Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

Love Them!!

My "Shopping Motto" is:
Only buy it if you absolutely love it!

After many years of buying things to only find out later that I didn't really have a place for them or that I just didn't really like them. I have learned to ONLY buy it if
I love, love, Love It!
There is nothing worse than trying to find a place for stuff that you just don't love. Or worse yet taking it to the thrift shop because you have found something you like better.

Anyway here are my new/old "gotta love them" buys!

This urn is made of cement. I plan to use it on my island in my kitchen.
I 'm going to fill it with dried stuff.
I'll try to show you a picture when I 'm finished.

I have a bedroom in my house that I call my Shabby Chic Room.
Here is a great stool that I found. I plan to use it as a plant stand. It looks perfect next to the two old window frames that I had mirrors put in.

Now to find something fun to go on the stool?!

Here is the best find of all.
As I have said before I have a French country kitchen so when I find a rooster I go crazy. Sure there are tons of rooster things out there. But not an old punched tin rooster in a even older green paint- worn frame!
I love, love, LOVE IT!!

It looks great on both sides. Now which way do I hang it!

Happy Treasure Hunting!
