Barbara Jacksier made me do it......






First and formost I feel honored that Barbara chose my blog as her~Blog Du Jour~this month... So now the pressure is on, especially since she mentions I've only posted a couple of times. Since I was on the subject of my Objects of Desire I thought I'd throw in a few pictures of another one of my sicknesses (oh I mean passions) for Old Tole. The rustier the better in my book and if you can find a Pair well you know you hit the mother load. Most everything I own is in pairs. (I'm a Libra and it must come from the whole balancing thing). I love Tole Wall Sconces, Candleholders, Lamps, Oh and if you see a Tole Birdcage don't pass it up it may be years before you see another one.....I think Tole Pieces add such a Romantic Garden feel to a home, it brings the Garden in even when your garden isn't Blooming....So Enjoy! Occasionally you will find Old Tole pieces on my ebay site under Fascinatingfinds. Thanks again Barbara!

Hi Cheryl :)

I actually thought I had already added you to my list, but hadn't, so I just did ;)

I've only been blogging since March of this year, but it's been an absolute joy. I'm so glad you joined us :)

We really have this collecting passion in common Cheryl. I seem to find lots of tole here in the South East for some reason. That Barbara J is a great gal! ~XO~Janet
