Hi Everyone! I wanted to share some highlights from this past weekend… It was one of those rare weekends where there was more play than work, more pure fun than scheduled commitments, and more creative inspiration than go-go-go. The weekend began with a book signing by one of my childhood idols and ended at a small-town Goodwill, where I found the newest member of my ’80s ceramic swan collection, pictured above!
Goodwill Find: An ’80s Deco Vase
Those who know me well are aware of my addiction to ’80s Deco vases. It’s an obsession that started a few years ago when I saw a red plastic floral vase at an antique mall, and it reminded me of the plethora of curvy ’80s ceramics that graced many a table and shelf top during my favorite decade. When I couldn’t find the vases at any thrift shops in the area, I headed to Goodwill, also known as the mother ship. At any given point in time, there will be at least one ’80s Deco vase and several ’80s Deco lamps on the shelves of the local Goodwill, often in shades of peach, blue, mauve and white. My latest purchase–a blue glass piece–can be seen above!
