Not For Sale

This past weekend I got a two-fer.  A trip to Austin for a conference and some serious shopping and junking time.  Part of that time was spent at the City Wide Garage Sale, an antiques flea market that's held monthly.  I perused the isles, picking up treasures to add to my shop, when I turned the corner and there she was...  She took my breath away!  Seriously!  

Isn't she to die for??  A full, 3-D zinc arrow.  No holes. Perfect patina.  Vintage industrial chic in all her glory.  Be still my pounding heart!  This must be Cupid's arrow!  It was love at first sight!

Dare I ask how much she was?  Absolutely!
She was high, but worth it.  Not outrageous like so many one-of-a-kind pieces can be.  Still, not something I could likely make a profit on.  I knew I had two choices, bring her home or pass and regret it.  I don't like living with regrets so I brought her home!

Her large size (almost 3 feet long) command center stage.  Where else to put her but the mantle?  

I'm sure a day may come when I'll tire of her and be ready to part ways, but until then.... she's not for sale!
