THE ACCIDENTAL FIND

Friday, February 20, 2009

Don't you LOVE when for No apparent reason you come across something in your Travels you just Fall in Love with! The other day, I made a quick stop in the local Thrift Shop, usually just a place where I find Beautiful Old Silver. this time tucked in a Corner next to some old beat up Picture frames was this Perfect little Treasure. A Gorgeous detailed brass frame that is a bit heavy in weight, really worn Velvet backdrop and Three Antique findings. Two are Stunning steel Buttons the other a delicate brass carved clip. The buttons are sewn on and the clip is glued. the Back is filled with worn tape keeping it all together but the front is so Pretty.It has a very Rich French Inspired look. I stopped looking, grabbed it up and payed my $5, ran to my car and sat and examined every inch. So, So, Pretty, it now is sitting on my nightstand in the "New Room" like it was made to sit there. It was a Good Week! I have lots of little house projects I'm working on and if you can believe it, I actually cut out a skirt this week to start my first sewing project! Stop in Monday, It's my Birthday and I'm gonna have a Give Away! Have a Wonderful Weekend, *Jamie*

That's what I love about thrift-shopping, it's like a treasure hunt, you never know what will be waiting for you in amongst the junk. You definitely found treasure!

Have fun with your sewing project!

That was a wonderful find. The only antique store I know of that is still open is the big antique mall. Is that where you go?

I can't wait to see your new skirt. I keep thinking I need to start sewing. I've been looking for some summer skirts and can't find anything.

This is very beautiful!! What a treasure indeed! Can't wait to see what you do with it and if you just keep it for decor that is fab too!

Oh my goodness, only $5. I would have hardly been able to contain myself. Your room looks gorgous. It truely looks like a wonderful place to retreat.
Happy Birthday (a little early)

Great find - those pieces must have had a special meaning to someone to mount them like that. Cutting the material out was always the worst part of sewing to me. Early Happy Borthday. :)

That is a lovely find! I think it's sweet when something like that finds a second chance to be "loved". :)
