Spent the morning at Scott's Antique Market this morning with my daughter and brought home some lovely finds. Most of them I will show in future posts, but here are a couple. This vintage vase called my name. Not sure why because I'm not usually drawn to this type of thing, but maybe it is because it is green and that is something lacking in our wintry scenery these days.
Something about it's lovely shape and curves just drew me in. I think it
just said "spring" to me.
Next up is a piece of a light fixture that I actually found at Columbus Architectual Salvage, which was just down the street from Scott's. I love the creative way they invented a new use for it. The fixture could sit in just about any jar and would hold several sizes of candles. I'm anxious to try it with my aqua Ball jars, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again.
And lastly, this silk head of lettuce is from Hobby Lobby, not Scott's either. I saw it yesterday and it was only 30% off, but it was the only one they had left in their spring collection, so I didn't wait for a better sale, afraid that it would be gone.
I love the curly leaves, the beautiful wording all over it, and the way the light shines through the leaves.
Don't they make a lovely trio?
The combination of the beautiful and varied textures
make my heart sing.
I can hardly wait until spring so I can use it on my table.
