A weekend of shopping...


left me with an armful of goodies from some of my favorite stomping grounds. An old mirror-less frame from a dresser, a two light wall sconce that I'm pretty sure is from Maura Daniels, a lovely ceramic religious plate, a yard or so of vintage trim, a sweet angel statue and an old piano song book.

The trim has detail such as I've never seen before. I have a dining room lamp whose shade would speak volumes embellished with this beautiful trim. It's a small lamp so I'll have plenty left over to decorate some old bottles and various sundries.

I so much loved the way the picture came out of this little cutie that I decided to use it as my blog header.




The song book will be taken apart and used to craft with. I'll certainly get my monies worth out of the 50 cents I paid for it.

The original tag on the sconce was $225 but I managed to get it for $30 because one of the crystals has a chunk taken out of it. No worries, I just loosened a screw, turned the crystal around, tightened it back up and voila no one will be the wiser!
