This week I wanted to show you some of the amazing things that I found but didn't take home. Sometimes one just has to pass on an amazing find for so many reasons ... no space, can't affort, can't justify, don't need ...
This amazing bedroom set caught my eye. It's one of those finds that I find so ugly it's beautiful in a strange way.
I love that it came with a matching dresser with mirror. But no room, can't affort, can't justify (:
These tired old beauties made me think of all the projects and quilts and dresses and mending that might have been done with age old love of another time ... sitting and waiting for a new home and a new project ...
I believe they all worked as they had samples of stitches under the feet ... but it's a hard thing getting to know a new machine and my desk would be a bit crowded .. even with a sunny orange friend!
One of Gwyn's favorite things are "girls". She get's very attached to photos of girls or dolls with big sad eyes. We haven't done a lot to 'engender' her with femininity ... half the time she's even in boys clothes ... but something attracts her to pretty girls, so when I saw this old lithograph I thought it would look so nice her in room. But some thrift stores just ask a little bit too much for a simple item and I left these ones behind.
Part of the fun of hunting for treasures is only bringing home the real bargains and specials finds ... but that also means seeing some amazing items in the process that just can't come home ... but it makes the hunt that much more thrilling (:
