I just can not help it. I have issues. OK.
I have a slight obsession with wonderful cast iron summer cover inserts for fireplaces.
Every time I see a great Summer Cover for a fireplace in person, I stare.
I touch the relief patterns on the cold cast iron.
While other people are actually shopping the estate sale, I am staring at summer covers.
Other people are digging in boxes for vintage Christmas decor.
I am moving boxes to get a better view of summer covers and digging out my phone to take pictures.
While other people are viewing plundering through the kitchen cabinets, I am
pulling screens away from the summer covers. They were hiding this beauty.
(Oh....and can we all swoon at that green tile. )
Then I look up and see the light fixtures.
In this house, the ceilings had been dropped, but almost every room still had original light fixtures. I need a vintage light fixture for our hall.
The house also had un-painted trim, funky shag carpet, and most of all fantastic, summer covers.
It was almost too much excitement for one day.
(Note to self. Always carry camera in purse. Cell phone pictures are bad.)
