We were in centro running a few errands, getting our hair cut and a bite of lunch. As we were walking down to the bank, what did we pass but a Bazaar and this one was the "mother load"!:) Remember a while back I told you that here thrift stores really don't exist. But oh my I'm sure I fell down the rabbit hole and died and gone to Junkin Heaven!! You know the kind where every available surface is packed with this and that and nothing goes together? I was like a kid in Willy Wonka's factory... Oh look, oh and look over there, and this is cool, but that's even cooler. Out of the corner of my eye I could see both LW and the owner rolling their eyes and shaking their heads :) You know LW is so patient and has earned his wings many times over!!He never complains and he never yells even when I do the "OH MY GOD STOP!! Stop right now" thing. ;)
I was feeling pretty proud of myself cuz I only had 2 funky spoons and an old ladle in my hands and tucked under my arn was this old text book with the most perfect yellowed pages.
Oh and look this little stamp says in Spanish the book belongs to Jaime. Then I reach the back of the store. You know were all the really coolish stuff is crammed? :) At first I thought it was an old "be still my heart" beat up crown. Cuz crowns are on my got to have list along with a dress maker dumm..er form :) But after I dug it out and pulled it up I discovered it was an old brass and glass out door lantern, that's about 2 ft in lenth Ohhhh soooo cool just the perfect amount of rust and green patina. And the good thing is there are only 3 little panes of glass missing :)yippee:) LW promised to take it to the glass store down the street and have the new panes cut!! Now the decision is do I ask LW to wire it for a light bulb or do I go with the awesome glow only a candle can give?? What do you guys think??
LW brought home a beautiful bouquet of red roses this afternoon to put an exclamation point on a lovely year :)
Please stay safe my fellow Bloglandians if you are out there in all the New Years Eve craziness. I hope all of you have the most audacious 2009 filled will all of the wonderful memories you can pack in. ;)
