the hunt

The joy of shopping at thrift stores was driven home to me this weekend. Look at the loot I brought home!
Polaroid camera $4 (not sure if it works yet)
Globe $10
Vintage paintings in charming frames $3 each
Electric typewriter $10 (I think it works although I haven't tested it) (post edit: it works! all except the d key but I think d is an unnecessary member of the alphabet)
Glass bottle $6 
With a trip to Lowe's and a little epoxy glue the bottle became this:
Here's my new desktop that I'm absolutely in love with:
Seriously, how do people part with this stuff? The lady ringing me up told me to "enjoy my treasures." Done.

People part with it because when they look at it they see junk, whereas you see a masterpiece! I'm impressed with what you did =D

Love the desk, and I love your style!! I think that I have some Polaroid film. My grandparents used to have some I think I saw it when I was living there. I will have my mom check her house.

Wow. Just wow.

You have blown my efforts out of the water.

And that's okay.

Wowsers.

The camera is my favourite! Did you figure out if it works yet?
