Just over a week ago I shared a few recent thifting finds . One of my those finds was an old iron light fixture that had a pretty cream patina.
A few weeks ago I shared my vintage plate wall. It is one of my favorite corners of our kitchen/dining room. I have always been drawn to collecting old plates. At one time I collected red transfer-ware.I loved that collection, but about 7 years ago we bought a house that had blue carpet and the collection just didn't go with that house. I began decorating our old home with more grays and blues.
Today I am sharing a project I have done a number of times. When cleaning out my grandma's barn we came across a ton of old jugs and I knew I wanted to re purpose them into something. I had been wanting to try make a lamp from an old jug for a while. The jugs that cleaned up well I left clear. The other jugs that were still a little cloudy after cleaning I painted using spray paint.
One of my favorite projects from this summer are the candlesticks I made for a few of my vintage sales.
As I shared in the previous post I typically use the same formula when pulling together a vignette. Colorful vintage item(s) + a white or neutral item(s) + a wood tone item(s)
I am here today sharing a little corner of our basement where I created a little office nook. I also wanted to share a few decorating tips and a little bit of the process of putting the space together.
One of my favorite projects from this Summer are the various boxes I made using my collection of spindles.
I wanted to share a couple of areas of our home where I have added little touches of Autumn. I don't usually decorate for each holiday, but I do like to add a few seasonal touches here and there throughout our home
I am here today to share a favorite little corner of my dining room. I love to thrift shop and buy second hand! Most all of the items in our home other than the larger items like our sofas, love seats and beds all have been purchased second hand. I rarely buy any decorative items brand new or retail.
I keep adding touches of it here and there throughout our home with flowers and new house plants. I do not have much of a green thumb, but I keep trying! One way I added some Spring to our house is with this wine bottle vase.
