My. Fifty. Cent. Find.






VINTAGE Catherine Holm Yellow Lotus bowls. BOWLS!! TWO of them!!

I was at a garage sale last Thursday, several hours after opening. I didn't think I'd find anything, but I was killing time in town so decided to stop and have a looksee. Only a few tables, mostly puzzles, games, clothes, and some knick-knacks. I spied these and wandered over to take a better look. Very good shape. VERY GOOD SHAPE.

Huh.

No price tag.

The seller was talking to someone else, so I patiently waited. And waited. And waited. (seriously, if I'm holding something and obviously want to buy it could you stop talking gossip and wait on me??)

Finally they wrapped up their discussion and I was able to ask her the price. I fully expected to have to write a check for the bowls.

She said, "fifty cents for both of them."

I could NOT get the quarters out of my wallet fast enough.

Fix It Up Friday is back

...and I need help with (gasp) the master bedroom.

You can't tell from the pictures (time for a new camera honey!) but the walls are a very calming and relaxing green. It is important to note that Eric is happy with
everything in the room.

I don't like the way the bed looks after I make it in the morning.

Yes, I am one of those women.

I make the bed every. morning. like. clockwork.

Even in a hotel.

OCD much??

Here are pictures I took a few minutes ago. I had to have the lights on because it is raining. again.

Don't 'cha love the headboard??? It's priceless...





I look at these pictures and I feel that both the bed and the bench need pillows, but I'm at a loss as to size, style, color, texture, etc.

Main colors in the room are off-white-ivory-cream, brown, and green. There is a lot of wood and tile, and a nubby rug (which you can barely see in the pictures).

I'm open to suggestions.

Oh, and here's the end result of the bathroom.....



Why are the colors coming out so yucky on my blog? It's a very beautiful coffee-kahlua-cream kind of color, not this barfy-diaper color.
