My Latest Score
(I want to thank Angie at Knick of Time for featuring this post!)
Hope you're all doing great! I have to share a fabulous, unique treasure that I just found last weekend! I've never seen anything like this-in person, at least. There's a local shop that sells mostly primitives, but I pop in occasionally and I sometimes find cool items that can be mixed in with my decor. Well, I spotted this and ran right over to nab it!
It's some kind of gigantic flashcard! It's made out of heavy cardboard, and this baby is BIG (like 31'' x 21'') The owner said that it came out of a school house in Poland! I looked up the words and sure enough, they're written in Polish. ("Here is a hand. This is my dad's hand..." etc.) The other side has a different picture and writing, too, but I liked this side the best. I just think it's SO fun! She said they had several, but the others sold and this was the last one...lucky for me!
After trying it in a couple of places, I ended up hanging it in the living room where this little shelf used to be. That change inspired me to restyle the top of the small card-catalog cabinet that is underneath it...you know, the decorating domino effect!
I dug this silver candleabra out of my basement-I had totally forgotten about it, its been stored down there so long! I grouped together a few other goodies on a heavy silver tray, and voila-instant new look!
This now gives a whole different vibe, and I'm happy with it! I love to add some 'playfulness' to my decor, and I think that this huge flashcard does the trick! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fantastic weekend :)
