weekend finds

Being that my favorite auction place only holds a general auction once a month, I've been having serious withdrawal to find and buy stuff lately; this weekend I drag my whole family to a small antique mall to look around and pick stuff I can afford.  One booth has a big moving sale and I scored the items pictured above.  The blue fan works wonderful and surprisingly quiet, I used it all afternoon in my office yesterday.  The pig cookie jar was also a cute find and I just love the shape and the color of the creamer and sugar dishes.

Hubby is developing a keener eye for my mid century taste and spotted this beautiful teak coffee table that has a couple of spots on top greatly reduced from $100 to $30. We took it home, he sanded the top and refinished it, and now it looks like a million bucks - or more like 400 bucks :) .

A happy Monday indeed!

new home: apple canisters

Super excited to see this home tour of Bradford Shellhamer's home in New York Times, and to see those red and yellow apple canisters he ordered prominently displayed on his fabulous kitchen counter. I really admire his style, all the bright colors makes the place so fun and cheerful.  The red heart shaped lounge chairs on the second photo is to die for!

You can check out the rest of the home tour here.
