Retro estate sale finds


I found a few things at an estate sale this week. 
I'm really glad a friend of mine invited another friend to go to it with her. Friend #2 told me about it. After which, I invited another friend--let's call her #3--to come with me.
It's good to have friends!

The hand-knit scarf was listed as a shawl. I love a large scarf so it's not too bulky for my giraffe-like neck (seriously, my hubby affectionately calls me a giraffe.Something about my long legs and long neck. They also happen to be my favorite animal so it's all good in my book.)
The light fixture was in the basement of the house. I passed it by initially but went back after being unable to get it out of my mind. 
The bowl is Hawaiian monkey pod wood. Every home needs a pineapple shaped bowl, no? 
And then there's the cute table. Perfect for the living room. See:

Love it.

I also already installed the light in our bedroom. We had a two-bulb fixture in there and it wasn't cutting it. This is much better! 

And all for $15. Yay!
