These last few weeks, I haven’t had much time for anything besides taking care of my family and making sure that the house is progressing as planned. So, I haven’t had much time to go treasure hunting. In fact, I’m experiencing some serious withdrawal symptoms. That said, last week between dropping off Big Boy at school and taking Monkey for Mommy and Me swimming lessons at our local YMCA, I managed to sneak in 30 minutes of thrifting. The result: this gorgeous vintage brass pendant.
I love that it’s a) vintage, b) reminiscent of Moroccan lighting so the light shining through the small holes will be magical, c) brass. The iPhone photos don’t do it justice. Also, you can’t tell in these pictures that the pendant is about 20 inches in diameter. Why was it free you ask? Did I luck out and pick someone’s discarded trash? Technically the pendant would have cost $60, but since I had a store credit with the store from recycling house stuff that would have otherwise been trash, I got to pay nothing. NICE.
I’m still wondering where this beauty is going to reside. I’m sure that once we move into the house, it will speak to me. In the meanwhile, I’m just hoping I get to go treasure hunting again soon.
