I so love your hardware finds! I have never found boxes of keys or doorplates in my neck of the woods. Yet!

Would you mind telling me about how much you paid for that haul? That way, if I every come upon some, I will have a clue what to offer. I hate to be insulting with a low-ball, but also want to know if it's way too much.

Thanks!

Wow, what wonderful finds! I particularly love all the old brass hardware with its great patina. (Visiting via the Dedicated House!)

Ooh I'm sooo in love with all that fantastic metal Barb! Lucky you!
Do you know that I'd been thinking over the last week or so that I'd like to find myself one of those vintage tablespoons or serving spoons and add a little nest to it!!?? Great minds as they say. ;0D Yours looks fabulous, and the light is a great idea for it! x
