Hello! Here are some more little bits and pieces from around the home that I thought I'd share...
We bought an Ikea expedit and so far, it's turned out to be a great little book shelf. Here is one of the cubby squares, holding books, old cameras and a little bronze deer figurine (side note: I'm obsessed with bronze animal figurines! I hope to collect a veritable menagerie one day...)
Another shelf, LIFE books are the BEST! Amazing photos inside. All found at thrift stores.
On top of the book shelf. I found the coral lamp base at a thrift store and it was dirty, gross, dingy, etc. I painted it white and found a lamp shade at the Goodwill (side note: the Goodwill's, at least in Orange County, always get TONS of donations from Target. It's a good source for home goods, I found the lamp shade, brand new, at one). I thought the lamp could use a little something extra so I ran over to JoAnne's and bought some pompom trim for the shade. And of course, there's the bronze duck friend Pictured record: Ty Segall
The beginnings of our gallery wall. The black and white photo is one I found at a thrift store and recently, I had to open up the back and re-affix the photo to the mat because it was slipping. It turns out the photo was taken for a photography class at a school in Los Angeles during the 1930s! There was a small grading sheet on the back of the photo, how awesome is that? I found the wooden display shelf at the Goodwill (I was hunting for a typeset tray but this was just as good) and knew that it would be the perfect thing to display mine and Grant's found natural treasures and curiosities. I painted the back wall of the shelf white and distressed it, I think it lets the shells, crystals, minerals, shark egg sacks
-shudders- stand out nicely.
I'm crazy for terrariums (who isn't these days), I made this one for the dining room table.
One of my favorite thrift stores finds! Love this chair, love the lines, love that it was less than $20 at the Salvation Army.
Obsessed with this silk, patchwork pillow. I thrifted the cover and bought two little pillow inserts at Ikea for super cheap. The patchwork and color reminds me of work from the artist Thomas Campbell
