I've been on the hunt for furniture and rugs for the new place but haven't had much luck lately. I better get on it, or we're going to move in without a bed, sofa, or dining table, among others. Of course, all is not lost, seems I'm always able to find a little something. I picked up this mortar and pestle while out "poppin tags" with my sister. I loved the pale color and cracks in the bowl. You just can't beat patina.
