Anyway, I made it there and back. The Museum is closed today--snow day--so, I made myself an egg sandwich and have spent the past couple hours knitting and watching Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Don't you wish you could be doing the same? Probably you do. But now I need to actually do something with my afternoon.
Whatever that something will be, it probably won't merit a blog post, so this one will feature some recent found treasures. Way more exciting that anything else I have in my "to be blogged" file at the moment. I don't actually keep a file like that...it's a notebook that Catherine was going to give away to the thrift store. It's yellow.
Since it fits well with a post about my estate/thrift finds, I also wanted to tell you that Design Sponge has added a new monthly column to their repertoire (I feel like I've been using that word a lot lately. Have I? Or is it just in my mind?): "Treasure Hunting". Here's their first installment on Keys!
OK, let's get back to focusing attention on me.
|Bows from a Tacoma estate sale. They're like urchins!|
|Ribbon which will definitely play a large role in |
Halloween decorations this year. Have I mentioned that
my two decorative pumpkins are still going strong on my
bookshelf? They're real troopers, in it for the long haul.
|A 1950s edition of Life Among the Savages. Pick it up somewhere.|
|It was an old library book--in very good shape if you're able to ignore the slight Grandma's basement smell. |
If it weren't so snowy, I'd air it on the porch for a bit...maybe in a couple months.
|While these bow stickers are cute, I really bought them for their description.|
|Very vintage wrapping paper.|
Yowzers. Who even came up with clowns in the first place? Riddle me that.
