I took a few pictures of things I fell in love with but either couldn't bring myself to spend the cash, or couldn't think of a place I could use it. From left to right:
1. The blue sky between the barns was gorgeous. I also loved the old feed/water tubs. I would love one to serve drinks in, but goodness, where would you store something so huge?
2. The oil painting of the fields was framed so well. I would have taken it home with me if it hadn't been $300. Yikes. Probably not a bad price for an original painting in that frame, but a little above my self-alloted sale spending.
3. A bright blue windsor chair. Can you tell I'm loving all things peacock blue these days? Too bad I'm swimming in chairs at home. But I wish I'd been able to bring it home with me.
4. These equestrian candle hurricanes were great, but I couldn't really see them fitting into my home. If I'd been able to get them for a song, I would have tried my darndest to find a place for them, but they were on the pricey side, so there they stayed.
As for what I did come home with...other than the chair I posted about yesterday, I snagged a couple other small things. Blake's been wanting a terrarium for ages and we found the perfect one. It's now residing on the trunk in our bedroom nook. Right now it's housing the plastic plant it came with, but I need to make a run to Home Depot for some colorful succulents.
I fell in love with this tile and carved wood tray. Probably not something I needed, but I do so adore it. I think it'll be pretty for corralling the salt, pepper and napkins on the table. Blake served a mission for our church for a year in Portugal (and a year in Cape Verde) and the tile reminded me of Portuguese tile, which was the clincher. So, even thought I didn't need it, I kinda needed it. You know what I mean.
