Sorry I'm late, but family first!
Hannah and I have been shopping - we have always been recreational shoppers together - it's "what we do."
Tuesday afternoon and evening were so much fun! Hannah and I visited antiques stores, thrift stores and consignment shops looking for furniture for her future house. She will be relocating from Houston to Oklahoma City!
She treated me to dinner at a gourmet pizza cafe, where we enjoyed a pizza with bacon, goat cheese, jalapeno peppers, and candied almonds! For those of you who like sweet and hot together like I do, it was FAB.
The most fun thing of all was spending time with Hannah. We like the same kinds of things - visually and food-wise.
I marvel that I was able to grow this woman I would choose to have as a friend if we were not mom and daughter...
Thank you, God! You gave me the desire of my heart. If I could have chosen her from a catalog or have had the wisdom and creativity to designed her, I would have done exactly what you did. :)
OK - enough mushy mom stuff!
What do you think of her vintage typewriter table? We couldn't find a price on it at first, so we had to ask, and the nice lady called the booth owner. $25 AS IS.
Hannah immediately said, "I'LL TAKE IT!!!" I, being the mom, said, "Let us take a closer look to make sure it is sturdy, etc..."
It was sufficiently sturdy, and the chips were nothing a little dark walnut stain and paste wax couldn't fix. LOVE the wheels and the metal industrial parts. This little table could be used in a variety of ways - arms open or closed. We loved it!
Sorry for the awful photos - they were taken in the abyss that is my hoarder's garage...in relative darkness.
Feast your eyes on the features this week!
Julie at Renaissance Mermaid created a charming and unexpected spring vignette using a bird nest in an urn (LOVE IT!), a bird in the hand, and other charming elements.
Donna, one of my favorite pickers from Distressed Donna Down Home, showed some wonderful porch palings. I didn't know that is what they're called, so I learned something new while salivating over her vintage finds. She also has a great Etsy Shop, where I purchased a very cool item I will share in the not-too-distant future!
Doreen from Altered Artworks created a clever new note center using a thrifted frame, chicken wire and a printed burlap coffee bag! It is highly adorable AND functional.
Your creativity and style are always a delight!
I appreciate your joining this small party, your encouragement and your sweetness. I am humbled and inspired!
