The thing is, I have to repaint my door to coordinate with the new roof, and until I do that I don't want to share the changed exterior. And I want to get some super-good pictures of the dining room before I share that too. So I've been busy around here, but that's why the blog has been quiet!
Saturday was the Great Granville Garage Sales. At last year's event, if you recall, I got my gothic-style table that once was used in a church. Like last year, this year I only found one item to buy, but it was a stand-out item again.
Late in the garage sale season last year, I found a super super heavy stone garden plinth for $10 (I can't believe it either). I've been needing a planter for the top of it. Well, at Saturday's sale, I came across one that was too perfect to pass up.
A pair of squirrels on each side of the heavy stone planter form an ornamental design reminiscent of Arts & Crafts design with their tails. Acorns adorn the center of the pattern.
At $20, it was a bit more than I usually pay for something at a garage sale, but I knew I'd deeply regret it if I didn't bring it home.
And look at how lovely it is filled with coleus by the gate!
