A Few Finds

To say that I've been busy these past few days is an understatement. I have so much to share, it's been hard to decide what to post first. So, I'm just going to start with a few of my finds from this past week. This vintage, hand painted velvet frame, is one of my favorites.

Made in Italy.

Seven books from the 1800's,

with well over a hundred beautiful images.  All seven books were $12.

This beaded heart is dated "1908". $1 at a garage sale.

and it's lying on ledger pages from this vintage cash book.

I have lots of ideas for these.

This tool box is made of steel, and could be used for so many different things. I love it.

Yesterday, I picked up THREE chandeliers. Almost done with one of them. I have furniture redesigns near completion, including a pair of marble top tables. There are tutorials I'm working on, more finds to share, an upcoming show, and several SURPRISES. See ya soon.
