New Found Joy

Hope the new week is wonderful.  Love a fresh start with each new week.

I was junkin on Friday because.............





Found this sweet Joy! Isn't she lovely.  Vintage silverware hangs on the old lampshade and the base is ivory and chippy.  Pure joy when I saw her.


I love that she is near the mason jars with my old vintage silver I have been collecting.


Love all the vintage and different silverware pieces.


Each piece is different and has a beautiful pattern.

So that is my new joy find from Friday.  I am still tweaking in my dining room.  It is fun to find new things and move around the things I have to get a new look.

Have a great week.  I am trying to enjoy these last few days of summer.

  3. I've always loved reimagined lamp shades like this one. The silver is so pretty! I made one myself, but with hanging wispy strips of white material and lace. Thanks for sharing and have a great week.

  8. Such a darling idea! And what a fun way to use old silver. I can't seem to get enough. The weather is still lovely here, but it already feels so different. Once the calender turns, there will be no denying it!

  30. Oh I love it Kris! Vintage silverware is so fun. I pick it up when I run across it. I have a few pieces hanging from the chandy (that doesn't really light up) in our pergola. Yours is just too cute!

  32. Are you serious... it is just too cute! And you're right it looks adorable next to your laced ball jars filled with old silverware. I'm off to ARC Thrift Store, they have bins FULL of OLD silverware... I'm not to proud to dig!! I might even find a perfect lamp! You just find the BEST junk... if you can really call that junk!
