A New Dealer~and Galvanized Heaven~

Hi everyone~
The weather here in Southern California has been so beautiful these past few weeks, in the mid to upper 80s!  It has made for some great flea-ing and shopping.  
My friend Karyn who I have posted about here  has just opened up a beautiful booth at American Home & Garden in Ventura.  I will have to say her amazing finds are jaw dropping!  I can't wait to share some pictures of her booth.
 She brings this amazing European flair with an incredible eye for great patina.  Is that clock just to die for?  Look at the urn, the columns, and that bench!  sigh~

More urns, French enamelware, French plant stands, iron sconces European dough bowl on a stand!  I call her the queen of lighting~because she always finds such beautiful lighting pieces! 

Primitive cabinets, linen aprons, iron and metal pieces~oh you have just got to come and see for yourself~she has so many amazing pieces!  

 I love these European vintage bread boards she brought in yesterday, two different shapes round and rectangular.  Great for parties with cheese and grapes.

Do you like GALVANIZED pieces as much as I do?  Well feast your eyes~  I call it Galvanized Heaven! :)

 ~Eye Candy~  I kid you not~  European bath tubs, chicken feeders, old market cart, lanterns, buckets and baskets, French bottle baskets you name it we've got it!!

another view~

Aww~ baby bath tubs, lavabos (French wall sinks),  French buckets in every size, body pitchers, sprinkler cans, even an antique postal box.

Have I got you salivating yet? ~ I told you Galvanized Heaven...and there's still more!~loving that mail box!! 

and more~

Loving these two very vintage iron umbrellas also~
