And speaking of winners, I think its about time we had a giveaway round these parts. I have something in mind for true old house lovers but I'm not sure how many of you readers are in the midst of home renovations that would make this prize worth winning. Would you mind responding in the comments about what brings you to my blog: are you about to or in the middle of a renovation? are you more of a home decorator? or are you just here to read along with my rantings? here for some other reason (pls explain)?
A few people asked where I found the nighstand. Where else but my favorite haunt - Englishtown Used Furniture & Antiques. I'm pretty certain Mr. Limestone curses the day I stumbled upon this place as I now make him take me there at least once a month. As I've mentioned, its completely disorganized and filled to the brim with old crap - so you have to really dig and even then its hit or miss. But I definitely love this place.
Want to see what else I snagged?
This little ceramic bust marked at $3 but the owner brought it down to $1 because there is a crack at the back of the head.
And this etched silver plated tray for $2.50. Again, I had to search through a mountain of crap to find this one but for $2.50, can't really complain.
Should you happen to visit there one day and find a raggedity looking woman with a glazed look in her eyes scanning the piles, that's me!
