Beautiful Market finds.

It's late and I'm exhausted.
After the last four days, I am ready for a long nights rest.
I worked today...and will be going in for the next four days...ugh.
Before going to bed, I wanted to share the beautiful bowl I found at the Market.
 One of the booths was filled with items from France. This terra/clay bowl was something that drew my attention right away. It's HUGE! I love the worn paint, and gorgeous designs on the rim.

 Another booth had this wonderful architectural tin piece. The patina is amazing!
I don't know where it will go, but it's the most fantastic color!

 I brought home a few pieces from the market that didn't sell in our booth.
We plan to re-do the corner fireplace in the future, and I'd like to use this cute mantel.
For's holding a cage, cloches, a sign painted by Paula at Castle and Cottage Signs, and two of my most favorite pieces of vintage lace.
 Mr. Lakehouse painted the mantel, and I distressed it just a little. 
We plan to pull off the ugly "pretend" rocks, and replace them with planks of wood, painted white. Like Michelle at Emerald Cove did recently.

I hope you are enjoying your week.
Summer is slipping away.....enjoy what is left.


  1. Such a lovely display! Hope you have a great week! Happy September!

  2. I love the bowl, Debbie! I would be in heaven shopping at a booth with French treasures! And your mantle looks wonderful, love the cloches. And the birdcage is a real find! Hope you manage to find some time to relax soon!

  3. That bowl is so great! Glad you got some things you really love. Love the mantel and the arrangement! You are awesome!
    Hope the 4 days go by quick so you can have some down time. The older we get the longer it takes to recover from a fun weekend!
    Thanks for your prayers! I have sure needed them. Still do- but I am some better.
    Hugs- Tete
