Happy Monday blogging buddies!
Last week I contacted a seller on Craigslist about her retro lamp for sale.
How rare is it that you strike up a friendly conversation with a complete stranger?
I talked to Penny for almost an hour that night.
She filled me in on the history behind the lamp she had to offer. So neat to know exactly where your "new" finds originated from.
As we were discussing plans to meet up, I discovered she loved Primitive/Country decor. I had a lot of Primitive decor just sitting in an extra room.
She offered to make a trade for the items. That's exactly what we did.
I was so pleased to meet Penny and her daughter. What lovely folks!
Penny does not have a blog, but she is a reader.
Thank you Penny...you truly are a kindred spirit.
Isn't this lamp a beautiful piece of mid-century art?
Aren't those swirls to die for?! The shade was way more gorgeous than I had expected!
Penny also offered me this mid-century alarm clock that belonged to her parents.
It now sits in my bedroom.
My favorite Craigslist finds to date! :)
I had a little extra time this weekend to sneak off to the antique stores in a nearby town.
My husband is so darn cute. I bought this vintage-inspired radio Saturday morning. Later that evening he high-jacked the radio to the kitchen and cooked my step daughter and I dinner while listening to it. AND used my Pyrex!
So cute...he really is my favorite person! :)
How incredibly beautiful is this Fire King Vitrock Tulips grease jar? I had to have it!
Now I need the matching S&P shakers.
Speaking of S&P shakers.....
I found an item on my wish list!!!!
Isn't it such an amazing feeling when you can check off a long-awaited item?
I have been eye-ing these 1958 Holt Howard cat S&P shakers on every and any web site I can view them on. Now all I have to do is walk into my kitchen! :)
Oh Fiestaware! I love everything about you!
I like to mismatch Fiesta. I think that is part of it's fun!
These colors just so happen to be my favorites. Turquoise and Persimmon :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know we enjoyed ourselves!
Jack-O-Lantern we carved! Isn't he scary?
