at last.  today was filled with sunny skies and warm(ish) weather.  a nice respite from the raw temps we can’t seem to shake. 

saw “sunshine cleaning” today because isn’t that what you’re supposed to do when the weather is glorious?  go indoors and watch a matinee?   anyway, all i can say is, “it’s about time.”  i’ve seen a couple STINKER movies lately and i was craving a real movie with real characters.  this one fit my bill.  not for everyone, maybe, but i enjoyed it. 

the sun was still shining when i came out of the theater and i, of course, headed indoors again.  yes, to the thrift stores.  snagged another amazing vintage decorating book – one that is certain to help me with my imaginary interior design degree.  “the apartment book.”  1979.dscf0483dscf0479dscf0480dscf0482dscf0481 i’ve got an orange pendant lamp just like that yellow one in the picture above dying to be installed in a ceiling somewhere.  i’ve also got a couple of those thonet bentwood armchairs (2 pics above) dying to be utilized in a house with more space.  the house hunt continues on….

speaking of orange lamps, i’m pretty sure this is amazing.  (?)  it’s a vintage lightolier, missing a globe?  missing a shade?  great tulip shape.  a steal at $4. dscf0478_editedi think.

Nice base! Would you be willing to sell it?

Oh……I ended up finding an original shade for it and it’s now one of my favorite lamps….she’s a keeper.
