After a rather recent success with a jigsaw puzzle purchased at a thrift store,
I was not so reluctant to spend $.25 on THIS one...
particularly after my visit to a local monastery.
It seemed to "fit" my mindset somehow.
It's set up - ready for action - on the handy gateleg table
that my husband recently refinished.
I found this heavy, beveled oval mirror
at a garage sale last weekend
and painted the frame white.
Other finds that day included these bookends...
these two unfinished wooden pieces (free box)...
and this candle holder designed to raise the taper candle as it grows smaller.
These are some of my most recent "finds".
(I'm especially fond of the bookends.)
