Isn't it funny how sometimes when you're picking/shopping, you come across a bunch of items in the same color palette?
The other day I had to bring home this beautiful 1950s Quiltex baby blanket in soft blues and pinks because it was only 50 cents and was in such great condition (no thread pulls!); at the same shop I found a coordinating metal tin and a roll of tulle. They look so pretty arranged together!
I was estate sale-ing last week and picked up these first day envelopes among someone's stamp collection. There were boxfuls so I just chose those that struck my ephemera-loving fancy; I also came across this great vintage Georges Briard hot plate.
It's called a "Hot Butler" and this one is mid century modern-dreamy from its gilded bird motif to its teak handles. It's now in my shop.
I recently sold those fabulous Briard Grand Opera cocktail napkins, too. I love anything he did, but this design was especially fabulous!
Before we knew the results of our taxes (insert weeping) my husband and I fell in love with this vintage bar:
It was in an estate sale liquidation shop, and priced to sell at $200. I didn't even mind the cheesy German tourist scene (Neuschwanstein Castle) on the front!
Look at all that fabulous storage in the back! I will probably always regret not getting it. We really need extra glass and bar-paraphernalia space. Wouldn't it be fun for parties?
Some other stuff I loved but didn't buy: this fabulous green contoured sofa...
a beautiful mohair coat with embroidered sleeves...
a slightly damaged but still lovely sampler...
a mold shaped like a pair of britches! Is there not endless amusement at junk outlets?
