new acquisitions

On Monday, my SIL (Dacia) and I checked out a new-to-me furniture store, about a half an hour away. They sell new and used pieces and we both did very well. I picked up a vintage rocking chair and I absolutely love it. It was marked $70, but he gave it to me for $45. Hello, Sweet Deals! It’s really pretty, well built, but I was actually really attracted to it because it goes well with a stool I bought at an estate sale earlier this year.

Then today, I got an old G3 iPhone, when a coworker upgraded to a G4. I’m not interested in using it as a phone, but will use it as an iTouch instead. If I can access wireless, than the only difference is I won’t be making calls from it. Already I’ve been having fun downloading apps, like the one that allowed me to take the picture above: “hipstamatic“. Forever I’ve been drooling over all the beautiful pictures my flickr contacts have shared using this app and now I can play with it too!
