Some cute stuff happening in the apartment, yo.
I finally framed my rock poster. I bought the frame for $15 at the thrift (and really, it should have been less but the woman pricing it felt really strongly about the unicorn art poster it contained – p.s. the ’80s were so weird), and then when I disassembled it, the glass cracked down the middle. So I had to buy replacement glass for like another $15 or something. So in the end the total project, with the poster printing and everything, cost around $50. I think that’s pretty rad for a giant, framed art print. Of a rock. I grabbed out of my mother-in-law’s rock garden.
I found these at another thrift the other day. A whole set of six for $8. Again, that was maybe a touch high for a thrift, but it was worth it because …
… I happen to have a matching cocktail pitcher. Which I found a million years ago at the same thrift store. *high five*
You may not be aware, but it is illegal to sell spray paint in Chicago (except for at to-the-trade-only stores). Because of graffiti. LAME. So while I was out visiting my folks in the country, I stopped by the hardware store and bought an armful of cans. Just to have. I already have all of the basics in the house, but I’ve been thinking of painting a few random objects, and all of these colors looked so pretty. Expect to see some melon-colored things very soon.
