My Splurge!


I thought I'd show you a piece I picked up at Monticello this week-end.

I loved it, it was cast iron, rusty, chippy, heavy and white!

Everything about it screamed, "Take me home with you!"

"I will! I will!!!" I shouted back.

(It seems like something else screamed that recently.)


An old garden fence!

It's a fun size measuring 19" tall.

I just don't come across many things like this so....I splurged!



Things aren't always perfect with old items.


This piece was a little lopsided so it needed a little help!

Tacky...maybe.

But just keeping it real!

Wow girl, you found the best finds. I would have so come home with these to if I would have seen them! Anything white and rusty and chippy makes my heart beat faster.
