Hammyham and Miscellany

Exciting news! My favorite Hamish has revealed he is working on an auto-biography. So excited!! I'm still waiting impatiently for Grace Coddington's auto-biograpy and Dita Von Teese's beauty book. Come on, ladies! 

Diana, over at exPress-o is hosting a giveaway from Albeit. All you have to do is follow and choose which colors you would like your three bracelets to be! While I was poking around the Albeit site I, of course, found something three times more expensive to fall in love with. 
This gold initial necklace ($310) is so cute! I love how the letter is tilted and there seems to be enough chain to drape it couple times.

Last weekend, I went with a friend (Maria of Urban Cowgirl) to the Better Homes and Gardens charity sale. They publish in my hometown! BHG hosted a once in a lifetime sale of their photo props and furniture to benefit an anti-hunger charity. We got there around 6:45AM, the sale started at 8, and by about 8:30 most of the stuff was gone! It was a bloodbath! There were about 100 people in the line ahead of us and I'm guessing about 300-400 people in line behind us. We were all just grabbing anything! Maria got a really great bench and some cookbooks. I got a Ralph Lauren floor lamp ( I didn't know there was such a thing), two footed bowls, one giant glass bowl, copper ceiling tiles, three big mercury glass style candle holders, one vintage copper mold and three stools for $44! Here is a little teaser photo of our haul:
I'm waiting to share good pictures of all my new stuff until I move into my new apartment! I'm moving, by the way, in 24 days! I didn't expect to move so soon, but something came up at my new office and they wanted me to start a little earlier. Yikes! So much to pack! I also need to squeeze in all my favorite Des Moines things before I go, so look out for those posts!
