Thrift finds


Went on a treasure hunting expedition: I was very happy of this find at mrs Huizenga: a lovely blue towel with folky motif on it of flowers and fowl. Charming! also a modern-style spoon and a kitsch horn-imitation fork. I collect all sort of different utensils and when guests comes, I create a different setting for each person: it's fun! I try to use a lot of bright colours.

Also found an old potato smasher. I had seen a whole bunch at mrs Huizenga's but didn't want to spend a lot of money on them, so I was very pleased to find an exact same one just below at Goodwill! You don't always get lucky there, their selection is generally pretty lame, but there's always exceptions! When I do find something, it's really pretty great... and cheap!

And last but not least found an old VHS of "message in a bottle" movie. I thought it would be just ok, I'm not a huge fan of Kevin Cosner, but actually it was great, the actress, Robin Wright Penn did a fantastic job, such a great character! It made me feel all romantic and in love with love again!

Ha!

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.
Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL

Sincerely,
Jesse
