Orange Lantern

Super fun oil latern. The globe and wick could easily be replaced with a candle.

Mid-Century Votive

Couldn't resist the price on this one.

Hollywood Regency Candy Dish

This is an inherited piece. I bring it out each Christmas to fill with baubles and it caught my eye as I was taking pictures.

Sweet Little Glass Lamps

Here's an example of what one looks like with a cheap Ikea lampshade. They'd also look less sweet and more chic with a small black drum shade. The cords are frayed. Lamp kit to the rescue.

What About This Mirror!

I love this mirror so much I almost can't stand it.

Mid-Century Clock

This little beauty's brass is going to get spruced up with some household ammonia and paste wax. It has a place for a battery in the back and I'm praying it works. If not, I'll start doing research on how to fix a clock.

Set of Four Bamboo Chairs

Look at those graceful curves and the x support at the bottom. Beautiful!

A Craigslist find. This set of four chairs are soooo comfy. Not loving the denim cushions, so I have a plan for those. I've searched each chair for a makers mark and scoured the web for images, but I cannot find a copy of this chair anywhere! Who knows when it was made, but I love them.

And here are my inspiration photos for what I'd love to do with them:

Love the black minus the stripey cushions. I'd do a white or cream linen.

I'm so fond of the turquoise.

I have this punchy red-orange color in my living room rug.
Which one do you like best? What would you do with them?
