A few years ago my sister Melissa and I were shopping Tulsa garage sales and came across an over stuffed chair named Plum. She’s purple and even though I know we weren’t looking for chairs on this adventure, I couldn’t walk away without her. She’s settled in nicely to two apartments in two states since then. Recently, in my January frenzy to get organized, declutter, and make way for a more focused year, I rearranged all the furniture in my living room and noticed Plum could really use a small ottoman friend. And yesterday, I found one! I waited very impatiently for 4pm, so I could trade my office for this great vintage shop in the Crossroads called Thistle. It’s a new “vintage studio” in KC open the first Friday weekend of the month (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) and it’s full of vintage home goods, which deserve a chance to share your life. There, around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, I spotted Henry. A mid century leather hassock looking for a friend. So, I brought him home and introduced him to Plum. I’m sure happily ever after is in their future!
