I Was Just Going To Look Around...Part II

A day or two ago I finally put up my “followers” gadget. I kept hesitating and wasn’t
going to do it but a few of you convinced me I should.  I hope you are enjoying your
visit and will come back often.  Please feel free to click on "followers". I hope you will
leave a comment if you feel like it. I am very grateful you stopped by.

As I mentioned earlier, I was looking for a few pieces for a couple of houses.  I showed
you one that I thought would work in one house and here is the other piece I think might
work for the other house. I don’t know exactly how to describe it so I will call it an
Arts & Crafts piece. I believe it is made of pine. I think it would be perfect for an
Arts & Crafts style home...

Here are a few more things that I found intriguing.

I love the use of industrial carts as coffee tables in a living room or den and as
accessories on a porch. I really liked these...




And this is quite unique...

How about a huge stained glass door?

Well, if you are interested in doors, you might need a few knobs for the door


This ornate hand carved Shagun hardwood piece dates back at least 200 years and
maybe more...
My guess is that you would have to have a really, really really large home!

This might be more my style.  A beautiful stained glass window of roses...

And I keep going back to these two beauties...one of alabaster and the other of copper...


Now, be honest, do you think a coke machine and jukebox are necessary in every
kitchen?  Be honest!

How about a tub for a nice cool summer soak...
Oops! Maybe not!

Now that we've settled on things for the house, how about a new gate for the yard...

You might need an abstract sculpture for the lawn...

And finally, maybe a few stars to fill the summer night sky...



There are  lots more fun and unique things to see, and you can visit

You have lit a spark in my imagination. I must see these unusual things first hand.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, how I would LOVE to visit this place, myself! I also love seeing industrial carts/tables turned into lovelies for the home. And I'm a huge fan of stained glass. My mom made me a gorgeous window for the Victorian home we lived in a few houses back, but, unfortunately, it doesn't fit any of my current windows. Fun post!!! xx Suzanne

I adore the tin stars ... did you make them, do you sell them, or what?
anything tech-y or industrial strikes a chord with me...

What a great place! I'm captivated by all things architectural and worn with character. That copper fixture is amazing and those colorful stars are just so fun!

Oh my gosh, such wonderful treasures all over the place. I saw a few I would love to have! It would be really hard to leave there empty handed!!
Thanks for the sweet comment about the fireplace mantel, and the comment troubles. Blogger is finicky at times, isn't it?
I do love your idea about the candles and think I will try to round some up tomorrow!
All is well with the root canal I'm happy to report. Whew...glad that's over!
Have a great week, come back again soon!

What a great shop. I like the stars because they have an antique look to them. I still remember using an old Coca-Cola machine like that when I was a kid! And oh how I would love glass door knobs through my whole house!

Hope you had fun browsing through all the shop had to offer!
