We are off to New York City and also Bend, Oregon for a couple of weeks (it has been almost a year since I’ve been back in the United-States!) but I will leave you with a quick post and show off some of my new finds.
Getting ready for NEW YORK CITY!
As you know, my baby and I have been going on shopping sprees to our hearts delight. We recently found several incredible flea market/thrift stores which are full of exotic, interesting and vintage treasures. I bought two area rugs. These are Persian rugs–I was told that one of them is hand-made. One of them cost 150 euro and the other one was only 40 euro! Unbelievable! After living in Africa, I’m fairly adept at haggling for a good price.
Check these lovelies out! The red rug looked AWFUL at the thrift store. It was embedded with crud and slime. I had it professionally cleaned and now it looks presentable–a little worn, but still quite striking for the right space. I’m quite proud of my finds.
Also, I found an old in-table at the same store (very cheap) and I spray painted it blue–just for fun. (Yes, my husband and I have awesome taste when it comes to non-fiction books).
