ain't it funny...

today i am grateful for...





adding a new antique store to my menagerie. pretty funny antiques is a pretty adorable lil' victorian house in tarrytown, new york. the whole house is brimming over with irresistible junk-y goodness. i saw many things i wish i had room for.

what sweet spectacles! a true sight for sore eyes, but i had my eye on a particular mad scientist pair...

and a pair of saucy black and white wing-tipped brogues.

and a sweet stuffy for francie.

and an old thread spool cabinet. ooh this made my heart go a pitter patter.

and i had many a reminder of projects to finish in decorating my own apartment...

pretty funny 9

...like hanging my collection of old photos and artwork. geez louise, i haven't hung a single thing yet. shameful.

...and rearranging my many suitcases.

pretty funny 7

...and solving my impossible shoe storage situation.

we all walked away with a humble pile each. chelsea found a pair of witchy boots and an early christmas present for a pal. i also found a christmas gift for my sweet pete. and a few other bits and bobs that i will share later. i had to leave behind a pair of specs and a perfect, reasonably sized leather purse that i might have to phone for after my next paycheck...

So many lovely things! O, those glasses... and those wooden clothespins... and those perfectly worn suitcases...

I keep all my shoes in an old bookcase in the hall. It actually works pretty well, as long as I keep them somewhat tidy!

What a cool place! I wish I could wonder around there. The spools of thread are especially lovely. I love coming to your blog... I always get so much visual inspiration and I love your upbeat attitude!
