Anthropologie & An Honor

by | Jun 21, 2010 | Antiques, Favorite Finds | 17 comments

First of all, I am pretty giddy today.  I woke up this morning, looked at one of my favorite blogs, Centsational Girl and guess what was there.  A post about me
This is not a surprise to me, but it was still very exciting to see it there.   Kate has an awesome blog and impeccable taste.  Her posts are a daily read for me.  Thanks so much for the feature, Kate!  It’s truly an honor.
I shared some of my flea market finds in my last post and I wanted to share a few more things that I’ve picked up on my trip. 
Can you believe I bought these at Anthropologie?  It may not be a revelation to any of you ladies who live near a decent mall, but Anthropologie carries antiques in addition to all of the other cool stuff it sells.  I had never been in their store before and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  There were so many unique pieces and eye-catching displays. 
Most things were too expensive for me…like an awesome antique metal chair for $480, but I did buy two antique zinc cups for $8.00/each….
(Don’t you just love the rust and patina on these?)
…and a Japanese scrub brush.  It looks like the handle broke off or something, but it was only $1.95 and I thought the texture was very cool. 
I’m not sure where I’m going to use it, yet, but I rarely do. 
Make sure you check out my interview over at Centsational Girl and you may learn some things about me that you didn’t know…

    I did see the interview and I did learn something new. That you've only been blogging for 10 months! Amazing!

    Love the finds. I would probably use the old brush to hold old photos, sort of like a flower frog.
