I found this really neat book thrifting the other day about chemistry. It has hilarious and cute illustrations about science.
I haven’t been back to work since Wed’s. GUH.
Here’s some Craigslists finds to get us through this gloomy Monday.
I am gonna put myself out there and say I think these guys have potential to make a space look good. Especially if you are going for an eclectic bohemian look.
Holy smokes! Get this to throw in some Girard charm in your life.
Long and low in bootiful condition.
150.00 Cole Valley
The colors and possibilities with these stacking tables are awesome.
Cheap little mosaic table on hairpin legs! YES PLEASE.
Well hello Tiki dreams. HELLO.
Cheap little high boy!
Partly I am amused by this and then also really curious how a huge green hulk hand would look in a room. I dunno guys. I dunno.
Sweet little chair!
I love those little bucket chairs. Could prolly sit nicely in a covered porch.
This piece seems like it would work for someone living in the bay area!
900.00 IN WHO KNOWS WHERE
I skimmed the post and didnt see a location that bit me in the face. Seems like a nice piece for someone with a big living room.
I have the most wonderful news Mimomito! WONDERFUL WONDERFUL.
The folks over at Modern Vienna Bronze will be releasing a limited edition 20 sets of Walter Bosse’s Hedgehog nesting ashtrays!
We did a post about him ages ago! So yeah. Super excite about this news! If you can’t tell by my exclamation points I am really really excited!!!
First get your image to the size you like and print it out on printer paper. Not too small – because it’ll be tough to cut.
I decided to go with 5 inches. Don’t worry if you get it a lil’ pixelated on the print-out – iz just going to be used as a stencil.
Trace the image onto the back of the paper of your choice. Wrapping paper, craft paper, whatever. Just make sure it’s a little bit taller than your tracing (in my case, approximately 7″) and as long as you want your garland to be, around 20-30″ unless your paper is so thick that it would be difficult to cut through.
Finally got a big puffy Christmas tree up in our apartment, and our tall friend Thomas helped up string our lights and put our tree topper on for us. Alan and myself like a tree to really lord over us – showering us in holiday spirit. This year I decided to go through the dubious task of making really quick origami butterflies as ornaments. I like a monochromatic and simplistic tree, myself – not droopy with mismatched ornaments.
Our little apartment feels so cozy, finally. I come home all sad and cold from the dismal outdoors to my warm cave. Alan has been perfecting ham-hocks and beans with a side of collard greens. LET’S HUNKER DOWN, Y’ALL. IT’S OFFICIALLY WINTER.

Spotted this sucker on Craigslist for $50.00 and had to swoop. I had been looking for this exact cabinet style – clean white to go in the kitchen, 1950’s, metal banding, formica top – to replace a a crappy, laminate wood credenza we found in an abandoned warehouse. Not tryin’ to live that shabby chic life, guys. So it had to go.
Also scored this Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group Chair from a garage sale in Natomas for $70.00. A little more than I would have liked to spend, but this is a must-have for someone who loves to troll the internet as hard as I do. (Next to it is a less-comfortable black task chair from 16th Street Salvation Army for $3.00.)
400.00 Oak dale
250.00 San Anselmo
Space agey chairs.
Zenith Circle of sound speakers!!!! omg.
Seller states that it is an actual Burk table BUT does have some little imperfections.
LONG OL’ BENCH!
I know! An insane price. I post this cuz it reminds me of this one time I almost scored one of these sets for a super good steal. At thee last minute the seller backed out because her sister wanted that set. I mean I had to understand…and it also warmed my heart a little BUT DARN! DARN DARN DARN.
