Alabaster and Cement

Isn't she pretty?




I found her this weekend at an estate sale. She's an alabaster lamp. Hard to find at a reasonable price, and she was more than reasonable.  My husband brought home the alabaster urn on the right a few days ago from a resale shop.





This chair was at the same estate sale.



Along with these "Made In Italy" nesting tables, a pair of ornate shelves, and cement planters. If you read my "What I Like" post, you know how much I love urns and planters.









There's more, but I haven't taken photos yet.  Although this was an estate sale, the prices were great, and falling the first day.  The cement planters  were less that $10 each.   I'll be sure to share the rest of my finds in future posts.
