The last of the winter vacation photos are here.  Just look at all that gorgeous modernist stuff.  Oh, and there's another super cheap teak Danish credenza (tear).  Looking through these makes me want to jump back on that plane and find a way to haul it all over here (including the cider).  Until next year...

3.4 fluid ounces or less

Just because I've nearly given up on the thrift shops, it doesn't mean that there's nothing out there to find. 

Take this American Airlines travel bag, gifted to me by a friend and fellow thrift enthusiast, as an example.

Let the Wookie Win

If you've been in the Mid-Century Modern blog reading/writing game for any amount of time, you've surely heard of The Brick House.  If not, head over and give it a good, long look.  The author, Morgan Satterfield, is one of those design-minded people who can seemingly effortlessly pick out all the best combinations of pieces, creating absolutely gorgeous rooms and vignettes.  It's a real shame that she's gone MIA, as she was a big influence on my own decorating style (though there were many others as well).

One thing that rubbed off was the affinity for Don Freedman-style fiber wall art.  Love it or hate it, she's in possession of quite an impressive collection and I was, for years, stricken with jealously as my own Don Freedman hunt had turned up nary a fiber of the good stuff.
