New Inventory Coming Soon!

I've been picking like crazy at estate sales, thrift stores and prop houses.   It's been fun but exhausting, especially because now I bring along my precious Audric who is only 9 weeks old.

Here is a look at some of my haul. I'm also bringing in a Danish modern rope rocking chair and a Eero Saarinen style wood & naugahyde arm chair in the next couple of days.   I'll be adding items to my shop in the next couple of weeks.

Oh yes, the Plycraft chair is staying with me!

I want to keep this so badly but there is no space for it....waaaaaah

Craigslist Love.

It's been a long time since I have posted my Craigslist Love(s).  I spent some time this morning browsing Craigslist here (Los Angeles) and sipping my coffee....while baby slept. Ahhhh, some alone time. ;D

Here's what I found....

Not exactly my style but this could look incredibly cool in the right space. And don't you just love that chevron?!

Drool.  Wouldn't you love to bring this baby back to life? I am in love with this chair.  
Project chair: It needs new upholstery. 

Love this.  Everything about it.... love love love.  How cool is the little glass encased top shelf?

I'm a sucker for Paul McCobb so naturally I like this chair.  How can you beat that beautiful minimalism and clean lines?  

Nice lines. Gorgeous wood grain.  What else can I say?

I've never been a huge fan of arc lamps, but this one has such a cool mod, space-age design I would splurge on it. 

Love the design on these nightstands.  I've personally always preferred to refinish mid century pieces back to their original state but I have to say I'm being swayed by some of the painted pieces I've seen lately.  

I love the built in magazine rack on the side. 

Serious drool. If you've been following my blog you know I have a love affair with Brasilia design.  This would be the ultimate score for my home, though not for $900, sigh.

Living in the 1950's.

Who caught TLC's "My Crazy Obsession" episode of Doris Mayday, a modern-day woman living in her own 1950's world?

From her home furnishings, to her clothes, makeup, and the car she drives, Doris lives like it was 1950.   Even her boyfriend partakes in the lifestyle wearing 1950's clothing.  Check it out HERE.

If it didn't exist in the 50's Doris does not use or partake in it. That means she does not have a cell phone, she watches a television from the 1950's and even limits the music she listens to to that of the 50's era.  Even her undergarments are from this era...imagine that!  

In this episode she brought in a 50's etiquette coach so she could learn how to be more like the women of this time - i.e. proper.  A few tips were: A lady only shakes a hand with one pump. Today's 3 pump shake is too strong and masculine for a woman. Second, the woman of the house would always offer to take a guests coat upon entry to her home and would introduce herself as "Miss Doris Mayday".
