Something I got and something I didn't.
Today I picked up just a couple of vintage finds after work. I couldn't pass up the sweet little saucer above. I love that shade of pink, and the crackling (click for a close-up) is perfect. It was 50 cents. Oh, and it TOTALLY looks like it goes with the little bowl in this post. They go perfectly together!
The next thing was not something I probably would've bought, but I just happened to pick it up and start reading the first page of this 1928 book:
I ended up really liking where it was going (after just a few pages) and now I have to see what happens. It was that interesting! I just looked online and I'm not sure but I think it might be part of a trilogy- maybe the second in the series, that seems to be about a minor character in the first book. I hope I didn't need to read the first one to understand this one. It seems to be about a human somehow traveling to a looking-glass type planet and relaying the customs and strange things happening all around him. Yay for a new (old) book!
Lastly, I thought I'd show you something I saw at the same shop recently and obviously could not buy (at over $4,000.00!):
Oh, how I love those chairs! This table was way bigger than the photo shows. I don't think this set would even fit in my dining room. Isn't it great, though?!
Happy Friday, everyone. Have a great weekend!
