I Wish I'd Made This

A few weeks ago, two friends and I spent a glorious Saturday together going antiquing. We went to a yard sale, a thrift store, and about four antique stores. I came away with some wonderful treasures, one of which I want to share today. I found this at one of the antique stores, and just fell in love with it:

This picture is taken in our upstairs hall. I painted it red, and though I love the color, I'm not happy with it there. I've been planning to use the red in a different room, and to repaint the hall. But when I set this piece there, I was almost tempted to leave it that way, just cause it looks so good!

Isn't it stunning?

    I just found your site after you found mine!

    The picture you posted of your grilled steak dinner made me so hungry, I showed it to my husband and he immediately went to Whole Foods.

    Guess what were having for dinner tonight?

    Thanks for finding me...count me in as a loyal reader.

  4. Stunning is the most fitting word for it. Fantastic find! I have left you a tag over at frazzy dazzles. Looking forward to reading your answers - Jen

  5. The red bird matches the red wall so I think the red wall stays!


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and to let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
