lunch break thrifting

As you can see, I had some luck today. Who says you have to spend hours sifting through rack after rack? I found all this on my lunch break. Score.

aruba, jamaica, ooooh I wanna take ya

So while on the epic MCM house tour in Columbus, IN last weekend, I burst through the door of the first home to find this:

Oh yeah, I gotta make that mine.

Just a few days later, I was perusing Craigslist (my new best friend) and found a pretty good version of the same table and chairs. Four chairs instead of six and a little wear ‘n tear.

I had to drive all the way to Kokomo to get it. And as you can see, almost everything fit* into my little green Honda. Almost.

Everything but the table top. That’s kinda important. Oh well. I’ll be heading back up to get the top this week and then another piece of awesome will be added to my collection. Hmm. What next?

*Have to say thanks to the incredibly nice couple that sold me the table. Could not have jammed all that into my car without their help.

all your mcm are belong to me

What a nice way to brighten up a rainy Saturday. Last weekend I perused the aisles of Midland Arts and Antiques in search of the perfect accent lamp. And though I didn’t find it, I found a few other small goodies… and lusted over a few big ones (including this mid-century chair)

It was way out of my price range, but I went back today, and found said chair had been marked down since last week, and was an additional 75%… I paid less than $25 for it! Someone. please. pinch me.

Cat-approved. I’ve been doing a lot of rearranging/de-cluttering, and I’ll post pics of that soon.
