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!
I thought you should know that I'm a Heavy Metal Junkie..... Although not in the usual sense. I have this wierd affection for Cast Iron Urns and Doorstops, Floral Tole Trays and Tole Sconces, French Enamelware, Old Wireware Baskets, Birdcages etc. etc. Most of which carry a floral theme. I thought I'd share with you my collection of Old Doorstops and Cast Iron Curtain Tiebacks. I will add some pictures that were featured and photographed for a Local Magazine in our area called 805 Living. Doorstops are so fun to collect and decorate with, especially when grouped together.....So enjoy!
I just want to thank Jennifer from www.Theoldpaintedcottage.com for featuring my home for the month of October on her website. She is truly amazing at what she does. I don't think she realizes how gifted she is and how many ladies out there look up to her. Keep up the good work Jennifer because you bring a smile and inspiration to everyone you touch.
