French Panel

I hit a few yard sales on Saturday and look what I found.  I am still drooling over it.  It's missing a whole corner, the wood is old and it's pretty beat up, but, oh, the patina, the charm, the beauty!  It was love at first sight for this gal.  I wish I could tell you I paid a dollar, but the seller knew it was something special too.  I happily paid the asking price and brought this exquisite piece home.  We shall live happily ever after, and for once I am not selling it.  This one's for me.

Yep, this one's a keeper.  

Doesn't it seems like summer is almost over?   We are really only about half way through and it's been a hot one, hasn't it?  

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Love it. It would be great painted white and distressed to hang over an entrance in a foyer.

Hi Maggie,
wow, that is a beautiful find.
Really really pretty, and know you are gonna have many years of enjoyment out of that. Don't you just love things like that with such architectural beauty.
Hope you are doing well.
