Etsy Love :: Pretty Pink Rooster Vase

My roses are blooming and I just don't have enough vases to put them in!

Today I stumbled on this one by seller onevintagelife

Something about it made me happy…I can't wait to get it and I scored it for $7! And even though I am super broke, I decided to secretly buy it. Shhhh…don't tell my hub!

I love the laziness of thrifting on Etsy…especially when it's swine flu season* and going out shopping is low on my list.

*please know I am not serious.

Etsy Love :: Vintage Soap Dish

I am enjoying etsy so much more now that I'm not selling there….lol.

Another thing on my wishlist right now is soap dishes. I want one for my bathroom and one for my kitchen too. I just bought this one today on Etsy!

Purchased for $5 from etsy seller debz08. Looks like she has a bunch of other cute vintage stuff.

One down, one to go…

Can't wait to get it!

Etsy Love :: Vintage Phones

My new "hunt for" item is for my kitchen. I have a 50's house with an old school wall-mount for a phone. I have a crappy $5 phone there now and it haunts me with it ugliness and general lack of cuteness. Since we moved in, I have imagine a vintage wall-mount phone there.

On a recent trip to Universal Studios, I got to see the property room aka "The Prop Room"! I saw a shelf of every imaginable phone color. I always thought I wanted black, but now I want turquoise or yellow or ORANGE.

I am hunting on Etsy all the time to see if I can find one…I saw one today:

Don't you love it? It's yellow and adorable, but I don't know if it's a wall-mount or not. I contacted the seller to see.

The hunt continues…
