Chores...and shopping

Girls, you don't know how long I have been eyeing up this adorable little doll cupboard. I keep coming back to check on it. It is in the basement of one of my favorite (though pricey) little shops. No bargains here. Wouldn't it make the most adorable little storage place for all my goodies?? I don't know...it's priced at $155 - which would be kind of hard to justify in my checkbook ledger. I just know one of these times I'll go back and it'll be gone!Maybe for my birthday...

Also, this enchanting dollhouse has been down there forever. I wanted take a picture of the inside, but that would have involved some real dicey moving around, and I could just imagine everything tumbling around all over me, and my having to explain I was trying to take a picture for you all! Doesn't it remind you of Tara!?


Now, they were not the most delicious thing I saw this weekend. For in the basement of my favorite shop (the one that carries my journals) I found THIS adorable 'cottage desk'! Girls, this is to die for!! Here is the front - sorry for the blur!






And here is the back - the side you'd sit on. The tiny drawers are gorgeous!!





I'm sorry the pics are so bad, but you get the gist. It was crammed in a corner, for crying out loud - I did the best I could! Girls, it was to die for. If I had one single empty inch in my house I would have thrown it in the back of my car right then and there!! (sigh)


I put some of my absolute favs on etsy today. I hope you like them.













I hope you're having a relaxing weekend. Let me know what you've been up to!

That cupboard is to die for!!--get it, get it! Who says you have to pay $155--haggle a little bit--offer $100, and they'll probably come back at $125. What a great birthday present it would be!

Beautiful stuff for your etsy!

I love the fact that these treasures are in the basement for goodness sake. At my favorite thrifty place all the best stuff is banished to the basement. I love digging around down there!
Thanks for taking me along for the thrifty "window shopping" trip!

Thanks for stopping by my blog with your comment. You're right ...this internet thing has really amazed me with nice connections more times than I can count.

You know, I do the same thing. I find something I like in a shop and I visit it over and over again. It always hurts a little when it is sold but the visits are nice and I just try to imagine that it is mine. I like Susan's idea about haggling. Sometimes they do accept offers especially if it has been there awhile.
