Gaaaahhh!!! It's Friday! Anybody Up For A Drive To Vegas? Just Kidding. Ain't Nothin' Out There But Empty Houses These Days Anyway. Anybody Know To What I'm Referencing Anyway? Status: Gonzo...Bloggerism?
I've gotten pretty accustom to keeping and supplying a booth at an antique mall but this is only the third time I've had the "pleasure" of preparing for a one day flea market style outdoor sale. The photo above is of the inside of my brain right about now!
Wait a minute! That's not my brain, that's Ralph Steadman's illustration for Hunter S.
Thompson's Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas! I got this print (? - it's textured...wierd) at
an estate sale last weekend. I loved the book and the movie was trippy. One of Johnny
Depp and / or Benicio Del Toro's best movies!
Also bright red, another patent vinyl red ice bucket! Talk about a POP of color! You know
what else these are good for? Stick a couple of beers in one of these and fill with ice. Beer
Bucket! I bet you could fit 6 longnecks in here top down.
This little cuttie pie came home with me from the Salvation Army a couple weeks ago when
I picked up the Mersman corner table. It's a little rough but it's well built and I can see the
potential in it. The sliding glass doors are nice and thick. I'm thinking that I might line the
inside with this wall paper that I got at a goodwill a few years ago. I picked up the wall
paper thinking I'd find a good use for it some day. Maybe this is it?!
It might be a little while before I get that project going though. I got so much on my proverbial
plate at the moment. Work, Booth, Blog, uhm...everything else! You know it's hard out here
for a Mistah! Not really...it's awesome out here! Just wait 'til ya see what stupid coolness I
picked up tonight after work!
