accidental happines ~ stardate: 5:18:2012

so i mentioned doing some thrifting on my birthday in a recent post.  whew!  last weekend was a flurry of activity.  we went to garage sales, thrift stores and flea markets, and i walked away with treasures galore!  a good little bit of activity out in the sun gave me some much needed skin color (though i guess “pasty white” is a common enough color in Michigan) and an outdoor DJ at the flea market made me want to linger even after my treasures were secured.

here is one more of my finds from that weekend, from a thrift store by my sister’s work.  it was love at first sight for me, and doubly so when i sat down in it; it rocks, swivels, and is the perfect size and length to stretch out a bit with a good book.

it’s vinyl and smells vaguely of coconut incense.  which is way better than smelling like an old people’s thrift store, which some of my treasures have started off doing.

i had to give it a thorough cleaning, as it looked like it had  

been abandoned in someone’s attic for some time.  but here it is all shiny and new!
