Todays Great Finds

The picking has been GREAT lately ... here are a few of todays bounty ... some amazing metal items ... a great zinc and green trough from an equestrian farm that sadly was purchased for a new apartment complex ... some old radiators that had such great relief on them (we are going to be turning these into lights) ... a concrete piece that i am salivating over (love concrete) and a huge wood screen that I am going to use for display at the store to frame pressed botanicals or old prints. Love the industrial metal and butcher block table ... this I know, will turn out amazing ... quirky and one of a kind. The leather books with gold filigree ... les miserables ... a fabulous set for a bookcase or coffee table.

I love to show the state in which I find some of these things and what they end up looking like in the end. Mr. Oscar is crazy talented and works magic with everything I bring home ... I simply could not do what I do without him.

Washington Moss

Amazing Washington Moss ... perfect for those of us who love a natural garden with lots of architectural concrete statuary and urns. It takes years to get this way ... basically you have to ignore it for a looongggg time. But when spring comes and the blossoms from the cherry trees start exploding and the little leaves start sprouting ... it is simply magical. Absolutely love this time of year ... i had a few moments out in the garden today, just puttering around ... and so I had to grab my camera and take some pictures.
