Nautical window shopping

A few odds and ends with nautical flair I happened upon recently.

This large old wood spool of rope with more rope and pulleys draped on top of it.

Big wood anchor decorated in all sorts of knots and such.  While not a decoration I cared for I did appreciate the intricate work of making the knots.

I took these photos with my phone so the quality isn't the best but, you get the idea.

 Neat old navigation lantern.

more lanterns

This big vintage lantern was really neat.
It had a big price tag too.

Sailboat model.

Old oars, prop and pulleys.

This white washed hatch table I really wanted.
The old heavy iron trusses in aqua combined with
the white washed wood.....

I was in heaven.  

A different type of spool for smaller rope.
It had more of sisal look about it.

That's it for my window shopping.
Did you find something fun this week?

haven't thrifted in a while but every first weekend of the month there are a lot of nautical vendors over on South Padre. I think we might check it out again when it cools down a bit.

Love your finds! The anchor could be really cool re-done with shells.

I think those are all beautiful, each one, if it could speak would tell a great tale of the past.
The boat steals my heart the most.
