I have been sick all week. I vaguely remember going to work Monday then most of it is a blank. Unfortunately on top of a bad flu I developed a bacterial infection of my sinuses. Fun. Let's just say that antibiotics have kicked in and I feel just a tiny bit better. Thrifting has been on the back burner as my only journeys have been to and from my bed to the bathroom and once to the doctor's. Still I have a few treasures to share. Anita from Fun and VJs posted about Timo Sarpaneva's Festivo candlesticks last Tuesday and look what I found on Thursday after I visited the doctor ...
I think my favourite part of the doctor's visit was the thrift store next door and yes, I do choose my medical practitioners by their proximity to good thrift stores :) Keeping with the Finnish theme I found these cute little Arabia blue Anemone demitasse cups and saucers the week before just around the corner from work and yes, I do choose my workplace based on its proximity to good thrift stores :) The beauty of these little babies was the price - $4 for the pair while ugly bad ass coffee cups with no pedigree were going for so much more. This is the same thrift store were I found this Arabia beauty.
I'm finishing off my Finnish thrifting with this teeny, weeny Arabia vase. Truth be told I found this one a couple of months ago at, you guessed it, the Arabia shop thrift store around the corner from work. It was in the ten pieces for $1 throw out bin. For 10 cents! At least someone loves you now little vase.
If you'll excuse me now I'm off back to bed but before I go I was wondering if Anita would do a post on Ligne Roset's TOGO sofa. I need one to pop up in a thrift store near me!
