Cambridge fieldtrip

On our blink and you'll miss it visit to Cambridge last week, the design*sponge ladies and myself stopped into a wonky antiques mall. 5 stories of odd and random expensiveness, but I came out with a tiny lab glass beaker, so whatever, it was worth it.


It's heavy but still feels delicate and it's really small, like 2 1/2".


Boston is so funny. It damn near blizzarded, snow, sleet- all kinds of miserable. But I ate a lovely and too short early morning breakfast with Kate, got a ton of divine wallpaper (yes more!), toured two amazing old houses and memorized all the lyrics to every Lady Gaga song there is.

Um yeah, that last bit wasn't my idea. The girls in the front seat controlled the cds and now I've been schooled in what "the kids are listening to these days". That poker face song and the other one about a shorty fire burning on the dance floor. Charming. Absolutely charming.

  1. I love the beaker. I have started adding them to my other items and love the way they look mixed with vintage pieces. Great blog!

  6. Let the record show that Ginnybranch Stelling has the only ipod in the world that contains both Paul Whiteman and Sean Kingston.

    This is an undeniable fact and a large part of why Ginnybranch is able to use the power of positive thinking so successfully!

  10. Sometimes, but only sometimes, Lady Gaga will trump NPR. There are times in a girl's life (even if that girl is 32) when she's just gotta car dance.

    P.S. The beaker is charmng. I believe it merits a creepy little succulent.
