Thrift store score and waiting for mail

I went to the thrift store on my lunch break today and found this awesome vintage serving bowl:

It's actually the same designer and brand as these, though not the same pattern. I love it!

As for my most recent purchases, I'm waiting for these adorable vintage salt and pepper shakers from Brooklynretro:

Too cute to pass up, right? And I looove the color. I'm also waiting for this great bag from helisengezer:

I love the lace detail and it has a place to clip your keys inside. This is crucial for me, since I lose my keys about a hundred times a day.

Now tell me what you're waiting to get in the mail!

  2. OMG - speaking of losing car keys - Amy we have permanently lost one of our car keys. You know, the kind that cost $200 from the dealer? So now I have ONE car key. Chuck thinks I'm out of my mind because after either of us drives that car the key must be immediately hung on the key rack!
    So no more losing car keys for me (I think you might have gotten the losing keys trait from Vickie though - as far back as I can remember she could never find her keys!)

  3. I'm waiting for:

    1) Part of the beau's birthday gift -- a collector's edition DVD of "Pulp Fiction." It's one of his fav movies, but he has it only in VHS.

    2) Paper airplane charms that are on back order (booooo!) that I use for my rock/paper/scissors bff necklaces in my Etsy shop.
