I hit the jackpot this time around during my monthly trip to Denio’s! I always see a ton of amazing things when I go, but not all of them suit my purpose or fill a need (or particular want). But this time I struck gold. I am always on the hunt for fabulous paintings, and this time I was lucky enough to find that floral beauty. Some of you might remember seeing it in it’s new home above the mantle in my Family Room, and it looks stunning there! This dresser (yes technically a dresser since it has drawers, even though it’s smallish) will make an amazing night stand or accent piece and I haven’t fully decided which yet. It has such good bones. It needs to new handles and needs to be refinished, or at least given a decent sanding and feeding to restore it’s luster, but other than that it’s in amazing condition and is actually wood and not laminate.

The fabulous brass birds of an unknown variety are not only a chic pair of accessories but have a quirky little set of feet on them. A bit like a cross between a monster chicken and a dinosaur. Totally odd, and definitely unique. The skull, I just love him. I have always adored a bit of the macabre in decor, I can’t deny that. At least it’s somewhat close to Halloween so I can pretend that’s why I have him out, but let’s be real people, he will stay year round! There is also an amazing little bronze sculpture next to the skull, but I realize now you can’t hardly see it. My hubster picked that guy out, and adores it. He is a big fan of this style of scuplture and this piece is perfect to add a bit of interest to his nightstand or desk.

I’m heading out to treasure hunt again soon, and honestly it’s become a favorite family affair. We all go, and plot our hunt accordingly…
