Okay, so more like antique of the month. I couldn’t help but get the whole grouping. I mean, they go so well with the terrarium. The Robin’s Egg Blue-eque chair goes perfectly at the work station- accompanied by the matching coffee mug. (Along with the fantastic mahogany side table and the pink ice crusher of course)
We found these little gems at an antique store in Charleston, IL- while I was visiting my dear friend Andy who is attending Grad School at Eastern Illinois. Persimmon Lane is an adorable little antique store located in the downtown, town-square area of Charleston- on 6th street, with an extremely nice owner. So, if you’re ever in the Mattoon area, I definitely recommend checking it out.
I love the way things used to be made, pink, innocent looking and everything. UNTIL- you open it up… Check out those chompers on the inside! Not only does it crush ice, but the metal teeth can easily crush your fingers. None the less, it does an excellent job crushing ice into bits the perfect size for sliding into water bottles.
Gah! Look at that craftsmanship! The furniture designer in me just wanted to hug this table. The way the table comes together is fantastic. And, the legs screw off as well. Like my dad says- they just don’t make things like they used to. With mahogany and love indeed. 🙂
