Day 809: fun finds
I popped into Hoover Antiques Gallery on my lunch break yesterday. There were several note-worthy items, but I was in a hurry, and only pulled out my camera in one booth. I thought these green pendants were super-cool. Not all that unremarkable, except for the rope detail. Wouldn't they look so delicious with a couple of bird prints? $500 for the pair.
Also loved this iron bench. I like benches, and I like to see garden accessories brought indoors. The pretty linen seat didn't hurt it much, but the $750 price tag -- ouch! -- sure did.
There were two of these chandeliers -- hung too high to get a great picture (unless I stood on the bench!). They reminded me of this one. While I had kitchen lighting on my mind (after seeing the green pendants) I thought they would look lovely over a big center island in a kitchen filled to the brim with white marble. So, in a kitchen I'll never own. Oh well, it's sure fun to dream!
