Happy New Year. I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2010!
I started off my New Year yesterday by antiquing at a couple of my new favorite local antique stores, and of course found some fabulous goodies to freshen up my home decor.
Here are the pics, I hope this inspires.
Here are some wonderful antique watch cases. The silver case actually had a beautiful watch face with all the workings still attached inside.
As you can see the patent dates are from 1888-1892.
The hands on the watch are gold filigree.
I found another beautiful prayer card. I love the colors!
Here is a great old basket I picked up too.
Here is a picture of my favorite antique vanity. It was the first antique piece I ever purchased. I LOVE IT!!!
A beautiful vintage armoire.
And last but not least, my new vintage chandelier my husband gave me for Christmas, and it still works. I am a chandelier-aholic. I love them and have several that I don't even have hung yet. Most of them need to be re-wired, so eventually I'll get it done so I can use them. I love that no matter what your style is, a chandelier can bring such elegance and warmth to a room. Especially coupled with an old farm house table that has layers an layers of peeling paint.
