Finds, Finally!

I went to an awesome estate sale today, yes today, as in mid week... I felt a lil crazy going in the middle of the week, but hey, I have the day off and this one actually started today. I just had to take advantage of first come first serve snooping, plus this was a home of a glass collector. I was surprised to see a lot of people at the sale - for being a Thursday morning, but then quickly realized that everyone was trying to get in some shopping before work hahaha. There was soo much glass, soo soo soo much. I silently took bets with myself to see if anyone would break some glass, and yeah, it happened. I just hope they didn't break anything cool.
and now, my finds...

a lil radioactive bowl

some cute googie-ish pyrex

I fell in love with this house a few months back when it was up for sale. It was this picture of the fireplace/wood panel combo that did it for me. When the house sold so quickly, I assumed the buyer really loved the house and its mid-century appeal.

Fast forward to yesterday, Keith links me to a house that came on the market. (we are into looking at new listings for fun) He goes, "this home has nice bones, looks like it can be cool".... so I look at it, and it looks so familiar.... I remind him about that cool house I saw a while back, and notice it's on the same street.
I find the old listing and show it to him. It's the same address! They flipped it! They took down the wood paneling and granite/stainless steel-ized the kitchen. Who do they think they are? oh and they are
asking 305k more than their purchase price back in October. At least they kept the fireplace.

penny slots

It's nice and cold here in Vegas which is very sweet, except every casino thinks they should have their indoor temp set to about 78 - 80 degrees... wtf? Well in other news I saw this awesome video-slot machine game which I had to share. It was the crappiest thing to waste $1 on, but I had to play. I even waited for this older rotund man to finish playing it just so I can have a shot at Kitty Glitter.
