Thrift Share - Wonderfully Wooden

Instead of getting out and visiting some sales this morning, I'm being lazy and parked on the couch.  I'm feeling more motivated though, so after this post maybe I'll go find some goodies to share next week!
I picked up this wonderful wooden ice bucket a few weeks ago.  
It was Handcrafted in Haiti by David Auld.  Though I don't know much about the Artist, 
its a lovely piece and I love the design.
This cute little bird isn't marked, but his wire legs and wooden body are so sweet.  He'll make a great accent for many of my photo shoots, so I think he'll get to hang around for a bit!
I'm not quite sure but I think this wooden container is some sort of bottle holder.  I've not seen one of these before, and not sure if it's actually vintage or made to look old...
but it's still pretty cool in my opinion.  
So maybe not fitting in with my wood theme, but I found several books recently that excite me.  I began researching Artist Robert Irwin when trying to uncover the artist that made this Rabbi piece marked Irwin.  Needless to say, I was delighted to come across this book on the Getty Gardens. I also really enjoy the vintage fashions in the "How to Draw & Paint book".
Speaking of Vintage fashion...check out these amazing Prada pumps.  Perfect for a Spring Ensemble... & they'll be up in the shop this week! (Size 7 1/2)

Can't wait to see what other vintage delights were rescued this week, so you know I'll be checking out all of the links over at Selena's & Sophies!  Hope you do too :-)

Cheers ~ Lara


  1. I was just thinking that the bird was a great prop, so I am glad you are keeping it. Love the wooden container! Excellent finds, and good luck in your outing today.

  2. Wow, Lara - you found some great stuff! Love all of it. Drooling over the Prada's - unfortunately, I'm a size 8.5. Post those babies up on Pinterest! :)

  3. I love the wooden container. Vintage or not he's cool looking

  4. I love all your finds! The shoes are amazing. Much too small for my big feet, unfortunately. :)
