Yikes! I've neglected my poor little blog this week. I spent a few days working on my table and several hours of commuting in between. It was going to be my last week to have access to the woodshop so I was really pushing to finish it. It's almost finished, I just need to sand it and find a glass top for it. I was also hoping to route the edges but that'll have to wait.
I am also sad to say that this may be my last thrift share for a while. My thrifting runs have decreased and so have my finds. My time is going to be greatly limited starting next week because I am FINALLY gainfully employed! I am going to use whatever little free time I have to start selling on Etsy... yay!
So without much further ado... here are my latest goodies.
I know the scrabble letter trend is probably long gone by now but I couldn't resist. I wanted to make my own little sayings and use them for crafty purposes... maybe even my wedding (which has been on the back-burner).
I've also been trying really hard not to buy any more books. However, when I took a look inside of this book I couldn't help myself. It is a book on Japanese Progressive Quilts and some of the designs are simply stunning!
Since I've been dabbling in woodworking recently I found this motorcycle to be incredibly charming. It is all made out of reed and small piece of wood. How cool is that?
Despite finding quite a bit of Dansk goodies in the past I had never found a plastic tray. The tray was designed by Gunnar Cyren and makes a great addition to the current plastics collection I have going. I also found a sweet little teak condiment set complete with little teak spoons!
To satisfy my art obsession I found two beautiful (japanese?) inspired prints. The detail I really enjoy on the first one is how the tree branches extend beyond the 'frame' of the print.
I really love the composition of the second print. It is beautifully organic. They are both so whimsical and romantic...
I'll be linking up with Sophie, how about you?
