Okay I don't have a lot to talk about this week. It has been pretty slow here at the I'm So Vintage household, and that set me to wondering. Will I still be posting this at week 1000 and wow, one can only imagine the excitement then.... I will be at least 100 years old by then (a blatant exaggeration) so life should be pretty darned thrilling. There will be tales of me chasing men around the nursing home in my wheelchair, terrorizing nurses, making annoying phone calls to my daughters (oh wait, that last one happens now). Wow, the anticipation is really building up.
We interrupt this amazing fantasy to get back to reality. Ho Hum!!!
I have read some really great books this week. If you love mysteries you will love these. The Elizabeth George is over 700 pages, so be prepared to drink lots of coffee. If you haven't read any of the books by these authors, I would suggest starting with some of the first in their series. They are some great reads. (my own unsolicited opinion)
Now, I know that most of you share your beautiful tablescapes. There are perfectly matched dishes, pretty place mats, and cloth napkins all laid out as a feast for the eyes. Around here, this is the reality of most of my meals. I just reach up in the cupboard and pull down some very not matching dishes. I serve it up and grab a paper napkin. Then I take a photo with the flash on. SIGH!!!
I know how disillusioned you must be feeling at this moment. I'm sure up until this point you thought I was nothing less than perfect, so to make up for it I am going to share this wonderful lentil soup recipe that my daughter was kind enough to text to me.
It was delicious with some gluten free cornbread. Mismatched dishes and all.
The rest of the week has been taken up with the shop. Lots of new finds.
Sister actually made the thrift store rounds with me one day. She had never been in a thrift store, and she went a little crazy. I found her an amazing mid century lamp for her bedroom for $7.75 (sorry she took it away before I could get a photo). I think she has a new obsession.
Before I leave you, I am hoping you can clear up a little mystery for me. Why is it that when I am trying to take a photo with my phone, I have a hard time pushing the button, but it loves to take photos on its own. Thus, I have a lot that look like this.
Hope you noticed I put my I'm So Vintage mark on this. I feel sure there are a lot of people just dying to use it without my permission.
Thanks for sharing my uber exciting week.
