my treasures home.

    I find I have the same ailments
    (Wants, needs, gifts…), as of you. My husband has enjoyed almost as much as yours! I have been staying away from Craigslist, garage sales, Goodwill’s, off the beaten path second hand stores, due to his persistent pleading to hold off. 😊
    Love your finds!

    I just HOWLED through your narration of this whole process! And the bit about not letting the guys know too far ahead of things…PRICELESS!! It is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous and you practically stole it!!! Great find, and it deserves to have you “save” it! Sincere congratulations for a job well done and a beautiful piece rescued!!

    Lol, THAT is such an amazing find, and written in such a fun way. It was worth his wrath, just look at it!!

    You really should haul those vertical or on their side, when horizontal the mirrors own weight can easily crack them.

    You probably already knew this, but had no way to vertically hall a mirror that freaking BIG. Next time, call me. You can borrow my horse trailer. Lol. (Sorry… I’m an enabler, too.)

    I have to say you are the most fun and best blog writer I have ever read. You are fun, you laugh at life, your finds and best of all yourself. You appreciate and love your very talented and wonderful husband, and I’m pretty sure he appreciates and loves you right back. You make shopping on craigslist an adventure. You let your readers know that you occasionally change your mind and decide to sell something wonderful for something else, and that changing your mind is a good thing or maybe even a great thing. Life changes all the time, why shouldn’t our decorations and homes change too.

    Your husband and mine must be related. I drive him.insane with my finds. If it’s a small one, I don’t say anything. But a mirror that big, no way I could keep it hidden. Nice find.

    I dont know which made me laugh more, the size of the mirror or your description of your husbands reaction. I love the mirror, and of course you should have it just because it exists!!

    Your story kept me reading until the very last word! I was smiling and laughing and I felt sorry for Paul for a moment or two! Your funny and talented. Keep it up. What a great team you both make.
