FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY

I love an old gold frame.
By themselves, grouped together
there is something so glam and fabulous about that
brassy old gold paint.


An old thick gold framed mirror is even better!!
I don't find super fabulous ones all that often,
but occasionally I do bump into a beauty at the thrift store

The chipping and missing gesso and ghosting in this mirror
doesn't bother me.
I love pieces that show their age & have lots of character.


This mirror is huge and I am absolutely loving it in it's new spot.
It fills the space perfectly!
( I'll share soon!)

I also found this dainty little cherub chalkware mirror.


I love it's tiny little size and patina.


Have you found any fabulous finds recently?

I will be off treasure hunting this weekend
~if you are in the Northern California area -
there are some fantastic sales going on over here!!

is having an oh soooo fabulous container unloading sale this Saturday and Sunday
in Corralitos which is near Santa Cruz...
Oh. My. I have been just droooooooling big time over the finds they have
shared as they have been unloading!
Pop over to their blog for more information!


My friend Sandy at
