In spite of my most recent setback with my camera, I do want to share the photos that I was fortunate enough to capture prior to the mishap.
Last spring I made a trip to Round Top and stumbled upon a graveyard of old signage letters (see above). Who knew what might be lurking in this dismal heap of mangled-up metal? My hope was to unearth a "d" or a "p" or possibly the initial of one of my kiddos ~ and luckily enough I found this guy.
Simple and imperfect in every way ~ just what I was looking for.
Who knows? It might end up here ~ resting on the floor...
The generously sized letter "d", with its muted shade of gray, blends in seamlessly with my color palette. And the beauty of it is ~ it does double duty as a "d" or a "p" depending on which way I flip it or whatever suits my fancy for the day.
On another note, I thought I would share my latest read with you ~ a little gift my husband recently presented to me. He knows of my love for beautiful design books. I was happy to be introduced to Patina Style by Brooke Giannetti and Steve Giannetti. I promise this book will not disappoint and is chocked full of wonderful old patina styled furnishings and rooms. I'm a little embarrassed to say, this was my first introduction to these wonderful designers ~ read more about them here on their blog, Velvet and Linen. You will be taken away by their beautiful stylizing.
P.S. Farewell to my faithful little Samsung point-and-shoot who has been a loyal cohort for the past couple of years. You will be missed. On the other hand, that means new and improved photos for Tattered Style. :)
