There they were…calling my name! I saw them across the Goodwill store as I came in the door! I couldn’t believe my eyes..a pair of beautiful frenchy urns! I practically ran over and scooped them up. Oh, my! Aren’t they lovely? And what I really like is that they aren’t identical. And best of all…there was a pair of them! My friend Linda at Nina’s Nest can tell you I have a thing for pairs!
Look at the detail! Each of the little paintings on both of the urns is different! None of them are alike! Sooo…what do you think? Hand painted? Do I dare to believe that? And they were only $15 each…maybe a little more than I like to spend, but well worth it!
And that’s not my only great find! Just look at this little doggy clock! Isn’t it gorgeous? Once again, fabulous details! And he was only $9.00! I think his original price was much more than that.
Look at him! Isn’t he cute? Now I know you are wondering what my staff must think…bringing home a dog…
…and this should give you some idea of Baby Kitty’s opinion! lol
He is much too preoccupied with the flock of birds feeding on my front lawn to notice! Or perhaps he is feigning indifference!
Sooo…what to do with a wonderful doggy clock and two fabulous frenchy urns?
You put them on your mantel! I stacked the urns on some vintage books to give them some presence and centered the vignette around the wreath planter that I found a few weeks ago. My home is not formal and I like the contrast of the chippy white planter. I have also added my little frenchy boy that I have shown you before…another GW find at $3.00.
In fact, the entire vignette is made up of thrifting finds! Not bad, huh? That’s my kitchen that you can see in the reflection. In fact, I need to head in that direction to find a few catnip treats. Maybe that will help me get back in Baby Kitty’s good graces!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my mantel! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
