recent found treasures (and I am even sharing one of my favorite shopping spots!)

 some of my finds this past week (or two)...
these gold knobs were on a dresser that I painted for my son, they were a bit gawdy for him, but I think they will be fab on something else...
 dainty pink stationery...
 record albums...now if I just had a record player...
 ok...sometimes I go through very dry spells where I get NO cigar boxes...
this week I found 12!!
 this plant/marble creation isn't exactly a "new" find, but it is recently revamped into this shadow box of marbles and plant...
 this bunny? found at Patti Smith's on NE 42nd...just off Fremont in the Beaumont neighborhood...LOVE HER STORE!!! and he was CHEAP!!
and finally...
saving the bestest for last...
I found this a couple of weeks ago at a sale for (cheap!) and I have decided that it is from an old theatre in Europe (I haven't decided on a country yet!)...I just thought that it was so unique, even though my hubby thinks I am a bit crazy...(once it is on the  wall...I will get a full length pic)...and if you have any ideas about its origin...please...comment away- I love a good story!
anyhoo...hope that you all are finding good bargains/decorating items/treasures/junque this summer!

BY the way, if I haven't said this before...I love hearing your thoughts and comments :)

have a great week!

Love your finds, Miss Mel. The architectural piece is lovely but I have not a clue what it is/was.

I think it is from the Alhambra based on the intricate Moorish carvings. Possibly brought back by Washington Irving..at least it's fun to imagine it might be!

I had the pleasure of seeing the whole thing and it reminds me of India or possibly Bali and looks like a frame from around a door or a double shutter window over looking a beautiful wild tropical courtyard.
