October 14

I'm sorry to have left you all hanging this morning. I had to rush out the door for work, and it wasn't until lunch time that I realized I'd forgotten to post todays addition. Woops!


Anyway, I think it should be worth the wait- today I'm adding three antique metal leaves. 
The beauties are made from thin gauge metal, and were originally produced in Germany. The dealer told me that once hundreds of leaves would be used to make large tree wall sculptures and decor. So I'm not sure how these leaves escaped and made their way to Pennsylvania- but I'm sure glad they did!!!


As you can see, the paint has started to flake off of some of the leaves, which adds to their charm. Please excuse the dust that has collected on them- I'm not sure how I missed that while taking photos. Another woops!


Speaking of dust- I'm off to clean the house. But before I go, here is a photo of the give away stash so far. We are half way through the month, and that means half way through the treasures. But don't worry, I think the best is still to com!
