Happy New Year Sister!
Most of my pictures from Christmas Eve stink because I was so darn sick & busy getting the dinner together so you don't have to look at all the family photo's. Just know that I think it was one of my happiest one's in a long time, because of my wonderful family, and especially the inclusion of my new additions - Anna & Rachael. I adore them!
So, onward to the new year! I haven't got to go picking in so long it's nearly killed me! However.....boy did I hit the jackpot since the new year! Got some of THE most wonderful items & didn't even need to go anywhere to get them! They just fell right into my ever welcome lap! And I couldn't be more excited. First off, my darling Hepcat & the Adorable Mz. Kitty purchased from me, last year, one of my favorite items - EVER. A beautiful 1960's bar cabinet from France. I hated to even sell it but was so happy it went to them. Then the other day he tells me they found a smaller one almost exactly like it that fits much better into the space in their home & would I like to buy it back? WOULD I?!?! Whoopee! And at a VERY generous price! So here it is, back in my space at Folsom. Isn't it GORGEOUS! And causing such a stir at the store already!
I play all my Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin CD's in the space with it. It's just SO Rat Packy!
Then, as if another gift landed in my lap, another gal at the store asked me if I'd like to purchase from her (another ridiculously great price!) an item I'd been drooling over since I first saw it. A gorgeous Hollywood Regency "Gossip Bench". Ohhhh, how lucky can one girl be I ask!
Oh I could definitely sip a nice citrus martini & gossip on this piece for hours!
Now, could it get even BETTER?!?!?! Ohhhh yes it could & it DID! Once again, through my darling Hepcat couple, I was given the opportunity to purchase another MOST adorable Moss lamp. Such an obsession I'm having with these things, and this one, to me, is the "crown" in my collection. A Heidi Schupe (I KNOW I'm misspelling her last name & I must find the proper spelling right away) creation - a beautiful girl figurine & her adorable gray poodle. I grew up with a gray poodle so this is very close to my heart. So I'm sending a HUUUGE "Thank You" to the Hepcat's as well as their friend, the very incredible Frank, for the opportunity to own this item. Finally getting to meet Frank was a joyous pleasure & we must have yakked for an hour. He's quite a guy & a veritable book of knowledge about all things RETRO! THANK YOU Hepcat, Melody and Frank. Ok, get your drool cloth's ready.....
Sure wish these pics were larger!
But here's a close up - Isn't she just sumthin else! And the base of the lamp lights up too!
So, THANK YOU to ALL the Santa's that helped make this THE most wonderful Christmas! Oh yes....I Believe!
And may this New Year bring us ALL the very best of everything.
P.S. If you'd like to see an incredible peek of Frank Sinatra's old home in Palm Springs, hussle on over to Hepcat's and check it out! Wowza! To have been a ROYAL guest in this place would have been the cat's pajamas! Don't miss it!
