Eclectic Estate Finds

I had a great week of treasure hunting and found lots of beautiful things for my home, Etsy shop, and antique mall booth.  I usually have one or two things that stand out as a favorites, but this week I can't decide!  

First off, I found two items for some gallery walls I'm planning in my home.  I have quite a collection already, and really need to make some decisions about getting this stuff on the walls.  


I love this mid century gravel art - the pop of yellow is perfect for my living room.

This is my second Berggren plate, and I'll be keeping this one to decorate my kitchen.

Next, I found this fabulous collection of vintage fabrics that I'm so happy to add to my stash.  I love these 60s/70s prints and vintage corduroy.  

These would make cute tote bags, don't you think?

The rest of the items all came from one estate. These are just some of the items I came home with!

This beautiful bronze horse sculpture will be for sale.  These types of large sculptures look great in both modern and traditional decor schemes.

This is another item I will have for sale - a metal basket with cool mid century lines.

I picked up a nice selection of brooches.  Clockwise, from the top:  Extremely delicate antique filigree sterling ship, Sarah Coventry signed brooch, unsigned cat pin, and vintage Monet brooch.

I thought these mod pieces were pretty nifty.

Last but not least, some Christmas goodies.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I love those brass horses! They are perfect for MCM decor. My sister collects Berggren but doesn't have any plates like the one you found. I must be on the lookout!

  14. OH MY GOODNESS!!! YOU SAID ECLECTIC!!! I'm the self-appointed "queen of eclecticity" as you'll see if you go through the linkies today and find my post down there near the end.

    That Berggren plate you showed? I've seen people weave a pretty ribbon in and out of those edge holes, tie it in a pretty bow, and then hang it up.
