It's good to be Back

I'm back...and so is my computer!  
After a month of not being fixed properly, its so wonderful to have my Mac Back!!!
Now I can rejoin the thrift share parties, get my shop updated, and edit photos again.  
Here are some of my finds from the past few weeks...
This 1982 Arabia of Finland plate was still in the box & the design is just divine!  It'll be making it's way in the shop soon.
I did a quick search on google for Maxwell before throwing this little vase in my buggy.   I've been doing some research on Robert Maxwell, and he has some beautiful pottery...though I'm finding values all over the board.   I love the texture and pattern on this simple piece and think I'll hold onto this one for my own collection.
The abstract angles of this Dansk Designs Austria water pitcher are really fun.  I picked it up at the local Goodwill and think I'll make a great addition to the shop.
I'm so ready for spring, especially after this cold, rainy, windy weekend here in SoCal.  Nothing says spring like a fun little vintage dress!  These will all be listed really soon, though I may have to wear the little purple asian inspired beauty a few times before I decide if I can let it go.  Sooo cute!
And for the not so warm days, how amazing is this vintage leather jacket!  The leather is buttery soft and the hand drawn/painted design is really fantastic!
Not that I need anymore art books, but how could I pass up this fun vintage Assemblage one?
Last but not least, a whole heap of vintage Ephemera...for free!!!  You know what they say, one mans trash is another mans treasure.  I was at my storage unit and the owner of the complex was throwing away a bunch of stuff left in a unit.  I volunteered to take these old albums off his hands.  Theres some fun older photos, and obviously someone was a huge "Million Dollar Man" fan back in the day. Lol.

I look forward to checking out all of your finds I'm happy to be linking up with Selena & Sophie again after quite a long absence.

Cheers ~ Lara


  1. Good to have you back. You found some wonderful pieces. I find that dansk water pitcher to be quite stunning!

  2. i'll have to keep an eye on that gorgeous creamy dress (top right) in your etsy shop, it's so pretty and feminine. actually, i'm just going to have a look at your shop right now, it looks like there are some lovely things in there! great finds.

  3. I love both the Arabia plate and the Maxwell vase. Both are favorites of mine. I sold a Maxwell ashtray last fall but I cant' remember the price....I know though that I was pleased with the sale. So glad to see you posting again.

  4. Great finds! Love the shape of the Dansk pitcher.

  5. I love all your's hard to pick a favorite, but that jacket and the Arabia plate are amazing!

  6. Wow, the purple and buttery yellow dresses are gorgeous! Great find with the Arabia plate too!

  7. great dresses - i love the purple one! and the water pitcher is divine.

  8. Welcome back! I have missed your posts. I have one of those Arabia annual plates, but yours is nicer! Robert Maxwell's work is great, ant this piece being an original should be valuable. I found three of his critters early this year and they sold when the right person came looking for them.

  9. Wow! Those dresses are just gorgeous!
