Weekly Finds

Ohhh how I love this little peignoir, made in USA ... and it still has a tag on it. The tag reads: Gossard Artemus Peignoir set, $38.00. Now I just have the top, but that's okay ! Unfortunately the color just doesn't show in the photos, it really is a lovely eggshell.

Then I found a bridal veil to add to my collection. This one is newer but it's so has pearls scattered on the veil. You can't see them because they aren't on the veil that goes over the face but on the longer part I couldn't get a shot of :))
Every once in awhile I'll find something romantic and shabby with roses on it. Usually it's a candle holder but this time a wonderful wine basket.
Now for a weekly "do" ... I found a large plaster artichoke and painted it.  Yes, I could have spray painted it gold or silver but, sigh, it's just not in me to do that.  I had to paint it.
After I did a layer of green, added some red, I lightly distressed it with gold.
Did you find some good things?  Thanks for  your visit and comments, I do appreciate and try to return all comments and follows.  Until next time, ya'll bee sweet.

Great things and remakes. I really like what you did to the artichoke. Looks natural now.

Hi Francie!
I always love your finds but I have to tell you, I found a wooden pineapple that looks like your artichoke. Of course, I bought it for .59, brought it home and had no idea what to do with it. Now I know!!! Thank you for sharing your finds and what you make with them! I love it!
