Well that's what I did!
My friend Elaine and I were shopping all day hitting up consignment thrift and GW stores. I found a lot of great things. Another chandelier, an end table some odds and ends and this........
I have been searching stores and the cheapest one I found was 50% off at $45 at Kohl's. Goodwill price.....$3.99......Yippee!!!
Isn't she beautiful! (insert silent scream here)
I went home smiling because I knew it was a good day! One great find is always worth it! Although I found many but I will post those at another time.
Another GW find was this ceramic fork. Utensils on walls are popping up all over so I thought this would go great in my kitchen with a little tweaking.
The green was too olive for me so I painted it a lighter tone and glazed it again.
There was a surprise when I turned it over......
This little fork was 42 years old and not broken anywhere wow!
This is it finished. I hung it on the wall inside an antique frame.
I love the patina on the frame. I even left the old nails in it for character.
I think it needs something else on the bottom. Maybe a little sign with a word like Buon Appetito or EAT or Fork not sure but I love it anyways. It is different and I love different.
What do you think about my finds?
Today is the neighborhood yard sale in my parent's neighborhood. So I am off looking for more deals.
I will post them here so wish my luck!
The thrill of the hunt O' how I love thee......
