TGITF Friends! After a hectic schedule last week, I'd promised myself I was going to stay home Friday and get some work done. Then just before I went to bed Thursday night, a Facebook yard sale post caught my eye. You probably know where this is headed...
...now, it wasn't just any old yard sale and what caught my eye was a picture of this St. Francis statue. The photo was at a distance and it was of a table crammed full of stuff so I couldn't really see any details. I thought the statue might be resin but I decided it was worth an early morning dash to the sale. I'd been on the look out for a St. Francis ever since I visited the charming little chapel in the woods and fell in love with this blessing:
I spied him as soon as I parked my car and was delighted to see he appeared to be concrete. My next thought was that I might have to
ask beg the seller to hold him for me, because I only had $3 cash--remember I hadn't planned on going to any sales! I rushed over and sure enough, he was solid concrete and just what I had imagined for my garden and I bet you can guess how much he cost ;) Yep, $3! He's right at home in the ivy and I was inspired to create these stamped prayer garden stones.
Here's a closer look and I have these available now also. Thanks to all who sent kind comments and placed orders for my salt, cement and seeds! Y'all are the best and I am blessed!
Now for the rest of this week's finds! Would you believe on my way home from that sale, I found this? I also told myself that I wouldn't buy any more carts because even though they are super handy, I already have 2 in the garden and one inside...but it was $1! One. Dollar. Sometimes willpower is overrated--don't you think? My other vintage carts have all been made over with a retro vibe, but I have something different in mind for this one.
In my opinion, vintage cookie cutters are a welcome addition to any kitchen and this copper trio is especially nice. Available
Love the beautiful embroidery on this pristine pillowcase! Besides sleeping on them, I use vintage pillowcases for a pretty storage solution. Available
Lovely set of Enoch Wedgwood Tunstall Limited Countryside saucers, made in England from the 1960s. Vintage transferware creates such a gorgeous display. Available
Remember, there's still a few days left of my Christmas in July sale!
Until next time, happy hunting!
