I was having trouble stuffing roadside treasures in the trunk of my car, so Philly bought me a Jeep. It's not like a JEEP Jeep...I won't be off-roading or driving through the desert and calling it a horse with no name or anything.
This is a Princess Jeep. I can start my Jeep from my cell phone while sitting on the throne. Or before I leave work. Or while sitting at the bar. Or on the throne at the bar. It doesn't discriminate.
I know...I'm sofa king spoiled.

But right now I'm using it as my laptop station. I'm shopping online for fabric.
I got a few other treasures through Craigslist. I had been saving for new bedroom furniture for 15 years. Then I decided I didn't want new. I wanted old-new. So I spent 1/10 the money I had saved and got these beauties! They are in amazing condition. The color isn't my favorite, but that's easy to change, right?
