I love this print in our livingroom (yes, my banner is our livingroom!)
One late morning I was riding my bike when I saw a tag sale sign a few blocks away. I stopped in. The owner was a designer who, believe it or not, had the same house as I did! It was weird and wonderful walking around a house with the same layout and seeing it decorated differently! Everything was truly expensive and I never have that kind of budget. Yet, I spotted this print on the wall and quietly put in an offer for $20.00. The designer fought me and tried to raise the price but I wouldn’t (and couldn’t!) budge. I walked away for a bit feeling a little flushed and foolish. Moments later she came up to me and said “OK” but you could tell she wasn’t happy! Btu I was! I got on my bike and went as fast as my totally out of shape legs could go! Zooming into the driveway, I saw my husband cutting the lawn. I hopped into the car and started dashing backward out of the driveway. He waved me down, put the mower in neutral, and asked where I was going.
I explained a tag sale. His eyes rolled. “What did you buy?”
“Umm..it’s a print for the living room—it’s sort of a peasant holding like a lightning rod that has 6 pigeons on it.”
He looked at me quizzically, put the mower in high gear and, shaking his head, kept walking across the lawn.
Like I said,
I love this print!
