Who’s the fairest dog of them all? Why, OLIVE of course!
I don’t believe I have shown you guys my treasures from the latest antique mall extravaganza and the Art Festival I mentioned visiting for my Dad’s birthday weekend.
I snagged this mirror at the antique mall in my neck of the woods for 30 bones. I thought that was a steal considering mirrors are always so dang expensive.
And Olive is clearly the fairest of them all. I mean, come on. Just look at that semi-permanent nervous looking expression.
The next two finds were from The Delaware Art Festival in Ohio. Good ole Ohio. I never thought I would miss my home state so much.
Isn’t that just gorgeous? The artist hand-makes all of these boxes with love and tenderness, and even places a few strategically placed surprises in the drawers…
Great. Now I just told The Internet where my stash is hidden.
I keed, I keed. Sadly, I don’t actually have anything occupying these drawers yet. Any ideas? It’s sitting just behind the couch, nestled between the cocoon lamp and house plant. Even though I’m not using it practically yet, it was too beautiful to resist.
The other art festival find was a deliciously loud-ticking clock.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. For some reason that’s a really soothing sound to me. I get to hear it every night when I cook dinner.
I decided that my new clock and mini chest of drawers reproduced to spawn Cogsworth from Beauty and The Beast. The mystery is solved. You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming.
I also made a visit to my favorite nursery in Indy. I have wanted a dramatically large jade plant for I can’t even remember how long and my wish finally came true.
Are you ready to behold this beauty?
Did you even know that Jade flowered? ME EITHER! I saw this baby and knew it had to be mine. Excuse the doorway placement… that’s just for the photograph. We still need hang this beaut somewhere where she can be displayed in all of her magnificent splendor.
I happened to find The Most Perfect Ever hanging basket for her, too, at the antique mall.
Can’t you just see how this whole thing is going to go together? I might start worshiping it. That’s how in love I am. This just got awkward.
Ok, so the final antique store purchase was about 24 vintage handkerchiefs; to show them to you we have the beautiful Olive, modeling her little heart out.
I plan on making a bunting banner out of these, but this project is way down in the queue so I’ll just have to be patient.
I think Olive is ready for this project to be started, worked on, and completed.
Welp, those are all of my new treasures. The “one man’s trash” saying really does ring true around here.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a credenza update!
