FOUND is ready for summer! Are you? Seems like people ease into a more casual style this time of year. We've been gathering fresh finds at FOUND that are fun for summertime. Here's a quick photo blog of some of our favorites. At the Third Sunday Market in Bloomington, Illinois, I found someone who was making flowers with antique doorknobs - of course I needed to bring some back to Ann Arbor! Another artist at that show had flowers she made from corrigated tin from rusty sheds - all the small ones sold already - but we still have a few of these huge ones. Great on a garden fence or hung instead of a summer wreath. Love these for casual rooms and cottages, as well. This vintage sign proclaiming Air Conditioned was probably from a motel or cabins for vacationers. In rough shape, but the red plastic letters are screwed on, so could be removed to repaint - but it makes me smile just the way it is.
Briwaxed this heavy duty, large capacity vintage red wheelbarrow and wheeled it into the shop. Put a little display of sweet (okey-dokey) artichoke pillows in in, but it would be quite happy in someone's garden. While you wait for your flowers to fill in, plant these in a row for instant color! And add some candles to the garden stake votive holders to illuminate your party.
