Lovely Find

There are a few local antique shops that I like to pop into regularly.  It's always fun to look around to see what's new.  I found something on my last visit that just HAD to come home with me.


It a carved piece from the top of a french armoire.  I think it's made of oak.  The owner knows the person who brought it here from France.  She loves it but has so much stuff that she decided it was time for this lovely piece to find a new home.  

I love it!  I brought it home and placed it above a door in my craft studio.  


I adore the delicate roses on it.  The leaves and ribbon are beautiful too.


I have no idea how old it is but it's obvious that it was handcarved.


I'm just giddy over this find!  It's so pretty!
It was inexpensive too!  I love that!
