Wish list: vintage wire garden gate

While haunting my favorite antique mall this morning, I spied this very sweet vintage wire garden gate. Saw the price and felt the rise of giddiness only to be crushed by the note on the back of the tag: HOLD until Sunday.

But wait! Sunday! Why, that was yesterday! It’s in the clear!

Then a voice behind me said, “That’s mine. I’m here to pick it up.”

DAMN that WOMAN.

I’m determined to find one just like it and make it mine. Oh Antique Mall Hold Tag, you will not stand between me and my destiny.

So if you see one of these floating around in the Chicago area, please drop a line. Thank you!
