Architectural Salvage...Love it or Not???

When I say Architectural Salvage, do you say "YES PLEASE!"
I can name a big bunch of bloggers that love it and have been known to travel near and far just to find the perfect piece.  
My Sister and I traveled about two hours to a great shop in Wilmington, NC called The Vintage Marketplace.  There we found lots of great stuff but this architectural piece was and is, the pièce de ré·sis·tance!
 The shopkeeper told us a little about the history of this piece of salvage.  It seems it was rescued from an old Historical District Mansion that was being torn down and the shop was lucky enough to grab up some pieces.  Did I mention there were two pieces of this trim??? One for Sister and one for me!
For now it resides on top of a table in my entryway.  It's so heavy that I'm not sure if I will ever hang it.  

Sister has been on the hunt for a great cow picture and here's what she found at Joss and Main.

Once again I want to thank you all for your prayers, well wishes, notes to me and for the visits and support for my son Jeff's Go Fund Me Page.  I can't thank you enough.  Jeff still has a very long way to go, but we are making a little more progress everyday.  Again, I thank you with all my heart helping to keep me focused and letting me know that we are not in this alone.  💑 I'm so grateful.

What a GREAT piece of salvage. I have been hauling a couple of pieces around for a whole lotta years knowing I will use them SOMEPLACE SOMEDAY. How great that you and your sister were both able to get a piece of that history.

Still praying for Jeff...Blessings- xo Diana

I wish I had a place for a piece of salvage (or the imagination to put something in a good spot) but I don't. These are gorgeous and I'd love to see how you use yours. The cow canvass is gorgeous. Now that fits a neutral decor and doesn't scream Yippie Kye A!!!

Prayers still coming for Jeff. Hope he gets better with each day.

Oh my gosh this is an awesome piece of salvage. SCORE!!!! Swooning over this piece. How lucky that they had two so your sister could have one too. Still keeping Jeff in my prayers. Glad he is on a better road for hopefully a good chance at remission.

Unbelievable find - and to find two - one for each sister. I would lug this around the house so each room could experience the wonder of architectural salvage. A white cow? You actually found a white cow painting?

Just beautiful! I use to follow your blog when mine was Our Back Porch. After a divorce and taking time to heal, I am back to blogging at my new blog. Hope you can drop by. I read about Jeff, and I'm so sorry for what he's going through. Please know that I am sending up prayers!

Chippy White Cottage Blessings,
