Megan is playing my 1957 Harmony
H162 - she's not actually playing here, she's tuning it. I scored that guitar for $40 a few weeks ago. It's my best sounding guitar.
Behind her is a dresser from the 1940's that I snagged for $25 five years ago. You'll be seeing lots of it in the next weeks weeks because I really like the color.
This bookshelf is from Ikea. There's a couple of funny things here. First, all of those books are double stacked - there's a whole other row of books behind what you see. Second, this was a display model when I bought it. It was half price, but the catch was that I had to take it as-is with no delivery. So, my boyfriend and I brought his truck down to load it up. We measured the truck and checked it against the dimensions listed on the Ikea website -WRONG!! The shelf was a half inch bigger than the site said. When we attempted to take it apart to load it, I undid one screw and the thing fell into 50 pieces. So yeah, we like to read a lot over here.
Right next to Megan's head is a copy of The Little Prince. It's my favorite book ever. This copy is in Spanish and I got it from the largest, most prestigious bookstore in Argentina.
I live in a typical Florida house. Those of you who watch Dexter know what that is. Rachel is standing in what we call a "Florida room." I made the dress from scratch and the look and fit are spot on vintage 1950's. I'll have them up on etsy is sizes S, M, and L.
The super cute animal paintings came from Berkley Illustration on etsy.
The hardcover copy of The Little Prince is from the mid-50's and it's a first edition in English.
I hope these pics and stories inspire you to go out and find something cool for your place. As you can see, sometimes you don't really need a lot of money to make things look cool. Let me know what you find.
