wake up!

Sorry for the sleepy blog lately - I blame it on technology. My powerbook that I've spent the last four years with has finally bite the dust.... It was a long time coming, so I'm not completely devastated - but, that means that I have to start working extra hard to get the etsy shop up and going. This weekend was really promising, we made some great purchases, really great ones! And my new digital camera came this weekend, so taking photos will be so much easier. I don't have a tripod, so it's just finding the time with friends to take photos... The computer thing is a really great motivation though!

(everything you see here will be on etsy in the upcoming days!)

It's much too late for me right now - but I want to share some photos from our flea market adventure this weekend...

This is the little AM radio of my dreams. It's a vintage tube amp and it takes a minute or so to warm up before it starts playing. Boston has an amazing station that plays really charming old songs, 740 - The Memory Station, and I'm currently listening to one of my favorite polka tune. I'm so happy we found this today because it's been in my daydreams for far too long! I don't want to leave this room....



I found this elephant alongside a sad panda bear - the elephant I gave to Alice because she loves them and once a psychic told her she had a past life experience with them! As for the panda, I'm practicing some control and I'll eventually put him up for sale.

Ouah, I love that radio! I want to find an old wireless... and I love that you can get good, eclectic radio stations there. Old polka would be great – I love it!

I love it!
I have a problem with lovely old bears....I can't resist adopting them all when they're abandonned in a flee market's dirty box, with their poor looks in the eyes....
