Music and an Awesome Trip to the Antique Store

March 22, 2011

Music and an Awesome Trip to the Antique Store

Reading and researching your favorite albums has inspired me to keep up on my,
Tuesday: Music Post Day.
Two music posts counts for dedication, right?

In heavy rotation this week:

Left to right, top to bottom:

The Kills: Run Home Slow (Remixes')

White Lies: Ritual.
- This is my favorite album of the year (so far).
The White Lies are three English lads that make melancholy rock.
Think Joy Division, The Smiths, A-Ha, Portishead, The Cure.

Thom Yorke : The Erasure
(Radioheads frontman).

Eurythmics: Greatest Hits.

The Beatles: Abbey Road

Pulp: His and Hers.
Pulp came with the 1990's brit pop movement along with Oasis, Blur, Massive Attack, Katie Moss, Tony Blair, Princess Di's death and Portishead.
I love Jarvis Cocker. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://cache.clean-cut.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/83_JarvisCocker_L281005.jpg&imgrefurl=http://clean-cut.org/tag/different-class/&usg=__u5zoKBf_OnL81KYqOR7UoKrgOSA=&h=184&w=300&sz=94&hl=en&start=0&sig2=sSxdTDXC2viqcuCBl5zNxg&zoom=1&tbnid=6SKVeiL0R1UY-M:&tbnh=103&tbnw=168&ei=JmuJTYL2G4v6sAODwcmYDA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Djarvis%2Bcocker%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us%26rlz%3D1I7ADSA_en%26biw%3D1419%26bih%3D735%26tbm%3Disch%26prmd%3Divnsuolfd&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=933&vpy=147&dur=118&hovh=147&hovw=240&tx=143&ty=88&oei=JmuJTYL2G4v6sAODwcmYDA&page=1&ndsp=35&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0

I went to Sandy Antique Mall today and found a few great things!

I've been looking for a side table for Freya's new bedroom. (Coming soon).

I love the woodwork on this piece.
Attention to detail makes all the difference.
It was also the right colors and $45.

I picked up the knit, baby pink sweater and Charles/Di plate for an additional $3.50.

My favorite score of the day is this mini white bench.
I rarely pass up small benches because you can use them in so many different ways.
(This one was $10).

I haven't been antiquing for several months and I had a super lucky day!
Please share more of your favorite albums.
It was good fun for all!

  1. Aaw, I`ve missed Tuesday Music Day - but because of the different time zones can today count as yesterday?lol
    Loving all your star buys - mindful of that paint if you`re taking it off though, especially the wee bench - may be lead in it.I always think it`s so sad when someone`s beautiful knitted work is thrown into a thrift store. I always imagine how much effort and time and patience they`ve put into making it. Hope none of my stuff ends up there!
    My Tuesday/Wednesday albums are :

    Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
    Careless Love - Madeline Peyroux
    This Train - Ruby Turner
    Eyes Open - Snow Patrol
    Stardust - Willie Nelson

    ps I LOVE Thom Yorke!
