Found Goodness

While the hubs and I were away this past weekend, we wandered into a little town up in the mountains of NC called Brevard. There are a few little shops I love to browse in, our favorite place to eat, painted alleys, a great chocolate shop, and charm just oozes from the streets as you walk on them.

As I was browsing in one of my favorite consignment shops…..I spotted this beautiful picnic enamelware set from France. I picked up the box, which just happened to be painted in one of my very favorite shades of green, and started looking for a price. My eyes spied a little brown tag, and I could not believe what my eyes were telling me…….20.00 for the entire set of stainless steel, made in France, white and gold picnic ware! I looked at my husband with the ” I think I want to buy these and use them every day at the house” eyes and we were on our way to the register to make the purchase.

When we got to the register to check out, I double checked about the price just to be sure I was not seeing things…..and I do believe the sweet lady at the register wished she had spotted them first! I am just so happy with this purchase and can’t wait to put them to use!

What are you all finding lately?

FYI

…I know those of you who follow me on instagram have already seen this picture….but for those of you who have not seen this little lovely…….
….this is my giant marbled clay pot that I picked up on the side of the road….and it was so heavy that my son and his buddy had to help me lift it! I am happy to report that it has found a happy home at the studio front door……and I hope to add more and more pots to the studio collection soon. I think groupings of orphaned pots falls right in line with the Knack philosophy……don’t you?

REcreate…

Hello Knack’s friends! I am Fiona of Fee-AMore. I am happy to be guesting over here while Barb is out of town….
Perhaps you might or might not have heard of Katie Thompson of REcreate. I remembered i came across Katie Thompson quite sometime back and was absolutely amazed by her recreation of furniture, lighting and many other household accessories. Katie loves discovering the extra ordinary from the ordinary.
 
 

From old suitcases redesigned to become chairs, old broken kitchen scales recreated as clocks, dinnerware transformed to cake stands, milk bottles and china tea sets turned into lamps, are just some of her many amazing, lovely recreations. From old to new, useless to functional, Katie certainly gave them each a life with a function.
 


I absolutely enjoy Katie’s style and her cutting edge interior design. I hope you do too! And thanks for having me over, Barb!
