Bullet Planters and New Finds.

I've obsessed about bullet planters long enough. I finally broke down and purchased a pair on Ebay.  All I really wanted was the short one but I got a great deal on 2 so I couldn't pass up the pair.

The short tan one has found it's home here in my living room. I'm not sure where the taller black bullet will go but I'm sure I can find a space.  

These are so hard to come by now that I don't think I can part with the black one.  I'd regret it later.  In my years of picking I've never seen one at a sale.  Where are they hiding? 

So, now my old planter is for sale in my shop.  I hate to see it go but go it must!

And check out some of my new finds:

Totally Atomic. Tile-top Boomerang Coffee Table.

Now that is a boomerang! Check out the angle on this baby and the gorgeous tile detail. I've never seen anything like it.

Rescued from a Hollywood Hills estate, this beauty is looking for it's new home to hang out for the next 50+ years.

Email me if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with the owner.  He's asking only $300 - makes me wish I had space for this in my home.

The Space Age. Mid Century Architecture and Design.

I love what came out of the "Space Age". From the architecture, to home decor, fashion and more, it was the coolest time.   Will we ever see a more interesting take on design? I think not.

Here are some of my favorite Googie designs:
