My parents(who are currently frolicing in NYC without me :( ) sent me up there on a mission to scope out the bookstore. They recently finished their year long remodel of their new home out here in the Valley, which has the one thing my mom has wanted her entire life: a library nook, complete with one of the ladders to fetch the books.
Problem: No books yet. Sure we have TONS of books, but my parents wants old ones with gorg covers and what not, so off I went.
Now, the bookstore was amazing. I can't wait until they go back. I didn't purchase anything there, though I did have to talk myself out of spening a mortage payment on a first edition gatsby. but I walked away.
Inspired by Coco&Kelly's patio series, I decided my mission for the day was to get some things to spruce up my patio to enjoy early morning coffee and blogging out there. Well, I failed. But got some amazing pieces! I went up there with 50.00, and only spent a few over my budget!
Here are the goodies!
Wicker caraf and mugs: These I would use for the patio, so I guess its a win.
Set of four hobnail mugs.I am starting to collect them, so this was a win. Currently they are living on my bookcase.
Chair! This was DEF my find of the day. I plan to recover it, though the current fabric isn't offensive, so it's going a little lower on the project list.
I scored these two lamps with shades. I put them on my media cabinet(which my dad informed me the technical name for is a salamander! isn't that funny!) It was looking really bare up there, so I am super pleased with how it looks
Price: 21.64 for both
This vintage shirt. I am not currently sure what I am going to wear it with, but I was thinking possible white jean capris or shorts.
This fabulous reworked vintage dress. I love the sparkles! I think it is a perfect Vegas dress.(note-that is not a stain on it. When I uploaded these and saw the mark, I panicked and ran back to my room to check. I must've just washed my hands or something.)
57.86! Not bad at all for all those goodies! I would've been good, but that dress was my last purchase and it was just divine!
Wanted to leave your with a cheery pic I took in the dressing room of Trina Turk in Palm Springs a few weeks ago! Brighten up your Monday!
