It's not that my desk was bare. As my reference material, reading and writing projects prove, that's hardly the case. But following a recent purge of excess items to my Etsy shop and to the donation bin, my desk seemed to be all business. After moving a few things around, I decided it needed something new.
It needed something fun, something whimsical. Something like this vintage silhouette Wallace Berrie & Co 1978 frame. I scored this swinging silhouette from Goodwill for $1.97 and knew just where to put it.
And if you're wondering why that name sounds familiar, Wallace Berrie & Co...also known as Russ...also known as Applause... was the manufacturing epicenter for quirky-cute finds of the 70s and 80s. Remember troll dolls? Smurfs? Those wide-eyed "I love you this much" resin statues? We have Wallace Berrie & Co to thank for all that.
What lovely thrift shop additions have you found lately?
