" Uncovered Beauty "

When I think back to my courtship with

Mr. Dior he certainly pulled from my soul

a part of my heart waiting to be unchained.

He loved that my eyes see through a very

different perspective...

I have a deep love for items that

others no longer find value in.

The trash dumpster found gate door that we

 turned into his handsome rustic coffee table...

The vintage wood crate in the back ground

was another curbside rescue found by

my bestie Kathern.  It's beautiful that my girlfriends

know that I will love these castaways.

This next one stole my heart

a few weeks ago at an Estate sale.

Laying in a thick of tall weeds was 

this old tile cutting saw table.

It was dirty covered with rust and of course no one

could be bothered with it.

I was leaping for joy when I knew

it was coming home with me after I asked.

I could see a beautiful console table in my mind.

We married it with a piece of glass

to achieve a match made in heaven with

its gorgeous turquoise blue legs.

A lovely landing place for me to

display the treasures of my heart...

We are blessed by our home being filled

with items that are cherished and loved.

Blessed by the uncovered beauty...

This week I will be joining and linking up

 with my favorite ladies in blog land.

I truly adore them!

Much love to all of you

Oh Kate, such a treasure - you have such an eye!

I love you are saving the landfills, one find at a time.

And I love your Mr. Dior (and your friends) for understanding you and loving you because of it!

That table looks so perfect there, it is a match made in heaven for sure. WELL DONE, indeed!!!

Anne said...

Kate that piece is lovely!You always seem to find cool treasures and you turn them into a work of art!

Unknown said...

wow, love it Kate! I love that you can still some graphics on it and those pale turquoise legs are just divine! GREAT find, once again!!

Unknown said...

What an eye you have Kate - and that artwork in the background over the couch - is that from the graphic fairy ( because I did one very similar!!! )
Much love,

Rhonda said...

It is all pulled together so beautifully. I love your decorating style.

What a great table! It's fantastic in the room.

trash talk said...

You, sweet girl, are one of the treasures of our hearts and it's such a pleasure when you share your heart with us.
You gotta be a little happy that others fail to see what you do. After all, if they did you might not have scored that wonderful table...which btw is fabulous.

Tammy said...

Gorgeous Kate! Only you could put them in your home and make it so beautiful. If I did the same over here, people would think I was crazy. If it's not new, mass produced and expensive, they don't want to have anything to do with it. I just love that you rescue these castoffs and turn them into something useful. Hugs and blessings, Tammy

It's me said...

I saw it on is great !!!...lovely weekend!!...much love

Ann said...

Beautiful work, and I hope your doing well. I am still going to make you a card, I am sick right now and waiting for spring so I can get back to my crafting space in the basement. It is so cold in the winter, I can't get down there, so I work from a small table upstairs. Not easy, so I am limited. Sending a hug.

Unknown said...

Thank you for teaching us to see things in a different light...what joy it brings.

Jeanette@Creating a Life Studio said...

Kate, that is one incredible find. Thank God for those like you who see beauty where others don't!


June said...

What a score Kate. What a great eye you have! It is beautiful in your living room. I am so, so glad you saved it!
hugs from here...

CURIOUS said...


Cam said...

Incredible!! Only you could've seen the potential in this piece as it lay abandoned. It wasn't even a "piece" until you touched it and gave it style and purpose. You really are such an artist, Kate!! Just love it!

pballard said...

lovely post! Thanks for sharing your finds with us!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Love your "new" table Kate!
Big thanks to you and the mister from me...I show Jim your creations and it's been inspiring him! With a show coming up for me, I'm excited!

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Hello Miss Kate, You do have an eye for fabulous recycled items. I always enjoy what you have done just wish you were closer so I could come a shoppin, xoxo

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

What a great piece!! I love all of its rusty goodness! You always have such a great eye Kate!

Kate, these things are as precious as you are. They just scream 'KATE'! Love, love your new find. And of course, you found the perfect spot for it. Thanks for sharing your salvaged treasures with SYC. Always love seeing what you have rescued!

Bilancia Designs said...

You have an amazing eye, my friend...
How is my favorite honorary Jersey Girl~friend ??
I miss our longggggg talks. We're long overdue.
Hope you're feeling well.
Huge hugs to you.
Love u... xo

Hello Dear Kate, I love the mix you always have of the new & the industrial salvaged look, my daughter Nikki was over yesterday and she was showing me some new (Old, Salvaged) things she likes, it was quite surprising, since Nikki has always been the one to shy away from my Old, Worn pieces ~ I think she is coming around.... I have to share this post with her. I have been busy filling my newest Etsy shop with small glittery things, so happy to be able to type for a visiting purpose!

Stacey said...

The room is so pretty but I just love the table!
