Last finds at Lucca antique market

At the last antique market I bought some old wooden ornaments. I like these kind of useless finds but I had to decide what to do with them! So I've painted and transformed them in a sort of hooks to hang decorative and light objects or tea-towels and aprons in the kitchen...

...these are the first two I made...

...they all are different in shapes and the patina is different too...

...I picked the herbs in my work place...we have lots of plants in the cloisters (it's an ancient convent)...I'll show you some photos in one of my next post... items for my web-shop!
