One of many "wants of the week" this week is a gold-leaf glass top cocktail table. It seems as though every magazine I've gotten recently showcases a gorgeous living room, with a gorgeous glass top table, with a gorgeous arrangement of pink peonies. Such as this lovely pic from this month's Elle Decor:
I've scoured the world wide web for said cocktail table, and have yet to find any on the cheap. I, however, have been able to find plenty of fabulous tables that are well out of my price range, such as this beaut:
The website says 'call for price' - and in Katie terms, that means 'don't even think about it, because you probably can't afford it.' Or something like that. Which is unfortunate, because I think two of these nested together would just go wonderfully in my living room. Don't you? So, if anyone can find me something like this remotely near my price range, I'll owe you a cocktail. In the meantime, I'm going to head to Garden Ridge and pick out some $2.99 pink flowers to put on my currently 'blah' coffee table. Every little bit helps, right?
Speaking of cocktails, I'm also taking suggestions as to what I should give up for Lent. Last year it was drinking on week nights and avoiding any establishments that had a drive-thru. Needless to say, God was happy and I shed a few pounds. So this year I need to beat that! Thoughts?
Happy Fat Tuesday!
