Found Treasures and a Winner

Oh, the treasures I've been finding lately
 Talk about a lamp parts treasure find!
I almost fainted that I actually found them.
This shop had vintage brass filigree crown rings
and so much more
 I simply cannot stop buying vintage findings
for the love of the tarnished
the whiteness of these beautiful petite bowls
 The vintage angel lamp part is going to be a project
that I have been dreaming about...more on that later
 I'm totally smitten with my finds...
how about that vintage cast metal base...sigh
Let's get to the lucky winner
A Bit of Colour
(a lovely jewelry blog)
Please email me your name & address
your la femme dish & bits
will be on it's way!

Happy Friday Everyone

    And a big congrats to theses beautiful finds. I love the iron base, I would love to see more of that and maybe used as a stand or platform on your kitchen counter with a potted topiary or opted herbs sitting on it.

  13. Lovely RHONDA! Happy Sunday ma chère! Thank you for coming to visit my post and for such lovely words. I thought of you today as my husband and I were out antiquing. We found the BEST, the absolute BEST FRENCH antique shop not far from our home. The woman just moved her shop into a beautiful corner shop that an older gentleman rented for his antique shop. He passed away recently at almost 90, so she took over and the LOAD of perfect and lovely French goodies..and the prices are reasonable. I'm going back for a plateau and an authentic wooden basket. So much to see!

    Enjoy a new week mon amie! Anita
