Anxiety attack, but nothing that the Rose Bowl can't remedy.

So we finished the 9th episode saturday afternoon, and we have a week down to prep.  I celebrated with a couple mimosas and a slight nervous breakdown. One of those crying-at-dinner-for-no-real-reason episodes, which is awesome.  fake lashes falling off my face, husband just really confused, celebratory hamburger sitting cold.  I think i’m getting nervous about the premiere and the expectations surrounding it.  What Brian keeps reminding me is that i’m too close to it and that people will understand that its my first episode and forgive whatever mistakes they feel i’ve made – or not even notice them.  My self-criticism was beyond out of control.

But then i realized that i had worked 40 days in a row and probably was just very very tired.  I love it so much and i forget that while its incredibly enjoyable and probably what i would be doing sans tv crew anyway, it is technically very demanding.  We shoot four weeks in a row, 6 day weeks and shop on sundays.  Then we get a week of prep.  So while i considered taking yesterday off to give my body a break, the rose bowl called, i answered and it reminded me that its actually my favorite thing to do and that the happiness it brings me is far beyond ‘healthy’, so ‘work’ it is not.  

So with Orlando and Chris and a massive truck, i did some serious damage and got some stuff that i’m already having withdrawals from.

Brass morroccan coffee table:

A pair of these boys:  you all know i own one already that we are using in my studio, but having a pair of matching ones is kinda priceless.  i’m currently babysitting these in my apartment until their episode is up.  It’s like i’m their foster mommy, and until their permanent mommy is ready, i’ll love and appreciate the heck out of them, more than my permanent furniture actually.

Art Deco chair in PERFECT condition:

sorry, the sun was so bright this morning. But I think its really beautiful.  The fabric is chinese hot pink and green with roosters.  Original upholstery they said, but i don’t care.  i’m in love.  it might go into my new ‘studio’ set or the art deco meets 70’s glam episode might get it.  cockadooodledoo.

2 lucite and brass tray tables.  amazing condition.  

adorbes little regency slippers.  both for $225, and with my reupholsterers magic they are gonna be amazing.  

VINTAGE LAZY BOY RECLINER!!!!  

what??? i know, i know.  But i bought a set of them, and let me tell you something all ye lazyboy haters:  these things were invented for a reason. they be crazy comfy and functional.  these are from the late 70’s and i kinda love the shape of the arms.  They aren’t for everyone, but i have so many dudes who would love them.  And the upholstery is slightly dusty, but nothing that  a good trip to the cleaners won’t solve.  

And don’t worry, not every episode style is gonna be regency or 70’s, these are just my favorite things to show.  I also got this for a dude i have coming up who got terrified when i asked him if he liked vintage, but i think i can slip this in there and he’ll love it (and at $300 i saved a fortune on a leather club chair).

The picture is bad, but the leather on it is perfectly worn. 

OH and i bought this guy from Morgan aka The Brick House:

I know, she was crazy to sell it to me.  When i was out in the desert a while ago i bought some stuff from her and i told her if she ever wanted to part with it, she’s got a buyer.  And turns out she has style ADD like me and she’s over it, while i am still way way under it.  It’s going in my ‘studio’ set, and is gonna look dizope.
