"Two end tables, two arc lamps, a purse, and a satin jumper"
or, "an all-girl shopaholic valentine's day weekend.
spent the weekend with fabulous food, wine, sex-and-the-city DVDs, coughing like a three-pack-a-day smoker (this cold is hell on my throat, but fabulous for tightening the abdominals) and catching up with hannah and her beautiful puppies.
I've also finally gotten around to using my digital camera on a regular basis....I'm not very good at standing still to avoid blurriness, or deciding when to use flash...and am very very lazy about photoshopping....but, what the hell. . . I present to you, a few photos of the weekend with Hannah and her puppies and our thrift store adventure.
The Lovely Lola dog.
Lola's newly adopted spastic sibling, Addy
The Amazing Hannah, who will probably kill me for posting photos even though she is the most stunning human being I've ever had the pleasure of mooching off of.
Hannah praises Addy for not jumping on the bed.
Ms. Hannah, looking mysterious in a sparkly red chapeau.
Ms. PicturePicture, looking ridiculous in same.
we can't resist buying typewriters at thriftstores...
nor can we resist buying black satin pantsuits with pearly-rhinestone appliques, especially when they make our waists look teensy-tiny.
Yes. those are pants.
Pay no attention to the weirdly over-muscled arms and totally gay pose of the weblady - she'd probably never have posted this pic if she'd eaten anything other than cough drops and robitussen tablets for three days straight.
we did buy two fabulous dark-wood haywood-wakefield knockoff end tables, and two amazing chrome arc lamps, but I didn't get pics because we were busy carrying them down the street from the shop to the apt. . . thanks to everyone who honked at us yesterday afternoon instead of stopping to help. really. we appreciate all your help. especially since arc lamp number 2 had 20 lbs of (vintage!) concrete embedded in its base. from the bottom of our hearts, thanks.
eh, who am I kidding. I probably would have honked too. and pointed and laughed.
happy valentine's day, folks!
