Scalloped Pedestal


How about those sweet scallops?


Where did I find it?
At a junk shop. 
It was kind of beat up. 
I have put stain on it and polished it.


I really don't know if this is a plant stand or a pedestal.
 No matter. 
I like it and it is an old piece.


I hope all of you are well. I know I have not been around the past few days.
I have been literally driving for days from this and that appointment. It turns out my ear which I mentioned three months ago has not healed. I will be having surgery soon. I have been having headaches and a fairly constant earache. It will be good to resolve this problem.

  2. How pretty!! I've been on the lookout for something like that for a long time. My cousin has one similar and I covet every time I see it. Lucky find for you. ;)

    Your ear problem sounds very painful and annoying. It just isn't fun to be sick for a period of time. Get well friend.

  8. Sorry about the ear! I was hoping it wouldn't come to that. Good excuse to lay around the house, be waited on and just read books for a few days though. Oh, and a warm cat or dog to lay beside you isn't bad either!

  19. I'll bet that pedestal was for really swanky Boston ferns.
    May the ear surgery solve all the problems.
