I’m going through my issues of the last year and a half of House and Garden. I keep swearing I’m going to edit them one more time then recycle. But I’m having a hard time letting go. After running across an image of a Gio Ponti black ceramic pitcher, searching on line and becoming discouraged, I thought, “I bet I can find one at the antique mall.” I didn’t. But, there were other treasures. The marble table above is still bouncing around in my head. $165.
This makes you have to turn your head a bit, doesn’t it? These darling girls have been mistreated. You could give the two of them a loving home for $168. There’s a table that’s part of the deal that has no relation to the chairs, but maybe they’ve been together and don’t want to be parted.
Three of these at $55/each. A quick spray on a good day and you can enjoy them all spring.
This guy has great stuff. Really great stuff, but he has figured it out and has these battery jars at $42 each. Still, great inspiration.
Four. I’d probably paint them white and put some really punchy fabric on that seat.
Hmmm? Oh, yes, I know, $180 for four. A total bargain.
Two of the enameled bowls which keep drawing my attention. These are really cobalt blue so I didn’t need them. I do think they were $15-ish.
And then this, in a case, right before carpool with no time to get a key. Clearly, not Ponti, but something good? That chalky black finish gets me every time.
Get out there. Not everything comes right to your door with free shipping.
