That's the name of the antique shop I finally made it to a couple of weeks ago: Lost Marbles. I really liked it and even better -- it's only about four blocks from our house. They have three+ levels of nicely organized items including vintage clothing, sewing supplies, a mid-century room and more! I need to go back again, a second visit is always easier for me because the first visit to a new antique or thrift store is always a bit overwhelming. But I did manage to pick up this vintage framed paper cut of a cricket. I don't know if it is a machine or hand made piece (I'm leaning toward the former) but I like it and it was a good deal. And therefore a done deal.
I tried to catch the yellow leaves before they're gone. As much as I love living in a Winter wonderland, I'm no where near ready for Fall to end. It has been a beautiful season this year. So much color, so many long warm days and crisp cool nights.
Another lovely thing that happened this Fall: the mod spoons fabric I got from A Little Hut's etsy shop. Thank you Patricia! I love it and am trying it out as well as testing the Orla fabric I picked up last Summer on my travels. The fabrics are just wrapped around the pillows to give me an idea of how they'd look. I only have one meter of that pear print oilcloth (why-oh-why didn't I buy more) so I'm carefully considering how best to use it.
Here's a view of the living room and sunroom, looking from the dining room through the living room. It's sort of the opposite view from what I've shown before. Sigh. We have so many boxes that are full and in need of unpacking. So it should come as no surprise that I spend 99% of my time these days in the rooms that are less, how shall I put this? The rooms that are less needy. See it bigger here.
