Recent Finds That Thrill Me

I recently posted on my Facebook page that after a marathon cleaning and sorting of my "inventory", I was never going to buy anything again. Ever. The responses I got from my dearest friends were along the lines of "LOL", "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" and "I think Pam is delusional!" Anyway, here is some of the stuff I uncovered...

Fab 1970's floral painting that reminds me of Tahiti, even though I have never been there.

Sweet floral bookends.

Ditto, but with a Lily of the Valley thing going on.

Swimming swans table top.

Hooooooo is the most handsome concrete owl in the world?

Which one do you like best? Please advise!

All great but I love the bookends with the lily of the valley thing going on! Oh and of course a concrete owl is always a winner.

I absolutely love that first set of book ends! They are gorgeous. And the owl is very debonair indeed.

I cleaned yesterday during a Hoarding: Buried Alive Marathon. Didn't uncover finds like you, but found a pair of boots that I thought I lost 12+ years ago. Still haven't found my shredder or staple gun, though.

Concrete owl of course!

Bookends and table top. Floral bookends get me and the table top looks like it's just waiting to be hung on a wall.

I told myself the same thing many times too but still end up drifting into a thrift store every time I walk pass them. Great finds I wish our thrift stores have more of these gorgeous home wares.

I LOVE the second set of bookends. How much are you asking for them? How can I make them mine?

SousLeCharme said...

Definitely the painting. And I know why it reminds you of Tahiti. The colors are pure Gaugin.
