rainy tuesday time lapse gems

i found these saturday night (and then, for some reason, forgot about them until just now). i'm sitting at my desk wishing i was at my house with a pot of tea and some oatmeal... right now it is the opposite of sunny outside.

Vintage radio / stereo furniture console - $50 (Plymouth)

yo, so i watched the jungle book last week, and now when i look at this mirror i imagine it weaving back and forth and singing "trussssst in meeeee" while it hypnotizes me with its eyes somehow. no?
Katherine Henick Mirror - $200 (Sharon)

ivory seatte - $400 (south lawrence)

(side note - spell check, people! really? i should never have to search the words "dressor," "draws," "amour," and "cradenza" in the hopes of finding something to store my clothing in. my current favorite, though, is "shabby chick" - it makes me think of some poor broad on the jersey shore looking particularly down-at-heel.)

Vintage wardrobe - $220 (Plymouth)

French Provinical Wing Chair - $250 (Sharon)

Vintage All Wood Mirrored Armoire 2 Door 5 Drawer 70x41x20 - $300 (Newton)

and finally, a flaaaaashbaaaack. so i've never seen either star wars or star trek, any of the movies or shows therein. (i know. they're on my list.) anyway, you know when you get a word or phrase or bit of a song in your head and it just won't stop? it was previously midnight at the oasis, the song, and now i seem to be plagued by the name "lando calrissian," also known as billy dee williams. (who clearly wrote his own imdb page; "broad smile" indeed.)

i am 98% sure he was on an episode of reading rainbow wayyyyyy back in the day, but cannot verify this; the oracle of youtube is mute on this one. if you remember, and can put me out of my misery, i would be much indebted.

Well, according to the extensive list of guest readers on the Reading Rainbow Wikipedia entry, BDW was not on the show. Hope this brings some relief!
