Flea Market Find

Scott's Antique Market was in town this weekend and I bought myself an early Christmas present ~ a pair of corbels.  I have always wanted a pair of corbels, but they are always so big and so pricey.  This time I found a pair that were small enough to use in my house and within my price range.




 
I was playing around with them today, trying to find a place where they would look best.  I had just finished waxing the bottom section of my hutch and tried them out there with a small tree in the center.
 



 
I really liked the simpleness of them here, but there is a top part to this hutch, so this is not where they will end up.
 



 
The tree was a Goodwill find last year and I added a few sparkly items to glitz it up a little.
 



 
It all makes such a simple statement, which I find I like more and more the older I get.

What a pretty find - just goes to show that one shouldn't settle for 'almost right' as 'just right' is waiting out there somewhere.

Great find. Your corbels are perfect in that spot. Love the little tree too.

We have a collection of them. I think we were lucky and started collecting them before they got popular and also was in the right places at the right times. I adore them and think yours are very nice and interesting. They will move all over your house, just wait and see.

I love the corbels Cindy!! It is so hard to find architectural pieces like that around here for some reason.

Your tree is so sweet- It could stay out all year!

Trying to get breads baked then I think I'm done!

Your corbels were a great find. I love them on the hutch even if that's not where they will stay. I love the little tree in the urn too.
Warm Christmas wishes to you.
