Getting the itch...

Cool weather and the deer are out. Can't wait until fall.

Sometimes my education pays off

So now that the weather is cooling back down we are planning on our front garden bed project at the end of the driveway. We need something that shows the house number since you can't see the house from the road and no one can find it.

I decided to design up a Mid Century house number that would look good in Beck's new flower bed.

So what do you think? We are not set on colors yet but I like the design.

The new front door

We made it to Restore South in Buffalo and found our new front door. We have a 1980's country door on the house and wanted to go a bit more retro.

Couldn't pass up this one when we found it between the great glass up top and the two tone brass/chrome doorknob with the atomic starburst handle.

We are planning on having the Amish hang it for us. It's the right size but it needs the hinges moved on the frame as well as the door striker.

Now, what color to paint it!

Thrifting finds

We cleaned out all the thrift shops in Buffalo this weekend and came up with this great stuff.

All of the vases but the tall Chinese one (a gift from our parents) came from the thrift shops. The set of high ball glasses in the tray and the round blue vase were a find in an antique shop on the way home.

The best find was the white Formica end table with it's Danish brass capped legs. It's stamped Jun 12, 1959 on the bottom and it's in great shape.

Here's two more finds

Both came from Restore's. A starburst Welby clock and a Pyrex atomic coffee burner set to go with the new dishes.

New bookcases and desk

We covered most of the NE this weekend picking up this great mid century desk and teak bookcases. Our travels took us to Irondeqouit, NY and Lock Haven, PA.

We picked up a couple of other pieces that we'll put up when we get them arranged.
