For the love of print!

So on my quest for gorgeous stationery and paper goods for the last post, I came across many a lovely poster & print. Inside I was like, "Arrgh, typography? Posters? Stationery? PICK ONE!" So, to make everybody happy (okay okay, mostly myself - but you'll be happy too I think) I bookmarked all my favorite posters and prints I came across and decided to share their deliciousness with you - and yes, I do believe a poster can be delicious ^_^ So on that note, bon appetit! 


In other news...what an amaaaazing day I had yesterday. Andy, Cheyenne and I went downtown to the historical district for some antique shopping and boy oh boy did we hit the jackpot! We were driving down one of those parallel parking only type streets trying to find a good place to park next to a good store - anything we could find - when I saw two of my favorite words: CLOSING SALE, to which my immediate reaction was "Oh! Oh! Let's go there! Over there!" So two u-turns and one whoops-we-made-a-wrong-turn detour later, we were inside the shop asking prices and piling stuff in a box. I spent 40 dollars and got a TON of treasures. I got a whole set of beautiful vintage dishes for three bucks. Let me say that again, THREE BUCKS! A lot of things were 5 and under and I think the most expensive thing I bought was a really pretty and interesting yellow floral bread box for $15. It was like Christmas (almost in July) :) 

What about you? Do you have a favorite find that you got for a steal of a deal? If so, tell me about it! There's something that feels so great about sharing the thrill of your bargain treasure, isn't there? Anyway, I hope you all are having a fantastic day :) And thank you for all the love you have been sending! It's really great to get some positive reenforcement :D
