LOOK WHAT I GOT LINK UP


Hello dear readers, I am sitting here with a Kleenex shoved in both my nostrils and breathing through my mouth.  I am sick with one of the worst colds that I have ever had.  I was up half the night and used about 25 tissues while Rob was sleeping next to me with earplugs in.  Seriously.  I am a diehard though, I managed to thrift yesterday and bought some clothing...yep.  I stuck to the vintage rule and picked up some cute pieces.  As soon as I feel better, I will model them for you.   In the meantime, I am linking this to Penniless Socialite and The Tiny Heart for their "Look What I Got" feature. This mid century table caught my eye at a thrift store about 2 weeks ago when I popped in with Kathy's cousin, Diane.   I stopped in my tracks and new that I could incorporate this table into my siting area as I'm trying to bring more of a mid century feel to this room as well. 

The next time we visited the same thrift store, I purchased the table as it was 15% off.  It has it's flaws but the Brady Bunch feel of this little beauty had me going. 

It now houses my stereo that was sitting on the island in the kitchen. 

I also won an auction on ebay I put in a bid on this little star burst clock by Sessions.  It was $15.00 with no bids in the last two hours of the auction so I popped in a bid and waited.  It ended up being $25.00  including shipping.  I hung it low so that I could plug it in behind the credenza.  I've been a decorating fool of late.  I  know that I said I would show you my dining room but I have some new ideas for it which will be happening soon.  I found some great ideas on Pinterest and I am determined to find what I'm looking for in the thrift stores.  Have a great weekend, thank you for dropping in.  Cough, sneeze, sniffle, blow nose, repeat.   Linking up...

I love your decorating style so much. But I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling up to your usual gorgeous self. Next week I'm sure you'll be back on the feel good train.
Love that Brady Bunch side table!

So sorry to hear you've been sick. I had something like that a few weeks ago and it was miserable! So glad you know the important things in life though and managed a thrifting trip! I am forever jealous of your mid century finds. That table is fantastic!

I am in love with your decor. My living room is done with purple accents, but it doesn't look half as awesome as yours! Thanks for linking up!
