I was out on Saturday visiting mom, and stopped at a little cottage antique shop along the way home that happened to be open (never usually is!). They are closing their doors later this month and had a few bargains to be found, but these old syphons were the only ones that caught my eye and we affordable. Of course I already have some but could not resist....and you know how I love aqua!
This tattered plate I had spotted in a brocante shop the last time that I was over in France was charming to me because of the old staple repair.
At only 5 Euros it was coming home to the U.S. with me...but packed in a suitcase it sadly broke. I still believed in it's beauty and glued it together and now I find it even more lovely.
And at holiday time I love to use it to pile on natural elements that muffle the cracks and are accented by the rich blues.
And then there are these tole rose candle holders, that I found awhile ago covered in white wax and in my design eye are perfectly imperfect.
And lastly, a large and tall pair of vintage plaster columns that are missing pieces, have cracks and yet wonderful for giving lots of varying height to a room's vignettes.
Have a wonderful week and watch for more posts coming this week.
