A minimal moment

I have been trying very, very hard to not buy anything I don't need these days. Let's just say I'm going through a minimal moment.

Shock. Awe. Horror. I never thought it would happen to me.

However, it didn't stop me from buying this amazing oldie fruit still life, my first ever vintage etsy purchase (and hopefully last till I can control the wild amounts of things I already own). Let's face it, people. I have a hard row to hoe.

That being said, I have a weak spot for antique fruit things. My uncle Jim owns an orchard and I think it has something to do with spending so many girlhood days swinging under an apple tree.

Next up, I'm dying to buy this Victorian stone peach, but I need to clear a space for it first!

  2. I told you about the peach in John Derian, I thought if you wanted it you'd search for it!

  3. I am in the same boat these days. Trying very hard not to spend any unnecessary funds. Which of course was the exact moment I started discovering vintage goodies on Etsy. Saw something on Friday that I have been trying to convince myself not to buy for two days now. Still haven't but my resolve is weak.

    And another case in point: just saw the old copy of Wuthering Heights in your shop, one of my all-time favorite books if not THE all-time favorite book (depends on the day and the mood). Why must you tempt me?? Sigh.

  5. The painting is lovely and the peach is so cool! Not a big fan of most fruits but peaches I looooove.

    Hey, I came across a funny little vintage item at the thrift store the other day that I thought you might get a kick out of. I'd love to send it to you in return for that sweet post card you sent. Just email me where to mail it to at thriftcandy@yahoo.com :)
