Are you a detailed person?
When you look at something, do you see deep into the piece?
For me....the more detail, the more character the treasure holds.
If you look closely at these clay tea-lite holders, you will see ivy vines growing up each column.
The shell has variations in color, and depth that cause your eyes to linger over it's surface.
What attracted me to this little bird bath the most, was the garland around the base.
It's filled with unlikely bedfellows....a porous starfish, vintage tag, and a tiny horse hair nest nestled underneath.
One of my favorite pieces is this ceiling tin.
I LOVE all the detail on the wreath! The ribbons, the way they flutter.
The boarders along the sides.
Even the most shabby pieces in the house are delightful.
I enjoy all the rusty, chippy, distressed goodness of a vintage treasure.
The hardware on the shutters helped make the decision to purchase them.
What would I ever do without ribbons, linens, and lace?
I'm surrounded by doilies with beautiful lacework edges. Crinkled satin ribbons. Gorgeous cameos. Lovely embellished journals made by a dear blogging friend.
All things that please the eye with their design, and detail.
The most beautiful of all...Natures treasures.
With all of their swirls, and colors, and shapes.....man could never duplicate such splendor.
I must admit....of all the things here at the lakehouse...I never tire of looking, in amazement, at one of these wonders of Creation.
