Gloating

I'm so haaaappy!!!
Ever since we've been in this house I have hated the diningroom chairs. The house was furnished when we took it and here we were, a family of 10, with glass tables and black upholstered chairs. Yuck.

They are horrible! They're loose and the supports have come undone. We've repaired them numerous times, but they are bent on being unmanageable. I've determined for some time now that I was going to get new chairs as soon as I could find some. Well, here on Saipan that's the kicker--finding something I like.

Anyway--Friday I went into a little shop here to buy placemats. They specialize in furniture imported mostly from Indonesia, so it's always fun to look around. While I was looking I came across these chairs that they've had in there for a while. They're mahogany chairs with caned seats and a pineapple carved into the back. I've always liked them, but I didn't want to spend the $160 each to buy them for my diningroom. Well, that day they were on sale for $50!!! And they had six! New diningroom chairs and a bargain to brag about to boot--which we all know makes them that much prettier! :)
