Please do NOT feel bad if I did not mention you, as I said, I will be awarding everyone because I love all of your blogs!
(I usually don't get included in these so I know how it feels lol)
Yikes I don't have time right now to link all the names to the blogs, but these are all in my blogroll located to the right.
Thanks again VeggieMama!
And a footnote: I know someone gave me an award a few months ago and I lost the image! If I see it on another blog again, I will post it. Thanks again!
The Philco Predicta TV sold for $730 + $125 s/h. Not bad considering the reproduction models probably cost as much or more. I still have no clue because they don't tell you on any of their websites.
And because I am realizing I need BIG lamps for my BIG living room rather than the several pair of bedside sized lamps I already have I debated and debated over this pair of majestic lamp shades in hopes of buying the bases at a later date...
But I chickened out and they sold for just over $100 each, $200 for the pair.
Not bad, all things considered, but then I'd have to wait and wait for a pair of Majestic lamp bases to come up for auction.
Sometimes accumulating the "right" stuff ain't easy lol.
I have my eye on this pair of lamps BUT the shades are brown. I don't have brown in any of the rooms as a dominant color.
They are selling them separately which sucks (man and woman) and yet try though I might, I just can't think of how I'd incorporate them into any of my rooms with that brown shade. But I do like them.
Did I say how hard it is to collect the "right" stuff?
And I still have my eye on a repro Calder mobile for the living room.
The colors are perfect, but at $120, not exactly cheap!
Still, it would be perfect and save me the trouble of trying to make one......
I edited the photo, so they are not as yellow as this. I had to bump up the brightness and contrast to show them better.
I have a thing for Sputnik. If I can figure out my printer I can photograph these and make my own posters. The seller of the posters mentioned above never replied to my email asking about their size anyways.
You snooze you lose!
Love the vintage space race items. Have my eye on a couple other choice things.
It's small! Maybe the person holding it in the photo has freakishly small midget hands? Strange. The auction gave the size, showed the photo of the lady holding it, but it sure does look smaller in person!
Ahh well, it will still cover up the small hole in the wall where the thermostat used to be (until I can get that going again somewhere down the line) and even small, it looks wonderful.
Have my eye on a vintage space card game set ending any minute now, but I keep telling myself to get "fewer bigger" items rather than a lot of smaller items. It's tough to let some of these things pass by! I want everything!
But even as cool as it is, a set of cards? The graphics are fantastic, but do what with them? Frame them? Ugh...
Do you have this kind of problem, tormenting yourself over each potential purchase, or is it my half-Jewish half-Catholic (at twice the guilt) upbringing? Arg! Oy vey! Hail Mary!
OK, all I have been doing is slowly painting my living room and sweating over my choice of color. So it helped me to see a photo of a retro interior using dark walls. This is one of my wishes, that it turns out this good. And these are the colors I plan on using. (well, more gray rather than the white, but black and red accents).
And because the topic of watching paint dry is so painfully boring, let me ask all of you a question...
If you had a magic wand and could wave it, what would YOU have?
Would your home be designed a certain way?
Would you want something vintage in particular?
Would you go back in time to another era as it is, or would you want some modern conveniences to take with you?
OK, I ALMOST clawed my eyes out when I missed the ending time of yet another screaming deal auction on a super fine Eames chair, perfect for my desk in the Maser bedroom that sold for only $19. I'd show you a photo of it, but I was so upset I deleted the auction as soon as I realized I had missed it by minutes.
And while I was kicking my own rump and wishing a pox on myself I realized too late there were a couple other auctions ending just after the chair auction. Yup, missed those too. *rolls eyes*
I pride myself on being able to remember a billion inconsequential details of all the clients I speak to via my businesses, and this morning I mistook one client with the same name for another, so I go on to ask if he had been to his friends' daughters bat mitzvah and blah blah... Turns out it was the WRONG freakin' client. Ugh!! Duh!
Sooooo when I won this awesome large warm colored two tiered vintage fiberglass lampshade like I have been looking for since last year at a steal for $12, it just about made up for the cruddy day I'd been having so far!
Thank goodness for the good deals on eBay, and reading all your blogs to keep me sane!
Painting in the living room is progressing still, but ho hum I want it to be done already! Curse this old lady body of mine and it's aches and pains lol...
