Hey everyone. It is September and that is mind-boggling to me. And also exciting because I like September, being the Libra, sapphire wearing girl that I am.
Something else mind-boggling AND exciting is one of my vacation finds. (See how I transitioned there? So awkward and great. Yeah.) At any rate, back in July I was dreaming of many things and one of them was a vintage tri-fold vanity mirror. At the beginning of our week off from work, I grabbed JT and towed him along with me to the Green Shag Market. There in one of the corner booths almost immediately upon entering was my vintage tri-fold vanity mirror. And the price tag said (only) $22!
Something about the crazy light in my eyes or the way I clutched at the mirror tipped JT off to the fact that I intended to purchase this thing, stat. He immediately carried it up to the front desk so I could finish making my rounds. There were a few other things that caught my eye but in the end we only left with the mirror. Once I showed JT my now-prophetic post with such a similar image of a tri-fold mirror did he understand the insanity he had just been witness to.
And now it’s home, living on my dressing table in our bedroom. I had this paper lantern light fixture hanging out in the basement of shame. I’m pretty sure I bought it at Pier One in high school to decorate my peach, pink, green and teal awesomeness of a bedroom.
Still need to hem those curtains though! Also I’ll probably work on getting the cord rigged up a little better and probably painting the part that shows up against the grey wall.
Methinks I need a cuter alarm clock — any ideas?
The little lightning bolt on the desk I found on the ground in front of the Green Shag on my first visit there. Since then I have found one other random lightening bolt in the parking lot on my way to work (it’s red vinyl). I think they keep showing up like little love letters from Elvis, king of TCB and lightening bolts.
This week on Mister Modtomic I am rounding up Panton S chairs. Wouldn’t one of those look nice at my dressing table? I do love my little lucite and white vinyl stool though. And seriously, any suggestions on a working alarm clock that would round out my vignette is much appreciated (and preferably not one I have to wind every day.) Cheers – CT
