We did a smattering of vintage-themed activities, including a mid-century modern furniture store, a vintage clothing shop, and a meandering walk around a historical neighborhood.
I started playing my favorite game in the furniture store: Where Would I Put This If We Had A House? This sweet orange love seat would be great in a foyer, or in my forthcoming giant workspace. Neither of which exist right now. And that's too bad, because it was only $195.
Some fun dishware, and they appeared to have the entire set:
I've never seen a TV like this before! I couldn't get a good picture because of other furniture in front of it, but it was sitting on cool spindly legs. Kind of like a giant spider, but not terrifying.
My sister and I (plus Mom!) took a turn around the historic North Side of town. That imaginary future house of mine has a wrought iron fence like this one:
I love everything about this one: the windows, the pergola, the brick siding, the bits of green near the roof...
Amidst the homes of yore was a distinctively modern design. I like it! I'd be curious to see how they finished the inside.
And finally, there was THIS situation at the vintage clothing store. Note how it gives me that attractive bobble head look:
And wouldn't ya know, it was one of the few things that came close to fitting me. My sister had better luck and bought a dress that would belong in Joan's closet on Mad Men. Very fabulous.
So how was your weekend? Anybody else take a little trip? Or find some awesomely bad vintage clothes? Or a couch you don't have room for?
