The Unlucky Glasses – New Thrifted Finds

I should know better than to try and take pictures of things on Friday the 13th.  Not that I am supersitious, but still.

Vintage Bar Glasses

The caption of this photo should be: In Memorium. These glasses no longer exsist. Right after I finished taking this picture, one of my cats lunged at another lounging cat from behind my white backdrop and propelled one glass into the other at an enormous rate of speed. Both glasses literally exploded,  and a shower of glass rained all over my backdrop, my carpet, me and a very startled cat. I had to get the vaccum and everyone else had a time out in the basement. I also had to throw away the white background cloth. Better safe than sorry. Sigh.

 

Take TwoOk, photography session: take two.  The vintage tablecloth underneath is a recent find too, so I suppose it isn’t a bad thing that I was forced to use it.

The pink container is a planter, I believe, but I think I am going to put it in my pink bathroom and have it hold make-up brushes.  It was 25 cents.  The mini-muffin pan was 89 cents and is going to join the other mini-pans I have been slowly accumulating.  The vintage fake pearls are a great extra long strand that I found for $1.99. I love them because they have that great bone color, rather than being the glowing white of some of my other pearl strands.

And here is a little fun with the close-up button!Pearls In PanI hope you survived Friday the 13th with no mishaps and no exploding glasses!

Etsy Round-up – Pink Desk & Contact Paper

The first item in today’s Etsy Round-up is a great pink desk from HausProud.pink-desk

At $350 it is a leeeetle to expensive for my tastes, but it is a great inspiration piece.  I love the pink paint – it is exactly the same pink as my kitchen! I also love how the top is elevated off the desk base. Love it, and one to dream on. If you dream in pink, that is.

Check out HausProud’s other items, too. There are some great ones. Especially this metal tray and these great white and gold starburst slipper chairs.  

The bargain of the day comes from nostalgiaemporium’s shop. This great lot of vintage 1970’s contact paper, which is just awesome.  Pam at Retro Renovation got me hooked on wallpaper recently, and this contact paper gives me that wallpaper fix.vintage-contact-paper-11

It is a pretty good deal at $12 for the whole bunch.  If you had some vintage kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets that needed a little coverage, this would be perfect. Or if you wanted to be vintage crafty….
