Morganton side table (Status: Bubba approved)

I bought this side table about 3 months ago at a thrift store on the West side of town.  The first time I saw it I fell for it, HARD, but it was $80!  I kept visiting it every week or so and watched the price drop until it finally hit a suitably low price that my almost unemployed wallet could afford.

New bonus Cathay covered dish find yesterday (Status: Bubba not around to approve)

Ever since last Thursday, when I found the 19 pieces of Cathay, I have felt like I needed to go back to that Volunteers of America; yesterday I did and it paid off!

Blending the old with... Okay, they are all old blenders (Status: smoothies anyone?)

I don't really know how I ended up with a collection of blenders, it's certainly not that I set out to collect them.  I really dig the control panels (ohhhhh, look at all the buttons) and there is all of the chrome (mmmmm, shiny), plus they are pretty cheap- I didn't pay more than $10 for any of these.

Pickin's are slim but I've managed to find a few fish in the sea (Status: Peckin' & Pawin')

Sorry for the paucity of postings lately; work has been taking up a lot of time plus I have to shuttle my dad back and forth from my hometown to Columbus for OSU football games and the weather has been lousy for taking sun dappled pics of my pickin's (rain).  This is actually about TWO WEEKS worth of mid mod goodness (I estimate 30 to 40 trips to the thrifts and fleas- A LOT of sad, empty, fishing nets).
