My love for Iron and Tole~French and Italian~

Omg... my favorite garden pieces~ Iron and Tole~as you can see from my header on my blog~I truely can't get enough!  I'm always on the lookout for beautiful tables, benches, daybeds, sconces and chandeliers made of iron and tole.  Vintage French or Italian are my favorite!  My Kitchen and garden are filled with pieces I have collected over the years...  these pieces are getting harder and harder to find~especially at a good price!  Here are some photos of my collection~

I have been collecting iron and tole for over 25 years...these are the pieces that make my heart skip a beat~

My friend Chad from American Home & Garden just found these gorgeous tables~ If I didn't already have five of them... I would be snatching them right up~well let's just say I COULD  find a place for them in my garden or home~these won't last long!
 ~To die for~ Italian iron and tole glass top tables~(yes that's right there are two of them)  he actually had three, but one was snagged right away!  I love all the different flowers and leaves on these~they would look especially nice in the garden~

Chad also found this AMAZING etagere made of heavy iron~look at the top crown on this piece~omg~Chad you have an amazing eye!!  I love this piece~Update~this piece is SOLD!
Look how lovely this piece is stacked high with white ironstone~sigh~
