Decorating With Unexpected Finds

Glad you have stopped by to see what I’m talking about today.  Recently, while dashing through Ross Dress For Less, I was stunned to see this beautiful horse.  The artwork on it is outstanding.  It appears as if it were hand-carved, yet I’m sure that it is not.  The camera doesn’t do justice to the details of streaked grays and tans, and the irregular outlines make it appear hand-carved.  Something attracted me to it instantly.  Maybe, it’s the memory, of our horse running away with my sister and me on it…ahh, into the pond.  

Thankfully, the memory of that long ago day on my family’s farm, in Texas, turned out well.  Anyway, I had no clue where it would end up in my home.  For a while the horse stayed in my “Green Room” in the bag.  One day, I grabbed that bag and ran into our master bedroom and almost as if planned, I got the horse and set it on my jewelry box on top of the dresser.  When I stepped back….well, I loved the beauty of it with its reflection showing on the mirror.  I think it found a home that second.  What do y’all think?  

Another day, a few weeks later, I was shopping in Trees ‘N Trends and found one much larger, but otherwise identical.  I mean same everything about it.  Oh, my goodness!  I was tempted…I could see it on an entry table in my mind.  Not just any entry table, but the one in our home with the inherited antique mirror above it.  Never say never!  I “never” would have believed, that a horse would be in our home!  Don’t forget to click the photos to enlarge them.  Thanks for visiting!  Helen
