Almost, but not quite

One of the items on my wish list is one of the classic Eames armchairs. Really any of their chairs made of fibre glass would do. Alas, finances and lack of  really great vintage furniture available locally has worked against me. 

Still I hoped...

This weekend we took a family road trip to Billings, Montana and look what I found!

This pair of chairs stopped me dead in my tracks. Literally. I covered my mouth with my hands and looked excitedly over at Javier & Lizzie. I'm pretty sure I let out a squeal of delight. The dancing came later.

Admittedly they are not Eames chairs. I call them my faux-Eames. 

But they will do. 

And I don't really have to tell anybody, do I?

If only I would have known-there were 2 eames chairs for $50 on kijiji a month ago-I called McDreamy in to see if we could work them in anywhere but they don't go in our boring house......I'll keep watch anyway!

Do you want to hear the worst? The Fan and The Secret Weapon have a full set - the real deal - and a table in storage. Oh my. They just don't work for me right now... but maybe someday.

This was a good find.

Great find! Would love to see how you use them...

Stop by if you get a chance...one good giveaway deserves another! I'm having one in honor of my blogaversary (which I forgot) and my 300th post (which I missed noticing!)
