Friday Find

My town has a community thrift store that I stop into frequently to look for furniture to paint.  While I don't always find furniture, I inevitably find something...especially since their prices are crazy cheap. 

My last trip did not disappoint.  I found this brass bamboo tray for only $1.00.  It's engraved "Neiman Marcus" on the bottom, so I'm sure it originally cost much more.


I have a newfound love of all things brass.

I thought the roses were pretty, so I couldn't resist taking a few more photos.

I've also been loving simple black and white art, so I tried creating my own.

Here's what inspired it:


Julia at Pawley's Island Posh made these herself too:


Here's one last look.  I love this little table.  It's from the turn-of-the-century and was from the hotel where we got married.

Happy Weekend!

a perfect little vignette! love the flowers, the picture, the tray and the table! Isn't it funny how things come back into style? Two years ago, I would have turned my nose up at that little tray, but now I love it!
