Even with the busyness of readying for the Fall Market at the shop, I still
managed to find time last weekend to do a little hunting...
Treasure hunting that is!
Here's a little grouping of some of my finds. These were captured (but none were harmed) from several sources including (but not limited to) yard sales, local antique shops, and of course, right from the WCS where I rent space.
Always happy to support my fellow dealers... :) Anywho...I'll show you close ups
First...I've been so excited to share this. See that pic below...the lovely bottle from The Beautiful Life?
Well, I've been coveting that for a couple weeks now from their website. I'm really loving the French Nordic look lately. I think the price is around $26.00 and not a bad deal.
But...I was holding off, trying to behave (financially speaking)...ahem...cough cough
And then...look what I spied at a yard sale... and for only $3.00
A French Vinegar bottle which appears to be aged and still full of the vinegar to boot!
Here's the paper tag still on the back that reads product of France. I just love when the sweet Lord rewards me with something so wonderful, and for much less than the original thing I wanted. I imagine it makes Him smile when we wait on Him.
This heavy iron chandelier was also found at a yard sale. I LOVE the frenchness (is that a word?) of this, don't you?
Little Big Ben is actually a good size and I purchased this from Mary Ellen at the shop. I was drawn to the aged patina around the edges, giving it an almost zinc- like appeal.
I also found these old covered jars for $3.00 each (at the same yard sale as the French Vinegar bottle) I think I may embellish them with some black numbers.
Here's that cross that I promised you a pic of in an earlier post. Isn't this fabulous? Rusty and crusty in all the right places. My biggest problem will be deciding which room gets to have it.
Picked up this vintage industrial look desk lamp at a local antiques shop for $14.99. I was thrilled since I saw another like it in the same store for over $30.00. My lucky day!!
Another yard sale find...an old iron creamer. Painted white...shabby and rusty with drippy paint. Be still my heart! This set me back $10.00 but I couldn't resist it's French Farmhouse look.
Lastly, I just wanted to show you a sign I painted for my space at the shop. My fellow shop girl Maureen suggested I put the little vintage clock faces on the side....
since after all... I am A Shabby Moment in "TIME"
Well, I hope all your hunts are successful, finding that perfect treasure to "mount" on your wall!
