Can you believe that August has almost come to an end? It has definitely been a fun first month and I have so much more planned that I can hardly wait to share with you! Right now, it’s time for another roundup of my favorite finds.
I found this horse a few weeks ago and it was love at first sight. I have no idea why, I guess the heart just knows. I think I payed around $2.00.
A little dab of gray paint…
He is resting nicely above my doorway. I think, visually, he’s a happy little surprise to those who glance his way.
I found a globe for about $3.50. I’ve been seeing globes slapped all over the blogosphere, so I was pumped to snag one! It’s a little outdated, so I won’t rely on it for accuracy–just aesthetics.
Let’s pause and talk about how unbelievably excited I am about this next find. If anyone saw a crazy lady loading her cart with candlesticks…um, that was me. I have been wanting some for quite a while and even in discount stores they are pricey. At Goodwill, these ranged from about $1.50-$2.50–seriously, a huge fraction of what I have seen them priced elsewhere.
After a little cleaning and scraping of wax, they were as good as new.
This little bowl was in a “half off” cart for $.60! How had no one snagged it, yet??! I think it would be perfect on a nightstand to drop your jewelry in, or on a side table for keys, change, etc.
Totally unrelated– look what my friend and I just finished in my hall! It took 3 sessions together and quite a few hours, but it was totally, totally worth it.
I traced it with a stencil that I found on Jones Design Company and then we just painted it a creamy white and outlined it in gold. I think it needs a gold, sunburst mirror. Any votes? Yay, nay?
Have a great week, friends!
Enjoying the Good Life,
