RECENT SCORES

Thank you all for your nice comments on Mark's office!  You guys are the best!

I went back to the thrift store where I got the black and gold deco lamp hoping that the matching shade was there.  It was!


(Yes! )


Right beside the lamps section, I spotted this upholstered bench...

I couldn't resist.
I'm adding this to one of the many upholstery projects I have yet to do!

and this horse...
a vintage italian Bitossi horse!!
(Mine is not marked, like many of the vintage ones so I emailed a Bitossi collector and he confirmed that mine is a Bitossi!  Score!!)

For those of you who are not familiar with Bitossi, you might recognize their Rimini Blue line by Aldo Londi...



Also, I scored this adorable marble hedgehog pencil holder and acrylic bill holder from a local antique shop...



and this vintage elephant planter...



No offense to Craig but I think I'm loving Will and Vincent more! :)


Have a great weekend everyone!
I am going to the Elkhorn Flea Market on Sunday with Erin!  Come shop with us and follow us on Instagram!  @mybestfriendcraig  @egigliadesign

So many great finds! And I am especially jealous of that upholstered bench...I have been looking for one to reupholster and use as a coffee table for months! If you decide your project list is too long and want to sell it instead, you've got a buyer here :)

Love that horse and the beautiful table lamp (the one beside the hedgehog pencil holder). Great finds!

Have a good weekend!

That is the most beautiful black lamp base and shade I've ever seen. I know why you hesitated, it different and it takes a little reflective time to come up to that. You are the person who can do that. Congratulations on a wonder purchase. Ann
