Last weekend was a nice sale at a church that, of course, we were about fifth in line for. I bought a couple lamps right off the bat before anyone else probably had a chance to see them (don’t worry, they have shades this time!) and went looking around for anything else I could find. There were a few noteworthy items I snatched up.
This pot is adorable and reminds me of Jupiter. It’s a Dryden Original from Hot Springs, Arkansas. The company is known for it’s vibrant glazes which is evident in this little piece. I’m not sure what I’ll plant in it, if anything.
This was one of my more exciting finds. Did anyone else use to play with one of these? The Soma cube! My husband’s grandma had one and my grandma had one. So between the two of us, we’re quite familiar with it.
I remember sitting for hours trying to figure out these advanced figures. There’s a section in the book where you need two Soma cubes to complete the designs. I’ll have to try and find another one sometime.
Sitting all folded up on top of a box was this beautiful tapestry. I passed it by once and went back to get it the second time. This piece is vibrant. It’s designed by Tibor Reich to commemorate the 400th birthday of William Shakespeare. That makes it easy to date it at 1964. It’s called Age of Kings.
Here’s a detailed shot. Sorry, my iron is…well, I’m lazy. I’m not really sure what to do with this, if it would go on a table for my cats to take naps on and get filthy, or if I should get it framed. What would you do?
