Acquired Goods

This weekend I was gifted with some fantastic stuff and then I went rifling through the Parents’ house in search of more stuff — lucky Husband huh? 

First and foremost, I want to pay homage to these colorful, hand-embroidered, textiles my mom had stashed in her garage. I’m thinking of framing one to add some much needed color and texture to the dining room.

And then I found this kilim handbag my mom used to carry when she was a teen. Lucky for me, she kept it all these years. I also scored a vintage silk shirt that belonged to my grandma in the 40s.

Things I acquired because I turned another year older…Iranian hand-etched brass swans from my mom, ombre martini glasses from my cousin, a vintage corkscrew, candle snuffer, Alex and Ani eco-friendly “S” bracelet and the most gorgeously photographed cookbook from my brother and his girlfriend. Are you dizzy yet?
