john and i had originally planned on going to the beach for our big one year anniversary…
but since i ended up scheduling shoots for sunday, monday, and tuesday (yay!)
we decided to stay home and spend all day saturday doing whatever we wanted
(hanging out and going shopping)
and most of today doing the same :)
we ran errands and then met up with our good friend charles for a photo shoot (he needed some head-shots done for some stuff involving his hilarious comedy – which you should definitely check out… shows happen monday nights at coffee underground among other places throughout the week). charles is one of those people who doesn’t think he is photogenic but of course is.
and then we continued our monday funday with lots of thrift store shopping goodness. we found so many amazing treasure, i couldn’t not post a blog about it ;)
please excuse the disgusting flash photography. it is dark in my house and i don’t feel like messing with it :P
first up, an amazing new chair to put at my computer desk so that i can plop myself into something that is actually comfortable as i sit for hours editing pictures.
yay yay yay. $10!
and then we have BRAND NEW naturalizer shoes. so comfy. perfectly red. and definitely only $4.
a lovely wine rack for all of that wine i keep telling myself i’m going to become a connoisseur of ;)
don’t worry, i have BIG plans for this baby – so keep an eye out.
fake cat. not to be confused with the real cat to its right.
another treasure that i have big plans for :)
a breadmaker! you have no idea how excited i am about this. i really hope it still works… still in the box with a $130 price tag.
yep. i got it for $5
vintage corduroy blue ottoman… teppei has apparently claimed this.
so… do you have any idea how much i love vintage cameras?
both of these beauties cost me less than $2. i could cry with joy even still.
and lastly… if you or anyone you know is having a baby at some point in the near future – get excited!
i found these two amazing props for photo shoots that i cannot wait to use!
vintage highchair…. so adorable… hopefully i will be able to talk teppei into letting me borrow it…
definitely only $10!
and this vintage cradle:
i am planning on sanding and painting/or staining it… and definitely making a new “mattress/pillow” for it.
i am kind of thinking an awesome yellow geometric style fabric would be adorable and very unisex :)
i will keep you updated on my progress.
and there you have it. one of the most exciting thrifting days ever :)
