White Tree Seat

Hi Everyone
 Happy Wednesday
This fabulous vintage  wrought iron tree seat
 sits in our circle drive way 
it is wrapped around a pretty blue Jacaranda tree
Its funny how much we use this seat 
When I found it I was at a garage sale 
My heart skipped a beat I knew exactly where I was going to put the seat I could see it sitting around the tree in the drive way
 but I was told  the bench was already
the lady was coming back to pick it up
{ it is very heavy}
I gave the seller my number for some reason
 just in case the lady did not show up?
So I came home and looked online for a tree seat to put around the tree 
 This  white wooden tree seat from amazon.com
was pretty

This one from  Living Quarters  was beautiful
I imagined it painted white

Then magically I got a call
the lady who was going to pick up the seat
changed her mind
 I was in the car so fast
It is the perfect combination of vintage white and rust

it was meant to be here
I have learned to leave my number just in case  
Has this ever happened to you
