Vintage Pennants

All of these...
...came from this box.  So fun!
Someone local collected an amazing assortment of pennants from the 60's.  So cool!
The group near the bottom are from Canada, mostly British Columbia, some Alberta.


These are from the U.K...
Great assortment from the Northwest...

Fantastic Lloyd Center Mall postcard included in the middle pennant
Love the OMSI pennant!


And a few more from around the country...
I adore the original red felt Disneyland pennant with raised white felt letters. :)

I love the nostalgia of all of them as a collection, but if you're interested in any in particular (or the whole lot) get in touch and make me an offer!

A.H. Andrews & Co Antique School Desk

Going to do something a bit out of character and offer this amazing 1880's A.H. Andrews & Co. antique school desk for sale unpainted based on the history found here.

Andrews (A. H.) & Co.

This furniture company was founded in 1865 by Alfred H. Andrews, a Connecticut native who moved to Chicago in 1857. By the end of the 1860s, Andrews employed about 70 men, who made about $150,000 worth of furniture each year. By the beginning of the 1880s, A. H. Andrews & Co. had become the largest firm in the city's robust furniture industry, employing about 500 people and manufacturing about $600,000 worth of school and office furniture each year. During the 1880s, the company opened branches in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston. Andrews & Co. started to produce metal furniture in the early 1890s, but it entered bankruptcy and went into decline soon thereafter.

Price: $110

This Week at Studio 12:01...4/16/13

 Fun discoveries and some great antique pieces for sale!
(Click on 'Read More' below for the entire post)

Dad had been in San Diego for work all week and I had been home with a little one with the flu.  No fun!  When he finally returned I told him Saturday would be 'Mom Day' and I escaped to Seattle to Pacific Galleries (more on that later).  When I returned he took off to a Mariner game so I took the kiddos to a small nearby town and hit a couple antique shops.  Found the desk above (for sale, pick your color!) and the shoes below (NFS!).  :)

Garage Workshop Surprise

This little lovely surprise cupboard was in some old man's garage workshop at one point...I'm guessing it had been there since the 1940's. I cleared away the dead bugs and cobwebs and LOVE how it turned out.

Funny how some colors just make a piece perfect. So many options with this a hallway, bathroom storage (towels and toiletries), in a kitchen for extra storage, a hideaway for toys and books, etc. $79~

Almost done!

Been working nonstop (okay, every few days or so) on Ann's secretary cabinet in her dining room -- the glass is curved and the detail work has been crazy.  She plans to paint the wall behind it Benjamin Moore's 'Waynesboro Taupe' after seeing it in my of the best warm taupe colors I've found!  Anyway, this white cabinet will pop beautifully with the contrast.  Can't wait for the finished product...ready to wax, then voila!

This Week at Studio 12:01 Design (3/15/13)...

I just had this stupdenous idea that in order to keep the blog updated I'm going to have to have an entry here and there based on a 'This Week' idea....the individual piece posts are more than I have time for right now. 

So on that note...

This Week at Studio 12:01 I've continued working on different pieces at my friend Ann's house as well as doing color consulting (so fun!).  She basically has me on retainer for a house full of projects so I head over to her place whenever I have time.  These are a couple pieces I've recently done for her.  The first is almost finished...

...and the second had a lovely note from Annie Sloan herself on the facebook post:

"Annie Sloan I love this ! Great piece of furniture and great colour combo."

WOW! Best compliment ever! :)

And for something from a different vein, so to speak, I contracted this week with a local store in the Tacoma/Seattle area, Kristi's Country Store, to do some consignment.  Excited to see where things go with it!

Shari's Table Redo

This post doesn't have an interesting title because I'm laid up in my bed with pneumonia and not feeling all that creative. There's some brutal honesty. :)
