Vintage Find

Hello hello...did you have a good weekend? I'm excited because it's Thanksgiving week, which means I'm only going to work two days - yesss! Oh, and of course the whole family and turkey time time too. Yum.

Here's another addition to the vintage finds category...these lovely framed birdies found at a local fleamarket. I'm not sure how "vintage" they are, but they have that great kitsch feel. The wooden frames also add a special touch. I photographed the frames on an amazing patch of moss growing in Dave's yard. I thought the dark green moss was a great accent, and I love the way moss feels...all squishy and soft. Wouldn't it be neat to have a moss covered wall? Hmm...don't think the landlord would like that.

To a fun and festive week ahead...

These are cute little birdies.

I am actually dreading this week b/c it means not being able to work while family is around. Ugh. Sad to say.....

the plates are wonderful, never saw anything like those wood frames. and yes, i love moss.

jae said...

It works perfectly against the moss. I have two very small pieces of it that I always try to photograph against, but alas, too small. If you see me in the backyard, I'm just "borrowing" the moss.

Looks very cute. I'm looking around my mans apartment now (the one i'm supposed to call home from now) and am wondering if my little things such as these will "fit"... hmmm

aimee said...

i got a big kick out of thinking of your landlord dealing with a moss wall :)

Leah said...

lovely. and yes, the moss adds lovely background. i want to frame a chunk of moss. would that work?

Cute find - especially good as a set instead of just one. I hope you have a wonderful Holiday!
