Fabulous Friday Finds

What a Fantastic week!  Back to school, moving out, reorganizing and getting back to routines.  This post is about my Fabulous Finds this week.  About a week ago on my normal rounds to Tuesday Morning, Steinmart, Marshalls etc.... I spotted a beautiful Mirror at Tuesday Morning.  I looked it over, checked the price, drooled on it a little but alas, I passed it by.  It has haunted me ever since.  I swear I dreamt about it a few nights in a row!  So, today on my way out shopping with my son for New Apartment items we stopped in on the "chance" that it might still be there.  Well, it WAS! And here it IS!
 Isn't She Lovely?
Here is more of the Detail.
I think that it needs some more "Aging" as I feel it looks somewhat Flat and kind of "Manufactured" , but, that is not what I see when I look at the overall "bones" of the piece.  I'm not sure where it will end up but I am thinking in the Master Bedroom.
 The UPS man drove into our Cul-D-Sac this evening and I won't tell you how my dog Summer chased him across the street.  Ooooops I guess I just did.  Not sure what is with her right now, I'm guessing she is extra protective because of the new puppy.  I happened to be outside taking down the Lanterns and Wreaths.  It was such nice weather that I thought I had better get on it now before it gets frosty.  Anyway said UPS man delivered this suitcase sent by my MIL to Miss Beaux.  She spied it in her garage while we were in Florida and sweet talked her into giving it to her.  Miss Beaux loves all things Vintage.  Take a look inside...
 It's from the 50's!  Isn't it just the sweetest!  And I love the color.  Who knows what she will do with it but she promised she wouldn't paint it, sticker it or otherwise alter it.
 While on a jaunt to the Mission Roads Antique Mall in my area Miss Beaux and I stumbled upon this adorable Marriage License.  How Romantic is this?  I'm not sure what I am going to do with it but for $2.00 I can figure something out.  Any suggestions?  Of course Miss Beaux had to have a vintage ring that was $3.00.  I only had $5.00 on me but everything was 20% off so I got away cheap! (The trip to Starbucks beforehand was MORE expensive, but the time spent with Miss Beaux is Priceless!)

Those are my Fabulous  Friday Finds!
Happy Friday!

The mirror is wonderful...I don't think I could walk past it the first time! Glad you went back for it! And the suitcase, I love it! That shade of blue is perfect!

My dogs feel the same way about UPS...I think it's the loud truck, or maybe a stranger at the door. I have to be super careful when he comes around!

Wowie, I love that mirror and it will be wonderful when you add a little dimension to it! Haven't been doing any shopping- way too busy putting away holiday decorations. Four weeks to put it up and 10 days to take it down and put it away! whew- now I'm purging the house of clutter. LOL
