Aside from the great finds I shared with you from the Philadelphia I Love Thrifting day…
…I thought it would be fun to show you some of my recent finds from this summer so far.
Above are two brass pieces, a bird and a large key, that I found at a local thrift store. I love the quail, especially. It reminds me of the ceramic quails that I found and painted white last fall.
If you told me 5 years ago that I would be writing the following sentence, I would not believe you.
I know. Brass normally conjures up visions of bad 80’s… anything. It is making a comeback in fashion and home decor.
And used in a thoughtful and sparing way, I think brass can be both warm and modern looking. Don’t believe me? Check out the pin board I created on Pinterest.
After a little cleaning, I’m hoping to use these two brass pieces as accents in our den. (where I also plan to hang the gold sunburst mirror I am working on)
And here is more gold! I found this gold, stretchy belt and floral ribbon this past week at a flea market. Not sure if I will use the belt as a belt, or do something with it. Because it is stretchy, the belt fits around my hips and higher for an empire silhouette, so it might be nice to keep “as is”.
I love the combination of the white + pink + red + gold in the ribbon. In fact, it reminds me of the colors going on in my china-cabinet-posing-as-a-bookshelf. Maybe I can make something with the ribbon for that room? Hmmm.
