corbel love

I have the best mother ever.  I have been on a corbel obsession lately.  It started this past summer - end of the flea market season when I purchased these simple corbels for the butcher block in our kitchen.

But they just didn't work.  They were too big and too plain.  

But then my mother tracked down and bought me these babies.

And they are a beautiful matching set.  

Similar problem though - they don't fit the butcher block.  These were not deep enough but that doesn't really bother me.

I have so MANY plans for them.

Bulking up our fireplace with a sick mantle.

Or maybe spicing up our newly squared and expanded doorways.

Can a girl have too many corbels?  I think Flea Market Season of 2011 has a new mission - 

Mission Corbel

among other lingering missions.

I hope you find what you are looking for this spring/summer. Flea market/rummage sale/garage sale time is coming!!!
I saw your butternut squash ravioli at trader joes! It's in the "deli" type refrigerated section with the cheeses and packaged lunchmeat!
