Wednesday, kind of a blah day. As usual, I’m crushing on a few things that I found at a shop near me that sells a lot of vintage furniture, home décor and jewelry. I’d love to buy them. But am not going to. Unless they go WAY down in price….
#3 – Bright Blue Bench
#2 – Elegant Table (which I’ll use as a desk)
#1 – Chinoiserie Gilt Mirror (if I can I use ‘Chinoiserie’ to describe a mirror!)
I’m going over to the shop where I found these pieces last week to a) see if these pieces re still there and b) if I can talk down the price on any of them. Especially the mirror. LOVE that mirror.
I also thought I’d mention a great book I’m using to study up on the history of furniture, which I’m getting really into. It’s called Furniture, World Styles from Classical to Contemporary, by Judith Miller. It’s basically an encyclopedia of furniture from around the world, starting at 4000 B.C.E. It’s very comprehensive, and the pictures make me drool!
Ok, I’m off to ‘visit’ today’s three wish list items….
…..tomorrow is a big annual occasional sale here in Minneapolis – yay!!
