One of my favorite internet past-times is cruising Craigslist for an awesome home decor deal. It's sort of like Virtual thrifting. Etsy is the equivalent of going to a vintage store or a real antique store and Craigslist Seattle is like going to Goodwill in Ballard. You never know what you're going to find and often times you overlook something because it isn't on display in a way that makes you say "yeah I could see that in my home!" Which brings me to a plethora of pictures of things on Craigslist that have recently caught my eye and I wish I could purchase.
I apologize for the poor photo quality and small size, that's just how things are in the world of Craigslist.
I love this glass-top desk. The glass really makes it stand out, I would be awesome to do a monochromatic display under it against the dark wood.
How amazing is this lamp? It is basically a bell jar filled with butterflies that you can put a lamp shade on. For $77 this is a total steal. Unfortunately I don't have a place for it and I don't have $77 to be spending on things I have no place for. Bell jars are all the rage in decor these days, though!
A hot plate food cart! I don't know why this caught my eye as it's not really my style. I guess I just really loved the Plexiglas cover. The ad said it would probably make for a great bar cart which could be cool, otherwise it would probably sit in a closet for most of its life.
I'm into lamps these days. Especially those with crystal bases. This would look really awesome with a lemon-colored lampshade to top it off.
A coffee percolator that works! This looks so neat! I love chrome kitchenware and I love it's bulbous qualities.
I'm really into weird dishes. Got to love these plates with vintage ski trip photos emblazoned across them. I'm not sure if these are actually vintage but they're cool regardless.
This wrought iron bed frame is stunning. It would be awesome in a guest room but it would be a shame to not see it very often.
It probably will be awhile before I live in a place that I can decorate exactly as I see fit and where I can justify buying things like vintage crystal lamps but until then I will continue to save all my inspiration in my "Interior Decorating" file meticulously labeled with key words.
Happy almost-Valentines day, everyone! Bake some cupcakes for your neighbors.
