Finds and Favorites

Head of David

Without a doubt, a key element in my ongoing search for interesting to me, eclectic things

for my home is price.

Lucky for me, I love the search, I love the surprise in it all, and I love that the head of David above cost $2

and that the brass shell was 50 cents.

And yes- as you know- things in this price range usually require some tender loving care and adjustment.

David’s stare was a little scary, but white spray paint cures all.

And for any of us who have ever faced a blank bookshelf

wondering where to start,

Poppy of With a Dash of Color has the solution

You are not going to believe the simplicity of it all.


And, if you are interested in a uniquely White Spray Paint strategy

for spring cleaning,

you may want to read this Dear Daughters: Spring Cleaning for the Exhausted post.

Have a great weekend!

Ugh, spring cleaning, smiles. Not until May or so here, friend. The last couple of years, winter lasted well until the month of May.

I love that bust of David and what a great buy. Have a beautiful Sunday, friend.

Well David was a pretty intense guy. Glad to know that white spray paint can even tame him.;-)
