So there is this kind of funny place up here in the state of Vermont known as State Surplus where you can find + purchase a number of things from office furniture to pocket knives confiscated at the airport to even surveying equipment if you are so inclined. Apparently at one point in time they had a letterpress for sale and I, for one, am very bummed that I missed out on that. I made my first trip there last weekend and did find some lovelies to take home with me. Mainly for $5 I got this awesome desk chair that was probably made in the 60's. I also found some labels meant for use with a typewriter and I couldn't pass that up!
But for now I am liking it at my sewing desk (so comfy!). You might have noticed that my desk and couch have swapped places. This setup is working a lot better for me and it was good that it made me sort through my stuff (or should I say hoard).
p.s. this photo definitely displays my affinity for organizing things in rainbow order. As a child I would obsessively keep my markers & crayons in rainbow order in their box, and I guess that habit has stuck with me!
