Wooden Beads with Cross

Hello everyone!

During my last shopping trip to an antique mall, I found these over sized beads with a cross.  I have been wanting some for a very long time now, but they are usually too expensive.  These were the cheapest I've ever seen them.  So..........they came home with me!


I decided to hang them on my horse statue on the mantel.


They sold them in two different colors. One was a dark brown, and the other was a soft ivory.  I chose the latter.


I'm enjoying them here for the moment.  I like that they can be used in any room in the house and they can be draped on something or lie flat on a table.  


So, I guess waiting paid off since now I have this without the big price tag.  

Has that ever happened to you?

Thanks for stopping by!

I've got many horse statues, I have to figure out where to put them. Yours looks really nice with these wooden beads.

Pretty! They'd look nice draped over the corner of a mirror, too.

love when I hold out and then find a deal. I like those laying on a stack of old bibles too

I love those, Kelly. What a find!
I'll tell you what usually happens to me- I will wait and wait and wait and finally BUY something because I am afraid it is going to be gone- and I will pay the going rate. Two weeks later I will spot the SAME THING (maybe even better) and it will less than 1/2 what I paid. That is MY luck!!!! xo Diana

Love the old beads...and I love the horse too!! They look great draped over the horse. I have a wood horse, but he is really dark in color and I've been going back and forth on rather I should paint it all white.
hugs,
Cindy

Very pretty, Kelly!! They look just perfect here. And I love the hunt for the best price just like you! :)

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

That's the most fun part when you get something you wanted and for the best deal just because you were willing to wait. The beads look good there. I have a santos doll and I have a feeling some beads like that would look great draped around her shoulders.

So great that you found them for a good price..looks fabulous on the mantel draped over the horse...

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

That was a great find, Kelly! I think you picked the perfect spot too. The wooden beads look perfect on the horse statue.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Kelly, I have similar one in dark brown (wish they had the ivory ones) and love them. The beads look wonderful draped on the horse.

Patience really pays off sometimes. I love your horse and the large beads with cross. I love it when I 'm not looking for anything in particular and find something fabulous without the huge price tag.
