The funky, rusty brooch encircling the perch was snagged recently at the Penn Square Antiques Mall in St. Joe. Ahhhh . . . how I would love to be there right now.
And some interesting odds and ends, all in creamy white, to get that Frenchy old world feel I was looking for with this house.
And as I was antique mall shopping/daydreaming, I got the idea for spoons for the roof. Still unsure of how to cut and bend them, I decided to include them unaltered.
And a slathering of grout completes the look. SOLD
And meet my new man. Thanks so much to Barb at Sister's for allowing me to shop her blog and for shipping this baby from Iowa to KC. I'm taking very good care of him, Barb.
Found this fab certificate at W.D. Pickers, dated 1874. I am so curious about the history of people and just what did this little baby do with her life?
And one of my most favorite antique mall finds, again from dealer #11 in St. Joe - I'm waiting for just the right mosaic piece to feature this one.
