Really, do we find our great stuff or hunt for it? I mean I've never walked outside and just found something awesome sitting by the front porch, unless I've paid the shipping and handling. Search is actually a better description, I'm always searching stores and online, but I like the word HUNT better.
So I'll just show you want I hunted and gathered this week, I'm just like a caveman, well without the big stick. Remove the big stick and insert my bank card and there you have it, I'm a modern day Hunter Gatherer!
Stick around till the end, I have an announcement or two.
First up, a pair of these beautiful chairs! The are from the Brown Palace, it's an old Hotel in Colorado. Tea house too I think? Anyway they are for Lo's room and are pretty just the way they are!
Check out my little chicken, I've never seen them so small, so I had to have this one! Really. Plus it looks so cute with the bigger chicken.
Ahhhhhh, my dough bowl! It's pretty big too, love the color of the wood. I'm addicted to dough bowls, I hope to hunt and gather many more!
Okay, remember the coffee table I turned into and ottoman? Well the other day on craigslist I hunted up the sofa table match! I'm going to use them together in the next house, so I think my coffee table turned ottoman will be turning back to a coffee table.
Look at this gorgeous fireplace screen. I can't wait to paint it and change the fabric. I do like flowers, just not stained ones. and the wood is too light for me, I prefer the darker variety.
Okay maybe this was a find. Lo asked for a magnifying glass for Christmas, my girl friend found it for me when we where out looking around the other day. She said 'hey check out the cool magnifying glass' and I said 'hey I need that!' I think she thought I was joking until I paid for it. Solid brass and mother of pearl inlay! What 4 year old wouldn't want it?
Brown transferware, I just love this stuff, when ever I go out I'm always on the hunt for a good deal. This stuf can be super pricey, but I feel good about my $12 pitcher.
Ahhhhh angle wings! I've been hunting for these forever! I would love a really big pair, like the ones they sell at Creative Co-Op, but I still have to get my Sales and Use Tax something or other, before I can shop with them. Any one with an active Creative Co-Op account?
Okay, so there you have it, what I hunted and gathered recently. A few of the items are at least a month old, but I figured better late than never.
Okay, so announcement #1. What do you think about a party just for finds? I was thinking of starting a party just about finds. You can include your favorite stores and methods of hunting and what you brought home. I'm gonna do test run tomorrow, so come back and party with me!
Announcement #2, who would like to participate in a Christmas blog celebration? I would love 24 blogger friends to do a daily post, like an Advent calendar of posts for the blog. You could do anything Christmas/Holiday/Seasonal. Really anything, a tablescape, tutorial, home tour, recipe, tradition, anything. If you want to participate let me know right away, I'll need every one's post right away. Well some would have more time than others, but the first few in December would have to get me theirs...you see where this is going?
