The Look for Less

I blogged of my adoration for this fixture HERE and Urban Archaeology sells the gorgeous Boathouse pendant for $690-$950 depending on the finish. Love it. Want it. Just can't afford it.

And the Look for Less version from Pottery Barn Kids for only $69! After visiting our local Pottery Barn outlet I quickly discovered that PBKids is a smart solution for any age group. A good looking alternative that doesn't break the bank.

Found : Vintage Prevost Etchings

Found. A set of 70 year old Jean-Louis Prevost etchings. Pristine except for the slightest patina of age, just the barest yellow cast.

And marked down to a mere 20 dollars at a local antique mall. Perfect. Can't wait to get them framed and on the wall.

Shopping Salvage

This weekend we hit the regional salvage spot for some hunting and gathering for our renovation. Looking for a few specifics but always open to the possibilities.

Hmm... Possible door handles for the new french door installation.

Lets get a close up of that amazing arch.

I wish we had a spot for that. Its just a bit over scale for the tiny Tudor.

I know just the spot for that.

And twenty or so of these may find a home on our kitchen ceiling.

More cool doors. Although, the arched set at the top of this post is my favorite.

Yum. Table love.

Trunks anyone?

I spy something Swedish.

Thanks for going treasure hunting with me. Hope you like a dig as much as I do. Never let a little dust get in the way.
