Yin and Yang

I caught my gals cuddling today, a rare occurrence.  How sweet are they?

Thrift Share - Sippin' on the Dock of the Bay

I'm dreaming of a lakeside cabin, "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay", and drinking the day away.  
Fishing poles by my side with these Glass Floats & Bobbers adding a just a touch of Vintage charm.
Though I don't know much about about Glass Floats, there are several websites dedicated to collecting them.  I believe these are hand blown and they are stamped NW with Pat Pend and a serial number on the bottom thats very hard to make out.  They were all in a box at a garage sale the other day for a whopping $3.  I couldn't resist the color and beauty of of the glass, and the vintage cork & wood floats were in the box too!
At the same yard sale, I picked up this pretty Walnut Tray by Vermillion.
It was never used, and still wrapped in the original plastic.  The handles swivel for easy storage & carrying & it has pretty little feet on the bottom.  Just perfect for carrying my drinks to the dock to waste the day away!
Though I'm sure my weekend will not include a lakeside cabin or fishing, I sure can hope for the day.

I'll be linking up to Selena's & Sophie's again this week, so be sure to check out all of the other fun finds there too!

Thrift Share - This and That

I've come across a few fun things here and there over the past few weeks.  What do you think?

I just adore this Cartier Change Purse.  After my recent visit to Europe I recognize the importance of a proper place to stash my I'm keeping this one for myself.
It's a beautiful black leather with Gold accents & I'd guess it's circa 1960s or 1970s's.  Anyone know?

I almost walked away from this fun Couroc Ice Bucket.  It was all taped up at the Salvation Army so I couldn't peek inside.  In addition it was way overpriced.  Is it me, or are all of Salvation Army's in SoCal way overpriced?  When I walked it to the register however, the sales clerk gave me a deal so I decided to roll the dice.  There is a small crack on the bucket liner, but I think it's still ok.   
SOLD - Couroc Bird Ice Bucket
"Printing Outfit Superior: The Little Printer"  is a pretty neat little vintage Letterpress Printing Set.  It contains all of the letters, typeholders, tools and more to bring any typesetting project into reality. 
SOLD - The Little Printer
It would be perfect for artist and crafters young & old...and it's already made it's way into my Etsy shop.
As you probably know by know, I'm crazy for art books & love finding new additions for my library...this Goodbye Picasso book by David Douglas Duncan is pretty great.

Linking up & looking forward to seeing all of the other lovely finds this week over at Sophie's and Selena's.

Cheers ~ Lara
