A Typical Conversation

Earlier this morning, as The Husband walked past me while I was here at my usual perch at the end of the kitchen counter, he and I had the following conversation.

Me:  "I want to show you something"  (pause, while I pull up the picture on Pinterest)

Me:  "Do you like it""  (showing him this picture of an Oriental rug)

Him:  "I like it.  It's interesting."

Me:  "Good, because it's ours."

Him:  "It is?"

Me:  "Yes, it is.  I saw it on the shop's site, and emailed them to ask if it was still available.  They sent a PayPal invoice, and now we own it."

Him:  "I was going to ask what you bought with the PayPal account.  (He pays the bills and keeps a close eye on the bank account.)

Me:  "Now you don't have to ask."

Him:  "Where are you going to put your new rug?"

Me:  "I'm not sure yet.  I'll figure that out when I pick it up."

Him:  (sighs, and walks back into his office, shaking his head.)

Covesville Store Antiques is one of my very favorite shops.  The place is full of the most wonderful items ... many of which you only hear about or see in photos in books.  They have a page on their web site that features new items, updated at least twice a week.  The good stuff sells quickly ... many times to online buyers like me.  Click HERE to see the latest items, and prepare to be amazed.


  1. A perfectly normal marriage, in my opinion.

  2. Sounds familiar. Men love to shake their head at us. LOL We love to shop. xox

  3. It's a gorgeous rug, that's for sure!

  4. My husband refuses to even look at the computer screen any more. Now, I show him on my phone or text him a picture so he has to see it but that does not guarantee a response.

  5. What a great site....dam yoU!

    xo jane

  6. Probably a good thing I hate to shop, even online.

  7. Ooooh, Connie~ I coveted the wooden bowls . . . at Coveville’s. Nice rug. You will show us where you put it, won’t you? Happy May Day

  8. haha - Love the oriental rug, and loved the story! My husband never know what I have bought, either, until he pays the bill. Poor guys.

  9. lol...sound pretty much like our conversations at our old house...still snickering! ;) Nice rug!

  10. Husbands should nEVer question their wive's decisions---they have to remember that they were one of them too!
    Nice rug, btw!
