And this highly ornate pot is a feast for the eyes!
These pendant lights were a rummage sale find. I love those milk glass globes! Again, doesn't really fit my home and style, but I can't help but appreciate the beautiful details in both the glass and the metal pieces.
And finally - a map! Actually it's a wooden puzzle with a copyright from the early 1920's. I considered keeping it to help my grandchildren learn their US geography (minus the one missing piece in the northeast). But then again, do I really want to risk it getting chocolate fingerprints and kool-aid spots added to the felt tip marker that's already been used to outline each piece? Hmmm...and I can't imagine how exactly, but I'm sure it could be used in an artsy/modern mixed media creation to become something wonderful and treasured. Just have to get it into the right hands.
