Antique Wood & Brass Binoculars

Well, not really antique, but they are made to look old and antique.  I had a few credits from Josh & Main so I did a little shopping.  One of my treasures arrived the other day.

 Wood and brass binoculars.

 Aren't they fun, look at that wood.

 They're on a really tall tripod.  This is as low as it goes, so it will go up to a little over 3 1/2 ft.  Next I had to find a place to put it, so my desk won out.

 I added a plant to help ground it.

 Is this cute or what, and no they don't really work and if the shade is open I'm not spying on the neighbors. lol  I'm really not. lol

Just a fun accessory.  I like how unusual it is.  I have one more treasure that has finally been shipped.  I will show you when it gets here.  I think it will fiish this vignette.

So what really different new treasure have you come up with lately?

  1. I like those Marty. They look great with how you've set them up. No new treasures here, just rummaging through my fall and halloween goods!

  2. Oh Marty I love these they are so unique and different. I love them on your desk. Great choice from Joss and Main.

  3. These are husband would love this. Another great vignette!!!

  4. I love it, Marty! How unusual. Yesterday I picked up two wonderful old paintings. My intent was to do a blackboard project for Social Spark. But don't know if I can cover up the paintings now that I've looked at them so much! May have to have a Plan 2.

  5. Those are great looking, Marty. They did a good job of making them look antique. You might have to put a sign in the window, stating that they are for decorative purposes only, so your neighbors won't think they're being watched! Good idea to ground them with a plant. laurie

  6. WOW I thought that they were antique....Lovely! :)

  7. Looks fantastic on that table with Mr. Golfer Marty! Did my own Bar cart which I will share next week! No great scores lately other than the figs! :-)

  8. Great look for the desk - love the "real" antique-ness of the binoculars. Hmmm, putting them on a tripod? I may be able to do that.

  9. I love those Marty. What a fun addition to your desk. They definitely look antique. Great find. Gotta love Joss and Main.

  10. I adore the binoculars, Marty! I would have totally believed you bought them at a wonderful estate sale. I do love Joss and Main. You have incorporated them into a beautiful vignette. The tripod is a fantastic way to display them. Love, love, love!

  11. They add some nice rustic interest. Can't wait to see your other treasures when they arrive.
    You always do such nice vignettes...

  12. The binoculars are fabulous and this would be something that even my hubby would like!

  13. Marty, I love these! I've never seen anything like them before! Awesome find!

  14. Those are so fun Marty! Thanks for sharing at TTF!

  15. Love those Marty, what a treasure! and as for the spying, I call it "neighborhood watch".....LOL

  16. Those are truly the coolest I have ever seen!

  17. I love the beautiful patina on these!

  18. These are really gorgeous and simply make the vignette!
    What a great find from a great store.

  19. What a fun find! it looks wonderful on your side table!
