trend setter that I am...

When I'm not busy leaping workday obstacles with a single bound or tending to a small hobby farm or refilling my antique business stock or readying a hayloft for a barn sale....I am most definitely setting trends (you are welcome to insert "not" here). So paint surprise on my face when I see almost my identical trunk in the recent pages of Pottery Barn. Now we all know that using a trunk as a coffee or side table is not a new decorating standard.....but a GREEN trunk.....I am most certain I am the inspiration behind that (again you are welcome to insert "not" here).

However, for your judgement, see the evidence below:

Photo 1 ~ Pottery Barn's $500ish version
Photo 2 ~ $35 flea market find in living room
Photo 3 ~ $25 auction find on porch
Photo 4 ~ again we return to green trunk in living room in closing argument

Hmmm...trend setter?
