Sunday Morning Exploring

This Sunday morning I was in serious need of a good breakfast burrito and thanks to google we found an awesome place for all of our breakfast needs, Sams No. 3. It was important to establish a reliable breakfast place in our new surroundings so now we can mark that off our To Do list. After polishing off breakfast and a good portion of Saturday night's hangover we decided to go exploring. We found two amazing places in the same shopping area both seeming like they did not belong there. Really it seemed like nothing had flourished there in a while.

First we spotted Hampden Street Antique Market. The second we stepped into the store it was almost overwhelming but such a welcome surprise since we've been developing the taste for hunting for vintage awesomeness. These for example found at the arc thrift store on Mississippi and Sable-It's hard to resist the somewhat hideous, yet rich, colors of the 50's, 60's and 70's... add rust and classic type to it and Hot Damn!! ... even if it is a vacuum cleaner....and back to the original topic, here is one of the gems at the antique store but we just couldn't justify hanging it in our closet even at the reasonable price of fifteen big ones so we left it for some other lucky hunter, maybe someone a little more in need of a gas mask?
And then a few doors down, as well as centuries into the modern era, we found the largest store I have ever been inside of... no not super wal-mart... it was a showroom for Scandinavian Designs. There was so much awesome furniture under one roof that it made me pine for riches, but surprisingly their prices were reasonable so maybe just moderate success will suffice. Here's M test driving one of the living room sets. There's nothing like a shiny cherry-red living room ensemble.
In Other News

when we got home we found that the kitty has finally found the best perching spot for her favorite position, the Beached Whale.

and poor Owsley still has Floppy Ear Syndrome more commonly referred to as an aural hematoma. We've been told if left alone it will go away eventually but leaving "cauliflower ear" in it's wake. Poor pup... but in the interim there is the added bonus of him being even more cute than before, if possible.

Oh my god! Owsley is so cute with his hematoma! It looks like you are having fun in the thrift stores, too. We'll come visit soon...I hope.
