Beauty or a Beast

I once heard "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."  I'm sorry, but you never hear that phrase when something is really beautiful - I'm just saying.  I've found I have a secret.  I'm in love.
Just the other day while I was driving down the street when I saw her on the corner.  She was so beautiful with her long legs, and I believe she was French.  After I convinced myself that she must be mine, and a very illegal U-turn, I raced back to her.  To my horror, a larger lady got there before me!  Forcefully, she was loading her into the back of her car.  She was gone...
Oh, I forgot to tell you that she was a french country style love seat.  Ever since then I have been on the look out for a love seat or a settee.  With the lost hope, I searched like a lost puppy realizing I would never be able to find somethings as lovely and for free.

Unfortunately, I have forever lost the love of my life to a random act of change.  The other woman came between me and my settee.  I'm truly grateful for the fact that I've always gotten what I've desired; all that it takes is a little patience, and an ever searching eye.

At a grand opening at a not-so-grand store (the Goodwill), I saw a not-so-very handsome love seat.   So this is what they meant when they said, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."  a not-so-very attractive love seat that was upholstered in a lovely combination of cheap polyester and clear vinyl.  How lovely.  Here is my question: is this piece a beauty or a beast?  See what I will make of this pretty.
