Latest find, a sweet little carved table

Found this great little carved and painted wooden table at a local thrift/resale shop this past week for $40. It was a lovely little shop that I'd passed by several times which always had some beautiful furniture in front of it. I'd been wanting to stop there so went in for a quick moment on my way home from the post office one day.  The owner lady there had a really good eye for resale items. It wasn't your typical thriftshop with stuff kind of mismatched. She had beautifully arranged her items making them very appealing.  I found this little table tucked in the back of the shop but I also found a few other smaller items (I'll share on another day).
I loved the beautiful detail on it and the light pastel colors. These aren't usually a color I go for but with it being Spring and Easter coming up, it dressed up sweetly with a couple of Spring decorations and a rose from the garden. Other items on the table that were thrifted were the glass bottle vase, the metal heart tin and the Royal Dalton china Peter Rabbit bowl with the chocolate candy eggs in it (all from other thrifting days in the past). The crocheted rock was a gift from a dear friend.

You can see the lovely detail below:

It ties in rather nicely with this carved wooden framed mirror I picked up a few years ago for $5 at a yard sale in Ramona when we lived there.

 It has very similar carved details, although in a slightly different palette of light colors.

We're off to the island of Kauai this week. We're so excited for this family vacation! Maybe I'll even find a thrift shop there! Wouldn't that be fun?

Have a great week.

A hui hou! ("Goodbye, until we meet again" - in Hawaiian)

  1. I love the table! it's very "you"! And I worked at Pier 1 for years and that is definitely a Pier 1 mirror. That one used to go for about $90, so, nice grab!
