The One I Couldn't Part With


People often ask me if it's difficult to sell the things I find. Most of the time, it's really not. I always buy things with a purpose in mind - either to keep or sell. Occasionally, there is a really special piece I just can't let go of, even if it was meant to put a price tag on. This was the case with an arched leaded glass window I found while in Kansas City a few weeks ago.



I brought it in the house and "just wanted to see" what it might look like on the mantel with my other architectural salvage pieces...of course it was perfect.


So for now, I'll be keeping it : ) I love the varied height it adds with my other large arched window. I also found a pair of the corbels you see here, and one of my favorite finds yet - the 12th Street sign! Since I changed my blog/business name I knew I wanted to find this sign - I just didn't know I'd find it so quickly! I was thrilled to have this special piece!



I also recently found the perfect finishing touch to this wall in our little breakfast area.


I got the large B plaque for Christmas last year, but always knew I needed more to finish off the wall. I found these hanging lanterns online and knew they would be such a fun addition. I think they are really unique pieces and love that they fit right into this corner!


This room was always a bit of a "second thought" after our living/dining area, but I'm feeling like it's finally coming together!

    1. Thanks Erin! They are from unbeatablesale.com. I found them several places online, like overstock, but that was where I found them cheapest! Have a great week!
