New Additions

New Hampshire: you're a magical little land when it comes to antique stores. A magical land indeed. I found some good luck over the past few days in New Hampshire... granted I don't need another thing, but - I certainly can't say no to old botany drawings!

$2 for each of these little dishes, sure - I'll take 'em both!

Polish yourself flatware at $1 a piece, okay - lemme have 23!

I'm totally in looooove with the way this old square of French tobacco smells. Uh-mayzing!

One of my favorite purchases of the week, this bark cloth catch all! My shipping supplies quickly went right into it and I'll be so happy to never have to wonder where I left the tape again!

I splurged a bit on this one .... (my birthday is coming up, I had to justify it somehow) But I need to stash those odds and ends somewhere!

I also bought a little foot rest that matches those $2 dishes just perfectly (pictures when it finds a home!) AND another one of these boxes (the floral tea box in the middle there!) I thought I was lucky to find one, now I have two!

And there's one other special new addition to my dress collection. A dreamy 20's drop waist dress in my all time favorite color combinations. Thank you Miss Amy Merrick, you're a saint for ever parting with this one!!!

Oh I really do love everything you've got! I'm obsessed with rose prints recently and I've spent about 2 months daydreaming of a certain cardboard box before actually buying it...Your shelves remind me of it a bit, but of course your shelves are much prettier! And those botanical prints are amazing! Too bad our thrift stores rarely carry any paper ephemera or household goods...And the dress is really gorgeous! Can't wait to see you in it!


ps- the blog is finally up, but still under construction and looking like hell.hope it will be filled with lovely things soon...
