Ann calls it "Hooper Land". In "Hooper Land" nice things happen. In Hooper Land I get lucky and things sometime just fall into place. I don't want to make you jealous because it can be annoying on the outside looking in. Bottom line. It's nice here and I want to stay as long as possible. Today, I had a moment in Hooper Land. I am tearing out my counter tops. More on that later. With my new tops, come a little more counter space and an overhang for bar stools. Just two of them, but barstools are needed. So I start looking. I check thrift shops, Ebay, Overstock, Craig's List, I check One King's Lane and Joss and Main because what I want is very expensive and wayyyy out of my budget. Also, what I want doesn't really exist. Except in "Hooper Land". I wanted some type of Chinoiserie bar stool. Fretwork if you will. One of these babies... but in a "Hooper Land" budget (aka cheap).
