Happiness is: Vintage Table & Mug

Yesterday was a pre-birthday celebration with my dear friend Michele & my goddaughter Astrid. Not only did we eat at my favourite breakfast joint (Starlite Dining Lounge) but we also thrift-shopped at my equally favourite Sally Ann. I was in my glory. I left with BAGS full of goodies, both for myself (I'm allowed to be self-indulgent - it's almost my birthday!) and for my Etsy shop.

The last thing I picked up as I was heading out was a fabulous vintage ('60s or early '70s) telephone table. I was so smitten, and really needed a side table for my living room, that I bought it without a 2nd thought. So happy am I!


The yummy butterscotch colour of the vinyl & faux wood, as well as the delicate bronze wire work are a perfect match to my '60s couch.

I also came home with this lovely glass pedestal mug, perfect for my "poor man's latte'!

It will take may posts to get through all the vintage goodness that I hunted that glorious pre-birthday day. I never need to thrift again! (okay, that was an overstatement... but definitely not for a whole week or two!).

Coming soon: 1960s Mary Tyler Moore style wedding dress (dreamy!)
