GORGEOUS Vintage Yard-Long Roses
Definitely the find of the weekend.....
I spotted this Saturday, and made a mental note to come back for it.... barely got outside the booth and knew I would regret it if I missed out, so I walked back over and bought it!

I think I could have sold it several times over before I got it to the car!

Here it is in our home..... I tried it out in about four different spots, and this one above the stairwell seemed made for it.

Thanks for the input on the "whooziwhatzit" in the last post. I'm still gathering ideas, and might even photograph some of them. So far we have birdcage cover, toaster cover, and now a head-covering for when you are wearing curlers to bed (that one should make for an interesting photograph ;)
Stop by again tomorrow for more extravaganza finds!

what a beautiful find, I'm not surprised people were trying to snatch it up before you got to the car! Good idea following your instincts and buying it right away :)

Becca....That is the trouble with going to shows like that. You want to think about it and maybe come back a little later but it is usually gone.....been there...done that! Good for you and you listened to your heart! It's a beauty and looks great in it's location!~Hugs, Patti

Becca, thanks for stopping by my blog. Are you part of our Dayton Etsy group? I was checking out your blog and saw you were at the extravaganza! Surprised to see we are neighbors! If you are interested in our local group, let me know.

I am so glad you didn't wait,
you know it would have been sold by the time you would have talked yourself into going back to buy it!
It is a beauty!
