Vintage Goodness {Weekend Finds}

ram's head salvaged from the garden via homeologymodernvintage.comMy weekend prize - a beautifully detailed, very ornate ram's head.  He was once attached to a body & was an exquisite piece of garden art.  Judging by the detailed workmanship, he was the best of the best.  I'm so happy that someone took the time to salvage him.

This is where he will reside for the time being, while I admire his striking beauty.

His unique qualities make him perfectly suited to a library or gentleman's study.  Properly placed, the remnants of his copper colored paint would blend splendidly with the warm wood tones of a room such as that & the yellowed pages of the books surrounding him.  I think bits of ironstone incorporated as highlights would be a finishing touch.

My foyer is my favorite part of the house to stage.  Other parts of the house all converge here, so I'm always passing through it.

What did you find this weekend?  Do send links, I'd love to see!
