Comedy and Tragedy

These are very strange little Chinese men...they are curious indeed. Sort of like the comedy and tragedy masks from theater. I love my Opium den living room...now shoooo showww.

Friends...and our "stuff"

Over the last 20 years, my friend and partner in thrifting has been my best friend who now lives at the Lake of the Ozarks. This opens up a whole new world of thrifting. Yesterday, she called and made my day, just by leaving a message on my phone at work saying, "I got you an Oriental picture!" It meant so much more than just a picture (but that's nice, too!) I wonder if any of you have such a friend? Let's write about that.....and post pix of what they have traded, bought etc for you over the years. I ran into another old friend last night at the Thrift store, you know, some people have to wait for a funeral to get back together, so it could be worse! Anyway, He shares in my obsession for vintage and it was fun to look around and oggle things together. I broke down and bought a couple of Oriental statues, and I can't believe they have been there all weekend!
