So, remember the other day when I posted this? My Mama found one just like it at a thrift store in Halfway, Oregon for $2.50. It still works! The vintage tin is from my friend in Los Angeles. She sent it filled with homemade cinnamon rolls.
I picked up this boudoir lamp and metal side table. I'm going to sand down the table and paint it yellow... but that will be another post.
I also found this wonderful wood bowl at a consignment shop -
a Dallas institution called Lula B's.
And for those of you wondering what's up with the cork body parts in the back corner of my dining room, here's a close-up. The bust form was in the trash at a clothing store I used to work for. The screen was decoupaged by my grandmother in the 50's. She ripped up a poetry book and pieced it all together with sketches by Leonardo DiVinci. The Greek worry beads and hat boxes also belonged to my grandmother. I guess this is her corner.
Picked up these little kitchen timers in the sale section at Cost Plus World Market. The flowers, pitcher and clock are all IKEA. (I know I said I'd never do silk flowers - like NEVER - but all the cut flowers I had, withered and molded in the Dallas humidity. Just say "no" to moldy flowers.)
Again, my mother and I were sifting through the sale section at Anthropologie and she found these plates. At first, I wasn't sold. I thought they were a little... I don't know... weird. But she carried them around the store saying, "They'll look really cute in your kitchen". We brought them home and she was right. They're great. I love them.
And finally... I know that this is the most overdone poster of all time, but I love it. It arrived via Etsy the week I delivered Charlie - the perfect mantra for a woman in labor. As many of you know, Charlie suffered and survived a stroke in utero. He's a month old and still, there are so many unknowns about his condition and prognosis. This sentiment continues to keep me focused and looking toward the future.
