New Finds.

Last weekend, I did a little antiquing with my little sister. While I like it, I think she might be in love with it. We planned a few days in advance and I happen to follow both places we were planning on going to on facebook, Piccadilly Prairie and Hunt & Gather. Both places are in Minneapolis and they happen to be down the street from each other. There are quite a few more great places in the area, but those two are our favorite. Piccadilly Prairie had posted this painting on their page the day before we left and I couldn't stop thinking about it, hoping they still had it by the time we made it over there.

I had to ask if they still had the painting... I had totally walked by and missed it. I still liked it just as much and I knew if I didn't get it, I would be kicking myself later...

Look at all the texture! It's really not my normal style, but I just had to have it. It's a little beat up, but I think that gives it some of its character.

I don't really have a spot for it now, but I believe that I will... Once this basement is all done and I have moved my office down there, I plan on redoing what is my office at this very moment. The plan is to paint it, fix up the wonky baseboards and make it in to a guest room / sewing room / personal office. I guess that's basically what it is now minus my official job stuff, plus a bed. If what envision turns out right, it will fit perfectly.

I also came across these fabulous tins. Again, I'm not really sure where they're going to live. The obvious response is the kitchen... I drink coffee, but not tea. I'm not sure that keeping coffee in that would be that convenient. I think for now, they're just going to hang out where ever until we have a normal home again.

There were a few other things that I found and loved, but was aiming to not spend too much. I might actually run over there right now to see if something is still there... Maybe.
