New Brass Treasure

Posted by on Jul 23, 2012 in brass, family room, thrift store, yard sale | 9 comments

I continue to blog from NY!

Now we are at camp enjoying amazing weather and lively children!

Today I want to share some treasures that I found at Goodwill and a yard sale the week before I left.

I cannot resist Goodwill and yard sales!

Here is another example of why I should not resist!

I scored the urn for $6 at Goodwill and the candlesticks for 25 cents each at a yard sale!

The brass is such a traditional look.

It mixes so well with my neutral colors and chunky gold frames.

My mom has always decorated with a very traditional look.

She has blue and white porcelain in practically every room.

When I saw these candlesticks, they reminded me of the comfort of my own home growing up.

I do not even want candles in them. . .

they would cover up my new urn!

I will continue to add brass as I find (cheap) pieces that I like!

Life to the full to you!
