My hubby and I recently attended a lovely, out-of-town wedding. Since we were there for the weekend we had some time to spend with each other; and hubby surprised me with the perfect outing – a trip to an architectural salvage yard. It was a wonderful surprise and we had a great time: I even found a few treasures (imagine that).
After spending the morning digging through pieces and remnants of the past, we drove to the wedding with treasures poking out of the trunk, tied down with twine, and filling the back seat of my car. We got a few stares, laughs and Beverly Hillbilly comments, but of course no one who knew us was surprised.
A rusty metal candle sconce. I think this will work great in my garden.
I’ve needed a large paper roll dispenser at the studio for some time; now I have one.
I love, love, love this old mirror; it has the most wonderful patina.
Here is a detail of the beautiful patina; see why I love it.
And finally the most exciting find of all, an old (rotting), wooden cart on wheels; well it’s not quit on wheels yet, but it will be once restored and then it will make a great coffee table in the cabin: So excited.
