Unusual Finds in Usual Places

Those of you who know me, understand and accept that I'm somewhat addicted to shopping, especially antique shopping.  I have my usual favorite places, and I become absolutely giddy when I find unusual and unique treasures during my excursions.  I'm SO excited to show you one of the most beautiful items I've ever had the pleasure of discovering.  I collect rosaries; I adore them.  I love the symbolism, the beauty and sentiment associated with them.  So you can imagine my complete amazement when I found this...

The Rosary beads are detailed flower buds...delicate and sweet.

Look at the unbelievable detail!

So sweet!

The mirror to the right is 4 feet tall!
It's an enormous rosary...for scale, I photographed it by my 4 foot mirror (on the right) so you can judge size.  Isn't this just an amazing, incredible and timeless?  I knew you would agree :-)  Stay tuned for more fabulous finds.
