I recently bought this vintage owl lamp to use in my Halloween theme. It plugs in and the light is in the back.
Awwww......this butterfly was grounded and having problems. It was hobbling around my driveway.
I picked it up with a branch and it flew away.
I found these in a thrift store and have some good ideas on how to transform them into really useful and interesting Halloween decorations.
I can't wait to figure out how I will use this tray.
I've already started to transform this set of candlesticks. They only cost $1.95.
Sorry about the glare. This is a really nice rustic print that I can use with my Fall decorations.
I am a huge Andrew Wyeth fan. Though this is just an inexpensive print, the frame is decent and it even came with an attached light at the top. For $5.00 I just couldn't let this sit in the thrift store. This work is called "The Quaker". Wyeth said that this was one of the most difficult of all his works to reproduce.
I bought this old Italian creche to give away to someone. Though the figures are in very good condition, I will need to paint some of them and I am going to redo the entire stable.
These were all 99 cents each. The piece on the bottom right is one of my glass cauldrons. I use these for sugar and salt wells. The green pieces are really interesting. I am not sure but I think the coal scuttle might be a creamer and the mill bucket a sugar bowl. I have to research these but since most glass plants in the northeast are located near coal mining and steel mill areas, I am guessing these were made as novelty pieces to be sold as souveniers.
My fall flowering Clematis is just beginning to bloom.
Soon this will be covered in fragrant white mini blooms.
