2nd Time Around: Garden Finial

Welcome to  2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale,  etc.

 

This is a finial that I bought recently at an Estate Sale. It had a piece that broke off as I was getting into the car, but was easily glued back together. It is actually pretty light weight, but looks heavy.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you will link a post below!

The finial is such an interesting antique, Diane! I wonder where it came from?

Oh I love that finial!! I wish I could come across something like that around here! Love your planters from last week too!

A garden finial? I would think that would be one of those ornate lightening rods that people had on their homes long ago. What kinda glue did you use to fix it with? I have terrible luck with glue on metal, it never works out for me lol

Love that finial! I'd love to find something that tall to add to the porch. Great arrangement!

I like it. I wonder how tall it is or if something is stuck in it.

Your finial is very cool! In my book--The bigger the better! I love to use finials all over my home. Thanks for putting on 2nd time around. This is my first time joining in, and I am loving meeting new people!

Hi, Diane, thanks for coming by to see me! I just wish I had more time to visit all of you, but I would be on this computer 24/7 if I did it all.

I love that finial!
