I went to a consignment shop today just to see what they had. I don't need a thing at all, that's for sure, but it's fun to look sometimes. No shopping for me, just looking.
I haven't seen redwood furniture in ages. It seems like everyone had a set in Michigan when I was growing up. Funny thing is that I really wanted this set as soon as I saw it. No plastic, no glass, it probably wasn't made in China either. It'd look great on my porch right now and it's the perfect size.
$227.50 is probably a pretty good price, but I wasn't shopping today. I'll forget about this set in a few days, but it's just so perfect. I'd love to have it.
Then I saw this mirror. I really liked the round part in the square part, but it was a bit too curlicue for me. It was on it's last discount and it's only about $18, but I'm not sure I can make it mine. I've got such a short memory these days I'll probably forget I saw this :)
This is a nice hutch, beautiful dovetailed drawers and a nice big area underneath. The coolest thing were these ceramic drawers. I just can't believe that none of them had been broken. If I owned this I'd have broken one on day one!
I find it interesting that one of the big drawers is labeled currants. Were currants used that much to have a drawer made for it? I think I've only used currants for Christmas baking and only once or twice.
I adore these. ADORE! They are ethnic, have palm trees growing out of window boxes, show buildings and doorways and arches.
I just knew though, that if I purchased these pictures, I'd get the redwood furniture, too.
Don't feel bad for me. I have a a garage full of furniture and assorted stuff and I have a storage closet full of paintings and pictures. I'll get over it :)
I hope you have a great week!
