I've done a really good job of avoiding home stuff for the last year. I've bypassed the houseware aisles at the thrift, dashed blindly through living rooms at estate sales, taken pictures but walked on at the antique mall.
That being said, since I have the house on my mind, I've picked up a few things here and there. I always tend to buy in themes once I get going at the thrift store. This week it was a set of vintage glasses with a gold flora & fauna print, which is echoed in a vintage Noritake platter.
I have a problem turning down things that shine, especially when the whole set cost $4.
Vintage platter with a black print that blends seamlessly with my other patterned dishes.
We've dubbed this brass animal the Gazantelope. What is it really?
It isn't old or thrifted, but this West Elm duvet is still very new to the Moodboard household. It may end up in the guest room depending which way we go with the master bedroom.
We thought we were in the home stretch and were supposed to close this past Wednesday, but our seller—who made it abundantly clear he wanted to close ASAP!—didn't turn in all of his paperwork or clean the house out. Fail.
Now we are scheduled to close on Monday, but we're not holding our breath. At least we received notice that they cleaned the house today. We'll see how well they did when we do our final walk through this weekend.
I'm really excited to share plans for the house, but I'm afraid of jinxing things. I also can't wait to get all of our stuff out of storage. It's going to be like Christmas, some things have been packed up for three years!
