i shared a few days ago pictures from our visit to the 3 speckled hens show, and now i’ll show you our finds!
nicole and i managed to pack my car pretty full! not as full as the time when we sold all the furniture in her house, then went to the rose bowl flea market and bought so much that we looked like the beverly hillbillies, but it was still pretty full!
i have been eyeing a “not for sale” vintage scale at a local shop for a couple years, and finally found one of my own!
its a little rustier than i was hoping for, and not the perfect kelly green i wanted, but i’m thinking of spray painting the scale…
my kids have been sitting in chairs from ikea for the last few years. they were inexpensive and cute, but caused problems every day. they way they were built made them very easy to rock (which irritates me to no end), and the plastic shell of them had cracked on a couple of them, which sometimes pinched my kids – ouch! i had been hoping to replace them, but didn’t know with what. then i spotted these chairs at the show! i got a great deal on them and they are in really good shape. the pop of color is perfect in the school room!
i bought this oil painting (for only $8!) and it works perfectly in my fall mantel (i shared it on instagram already). i bought another painting for my mom, as well, but i’m hoping to add some pops of color to it to perk it up a bit.
i love baskets, bins and crates and this one is perfect! it has already moved around the house to several different locations, so it will most likely move again soon…
i am a big fan of vintage suitcases, and this little gem is the second metal one i own. it’s sitting empty now, but i’m sure it will find a use soon (other than sitting there and looking cute).
do you like to decorate with vintage finds? what’s your favorite in your home?
