My third purchase was this "Hoova". Yes, it's a Hoover but I have to say it like the British as, "I'm doing my hoovaing.". It's round, old, chippy, beautiful blue, yada, yada...it spoke to me.It loves living on top of the faux t.v. and I love it too. I brought home a couple of other prizes that I'll share. The coup de gras is being shipped; I'll share all when they get here. Most of all what I brought home from Round Top was endless inspiration which I've been using on the house this week. Oh boy!
This was my second purchase-I mean-come on! You know I do the 3-D collage art using just these kinds of figurines in my shadow boxes. Well this one is mine, all mine I tell you, mine I say! And is he too perfect on top of the Hoova? It's the first scuba diver figure they ever made, or so the woman told me. I can make up different stories about how they go together...it's perfectly normal and people do this all the time-really-I read it online. But seriously, he can be an alien and that's his space ship or he's a diver and that's the ocean that he can dive into-see, completely normal.
The pink lace tablecloth attached itself to my wallet. I knew it would be just another way for me to further infuse pink into the dining room just as I'm letting more and more pink creep into the house so the boys might not notice it so much. This did not come from Round Top, it came from...umm...my new secret place near home (the home that I physically live in). I love how it's Majolica-like and all the colors and I don't make up stories about it.
