And now for something completely different.
Did I fake you?
More from yesterday's estate sale excursion:
When I saw these, I was sure I knew exactly what I would do with them: I would remove the pictures, paint the wood a glossy white, and use them to frame some swatches of my first strikeoffs ( not here yet, drat!)
But these silhouettes have enchanted me and I may have a hard time replacing them:
Don't they look neat all close up like that?
Ah, we'll see.
This is cool, reminds me of a violin or cello with all the scrolly wooodwork:
It seems to be some kind of corner shelf, only the shelf part is long gone:
I love this neat old cardboard-y print thing:
And with some great chippy textures. You know how I love that.
And a horsie:
Eeek, this is all looking quite dreary. How about a little color?
Oh, yes. Vintage Christmas ornaments.
Lots of pink!
Yummy candy colors. mmmm.
And how about some orange, my fave?
A cool covered tin!
Even the lid is awesome and perfect all by itself:
And oh man, when I saw another one? SCORE!
It really couldn't be any cooler. I mean, unless it was filled with something crazy awesome. But it wasn't. Still.
The colors! The design! The lid!
And of course, I had to see how they looked together.
Isn't it neat how similar they are? And how gorgeous they look together?
Oh yeah, and the pie tins:
Table Talk pie tins!
And for some reason, I grabbed these funny little corn-husk dolls:
And then I set them up like a film still from Kill Bill:
xo, more soon.
nope, I'm not done yet.
