Tuesday Find-Blanc de Chine


While dashing to my hair appointment in Old Town this afternoon, I spied her in the window of my favorite thrift store. I had to run in, worrying that she might be gone when I returned. Eight dollars later, she was safely tucked away in my purse while I got my hair done. She seems quite happy in her new Chinoiserie home, don't you think?

I just found her sister at a local consignment shop last week! She was $6 and looks lovely on my dresser. There were actually two of them and a friend bought the other. (I know not to go shopping with her now!)
