My Weekend Finds

Hello again from The French Hen's Nest

On the weekends, and during the week I go looking for that piece, you know, something a little special that needs some TLC.   Probably many of us look for the same thing, but this past weekend, it just wasn't meant to be for me.  However, I did find a few interesting things, and I'm going to share them with you.

First find, this white wooden bowl with carvings on the outside.  I think my lemons look good in it, and my shells as well, and for Christmas, probably some Red Delicious Apples.  I found this bowl at the Hospice Thrift Store a couple of weekends ago.

Aren't seashells beautiful?

My second find, probably my favorite, are these beautiful wooden pediments to hang over a doorway, or attach to a mirror, or other piece of furniture.  One is going over a doorway for sure, the other, ??  the possibilities are endless.  Should I paint one, just not sure. Both were found at GW for a great price.

The third is a  silver vase.  It's going to look great at Christmas filled with pine, holly, and a few pieces of spruce,  wow,  I can smell it now....
The fourth, is a pretty sconce I found for $6.00.  It will look so nice in the bedroom, or maybe the bathroom.  If I use it in the bath, think that I'll paint it silver, in the bedroom maybe off white, or gold, so many colors, so little time. I'll have to put that on my to do list for now.  Sure you know how that goes.  

I'm still looking for that special piece, maybe next weekend,  but for now I'm enjoying these.  Happy hunting!

Till next time,
