Flea Market Mondays

i’m pretty excited about my night tonight.  Brian and I have romantic plans. Oh yes, ladies and gentlemens, i am getting fed, i am getting cuddled and i am getting my twilight on – the third in the series of one intellectually indefensable yet unrelentingly addictive vampire series that i already saw in the theatre by myself, but Brian has yet to have the privelidge.  Brian pretends like he’s not into it, but then i remind him that sometimes when he’s feeling sentimental for high school he listens to Counting Crows, so its ok feel emotional emotions.  My emotions are super emotional, by the way. 

 Why I do digress don’t i?

PCC kinda blew (for those of you who don’t know, the flea market travels around every sunday – Rose bowl is the best, then long beach, then PCC, then Santa monica).  The real dealers aren’t really there, but sometimes there are people who are just trying to sell their parents stuff and they don’t know what they should be selling them for, so it can be cheap.

Introducing my new 80’s peacock blue throne!

I am the queen!  i know, there is something super cheesy about it, but something pretty attractive, too. It’s velvet, worn, super comfy and was $15.  not a bad price, my friends.  it’s going to make my rump pretty happy,

I love this little burl table. I know that there are strong feelings against these guys, but i’m into em.

I think it was $25 or $35, without the glass. and then i got the glass for fifty cents at a different vendor.  

Such a cutie.  like a little old man in a little pointy hat. 

Finished up Joy and Bob’s room and let me  tell you that a whole room of a certain wallpaper looks effing amazing.  

Off to a huge loft in Long Beach.  Which might involve gnomes.  

Now leave me be with my teenage dramas.  



  1. joy

    very happy about your one-on-one romantic plans. bob and i went to see the counting crows together TWICE back in the day…it's like the mid-90's all over again. and yes, effing amazing is right!

    that orange lamp is incredible!! love it & your funny posts. i know you are incredibly busy but so glad you have time to show us the goodies you find. i am a thrifting/craigslist fool & love to see what you find!

  3. Tonia

    I did a little thrifting this weekend too. I love the orange lamp, but is that a brass lamp I spy in the back?

  4. I don't know how you always manage to put together a bunch of stuff that doesn't relate and make it RELATE, but it's like magic. :) I actually love the blue throne … because it's totally you. Yea!

  5. Cassi

    …I'm all about the Twilight series as well…No, at 26, I am not too old. But, for real, that blue velvet is crush-worthy. Painting the legs red or orange would be snazzy, if you're in to that. ;) Great finds!

  6. Monica

    Anyone else seeing a plucked supermarket chicken holding up that glass table top?

  7. Emily- So behind- I need to read the book first before I see even the first Twilight Movie!

    It's not mentioned in the mag, but the Brazilian beach "tree house" in the new January issue of Architectural Digest was the film set (honeymoon) for the next Twilight movie!


  8. HA! Monica..I saw Pan…or goat man rear end..there was a hoofishness in my vision-and I'm a burl lover, must be the angle…what a steal!

  9. Ann

    My husband has always loved the burl (or is it burled?) wood. It has very slowly grown on me. Your throne is lovely and just the right color! Hope you enjoyed the r and r last night.
