What's On Your Wall Wednesday and A Fun Find!

I missed the deadline for "What's on your wall Wednesday" but wanted to participate anyway! The time got away from me last night so this post is a bit late!

For the first Wednesday I'm going to show this frame that I bought years ago at a yard sale. It's warped and chipped but I thought it was beautiful. And for $5 I couldn't turn it down. I still haven't hung anything inside it yet. Actually, for three homes now it has hung on the wall by itself. People constantly ask me when I'm going to put something in my frame and I just shrug. I don't know, I'm not sure if I ever will. I think it's beautiful just the way it is. Maybe one day I will spot the perfect item and know they are meant to be together. Until then, she hangs proudly.

Visit Barb at Grits and Glamour for all the Wednesday fun!


I also want to show you what the thrift store had for me yesterday. Check out this fun candelabra. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with it (except spray paint which is a must) but isn't it great? I was so excited when I spotted it. Now to find a good place for it....

That is a great find and I know that it will make a statement where ever you choose to put it. Nothing like a great thrifting day!

Two great finds! I think the frame looks fab by itself, love the simplicity. And, you know, the decorating mags feature walls with all empty frames! That candleabra is fantastic, I'm excited to see what you do with it.

I have a frame on my wall in the main hallway, also with nothing in it! It's an antique oval frame I got at a flea market! :)

And that candelabra is amazing!! Great find!

What a great find! I think my favorite "shop" is shopped out for now. I have not seen anything that great for some time. And about the frame, I love it. I have one with a plate hanging inside. Confession of a Plate Addict http://confessionsofaplateaddict.blogspot.com/

Hello Michelle, your frame is gorgeous, I had a wall of frames then started to fill them all up and then went back to just the frames lol. I love your candlelabra, it is beautiful I have started collecting faded pastel plates in different colours for Easter and your candlelabra would make a fantastic centerpiece painted to match the different pastels. I will have to look out for one :-) Happy WOYWW, Kathy.

I actually like the look of the weathered frame by itself, looks really nice and very "now". That candlestick was a find, can't wait to see what you do with it. Kathy

Michelle,
I think I have visited your place on RMS. I am loving that funky candelabra. I wonder if you could use it on your patio as is? It is fun! And I "get" the frame. It's beautiful. Thank you for stopping by my place! Happy Wednesday! Blessings, Shay

Linda said...

Very pretty picture frame and I like her by herself! The candleabra would look great in an outside room! I always wanted a room like that! ~Smiles~Tam!

Hi there....I've hung frames on the wall several times without pictures....I think it's totally fine! And I LOVE the candelabra...what a FIND!

Happy New Year from Houston!

Darlene said...

I can't wait to see what you do with that funky candelabra! I also LOVE that wool pillow you made....it turned out GREAT!

Your daughter's room is FABULOUS. It is decorated so perfectly! You can see a lot of LOVE in it!

Cherry's Jubilee said...

I love empty frames..because they are works of art..all on their own! You really found a score with your tole type candleabra! cherry

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Wow, what beauty and character this frame has. I once saw a wall in someone's entry way filled with several empty white frames. In the center of the frames was a white hook in the wall to hang small objects like keys, hats and such. CUTE!

Christina said...

I just found your blog and look forward to looking through your posts.

The frame is really nice. Love the detail.

That chandy is absolutely fabulous. Wow, can't wait to see what you do with it.

Carol said...

This is the BEST Wednesday What's on your Wall post, ever!! I love the fact that that beautiful frame is empty. Because truthfully....it is not. It holds lots of memories and stories. Don't you wish it could talk? I wouldn't ever put anything in it. It's beautiful in its own right!

Anita said...

What a fabulous find! It's beautiful... Thanks for stopping by! It's how we find each other - now I know you're around! I'll be back for sure.
