Hunted::Gathered: 04/17/11

Hey all! I hope you've had a great week. I've been feeling just a tad under the weather and didn't blog as much as I would have liked. I did manage to go out thrifting but did not come home with too much loot.

I found another bag that quickly replaced the one I was planning to take on my trip to Florida. I couldn't resist the springtime glory that it embodied. It just needs a good wash.

I also found this cute Dansk Kobenstyle Butter Warmer.

Surprisingly I also found a set of 3 Iittala Festivo Candlesticks designed by Timo Sarpaneva. They aren't etched on the bottom with TS so I believe they are newer. I found a 3-ring (not pictured), 4-ring (not pictured), and a 5-ring. It's the first time I've gotten an Iittala item so I was pretty excited.

I don't know why I have been on a jewelry kick. It really isn't an area I'm comfortable in but I haven't been able to resist the urge. I found two pairs of silver earrings. The first ones are by Shube Manufacturing located in New Mexico. They mainly did Native styled pieces but these earrings didn't strike me as such. Their mark is like that of a dollar sign and it was fun doing the research for it.

This second set was made in Mexico. The earrings were really dirty on the back so I couldn't read the label on one of them. I took a small gamble. They are pretty after all.

I decided to include just two of my book finds this week. The first one features several homes that incorporate both living and working spaces. They also include plans that I can study which is what I like most about the book. This book can be found at very low prices but when there are so many design related books out there it's hard to keep track of them all. I just buy them when I see them because I would not have known about them otherwise.

Just like this History of Modern Furniture book. This used to be a part of the FDIM library but someone decided it was time to take it out of circulation. That's ok with me because I still find it plenty useful. Now if only I could get my hands on a vintage Modern California Houses: Case Study Houses by Esther McCoy.

Linking up with:


  1. I LOVE HAT BUTTERFLY tote! Have fun while here in Florida!

  2. i LOVE that sweet bag and that butter warmer is little gem!

  3. That's cool you found the multi-ring Iittala TS candles. I've still only found a pair of the 2-ring ones - I keep hoping to score them especially since sometimes they're not marked, but no luck so far.

  4. I like the bag and ear rings!

    love from mongs

  5. The butterfly bag is gorgeous and looks like it could fit a lot in there-- a great bag for summer.

    I adore vintage jewelry, you found two pairs of wonderful earrings!
