This weekend was much tamer than last weekend. Last weekend Jon was in the ER and getting an open appendectomy so this week Jon continued to recover and we spent a low key weekend at home. We had two beautiful fall days this weekend in NY so even though Jon was recovering we managed to get out of the house for a couple of little trips to enjoy the weekend.
We started off our weekend having lunch at Benihana, because we thought Hudson would have a kick seeing the chef cook everything in front of us.
He wasn’t amused:
We also went to park and enjoy some time on the slide:
I’ve also been toying with being becoming a vendor on One Kings Lane Vintage & Market finds so I hit my favorite thrift store to see if they had any goodies.
I found lots of campaign style furniture:
Only issue was that they were all formica. Now I know some bloggers have painted over formica in the past and insist that it comes out great, but that has never been my experience with it so I ended up leaving them. Even though I actually think they are in great original shape so perhaps someone would love them as well? What do you think?
Fell head over heels in love with this mid century modern piece by John Stuart:
It had a little damage so I also left it behind:
I’m actually now regretting leaving it behind. I think I will actually head out later on today and see if it’s still around so I can snag it!
Also loved this piece:
I’m actually now having thrifting remorse that I spied all of these cool items, but didn’t pick up any of them. At the time Hudson had fallen asleep in the car so Jon stayed in the car with him and I ran in alone and just couldn’t pull the trigger on anything without having someone else to see the pieces and give me the okay that I wasn’t nuts in seeing their potential.
Have you ever had that happen to you?
