Due to blogger's ass-backwards way of uploading photos, this post is going to be a mess of out-of order pictures, but it's not my fault!
Here's a reminder that Vientiane is a delicious, cheap place to get takeout for a cozy dinner at home!Those who are on the Poinsettia list knew about this bonkers estate sale at one of the grand mansions on V btwn 21st and 22nd. I took some so-so pictures. Does anyone have a flickr set that's better? This is one of the grand homes of Sac, up on Poverty Ridge, and it is crumbling into disrepair. It was creepy, it was depressing to paw through the lady's stuff, it was jaw dropping. Here's the back of the house.
The backyard with the carriage house on the left. That's a boiler part.
Now we jump to the awesome show friday at West Capitol Bowl. Thee Makeout Party were so fucking great! Photobooth was, too, but I didn't get any good pictures of them.
The Box Elders: also great. Lots of eye candy for the ladies.
See what I mean?
Now, interior of the house. Look at that crazy lampshade! How old is that, Ella?
The backyard of the house.
I got a romertopf cookbook at the estate sale.
And then the next day, at the antique sale under the freeway, I got a romertopf. Haven't used it yet. I'm skeptical about all the claims the cookbook makes, but we'll see. It feels really fragile and I predict I will break it and burn myself.
Here's a stylish lady in the cookbook, cleaning her romertopf. Hey-oh!
That "ask me to ask you" button from ye olde antique faire was really making me laugh. I should have bought it!
