Friday's Find #158

TGITF Friends!  I've been working on a special project and my vision includes a vintage perfume decanter. Of course I've seen them countless times when I wasn't in the market and I just knew I would find one on my recent adventure but my search was unsuccessful until...

...I returned to home sweet home and stopped by a fun recently opened shop Lemons & Lace. They just opened in June and I'd only been in once before.  I think the sign is so cute!

Anyway, imagine my delight when my eyes landed on this little beauty!

I am totally smitten with the ornate detail and the pretty glass stopper. It is just what I envisioned for my project--coming soon!

By now you know my affection for vintage print; I'm a pushover for vintage sheet music, children's books and even the occasional appliance manual. One of the thrift stores I frequent had stacks of vintage magazines for $1 each. Unfortunately, most were very damaged or had many loose pages but I did find this one. Isn't the art on the cover gorgeous?

The last few finds are from the same yard sale. Random bargains that I'll have on hand for future projects and can shop my home instead of buying new.

Until next time, happy hunting!
