Treasure Hunting

Once again I awoke to a beautiful morning!
The weather is cooler and the sky is a fabulous shade of blue!
I thought I would share some of my treasures with you!

I've been needing a chair for the bathroom in the cottage (I sold the one that was in there)
Something a little bit smaller and plain so that I could put a slipcover on it!
This is what I found!
Along with...

These great candlesticks and mirrors!
I have a very old french settee in the upstairs hall that I am recovering and needed a mirror to go above it.
Found it!
This one is really old and gold...
But I have an idea!
Of course, I will share it when I finish!

The smaller mirror and the 3 wood candlesticks are for the mantle in the cottage...(it was needing some attention)
I hope you have an amazing weekend...I will be painting and enjoying this very Autumn like weather!
Until next time...
