Thank you so much for coming over from my sweet friend Melanie My Georgian Farmhouse and her gorgeous home…I hope you are enjoying this Fall Blog Hop.
From time to time, I get asked where I found something in our Farmhouse and almost 75 percent of the time, it’s either an antique or vintage find.
I love creating a cozy warm home using little bits of history. Especially when they are layered against the heirlooms that I have collected or inherited.
I imagine all of the years that these pieces have been loved by others and it makes me feel like I am creating a haven for history just like this Tobacco basket that my husband found for me when we were in North Carolina. I hung it up over a little Amish canning cabinet and filled the ironstone with some dried hydrangeas and faux flowers.
This year for Fall, I focused in our Great Room on the whisk broom collection, the dough bowl, my great-grandfather’s war trunk, and the vintage chair that I deconstructed and haven’t “finished” yet.
You can also see tucked into the under the stairs nook, there is a vintage pie safe filled with treasures, too. In the dough bowl, I rested some cinderella pumpkins with straw as a base layer.
There is a leaf garland that was on super clearance from Michael’s craft store and it added just the right neutral fall touch to our staircase.
You can see that I use Antique Rug Beaters and a vintage Ice Tong all year long for a type of Artwork, I love their architectural style and feel like it really makes this wall feel special.
I also spray painted a silver vintage dairy can with a metallic copper color (I never liked the plain silver and figured it would only make it feel more warm) and boy was I not disappointed…now I love that Dairy Can. I filled it with some Pampas Grass and it completes this little area in front of our stairs. The wool rug is from Pottery Barn.
I hope seeing some of my antique and vintage finds displayed in unusual ways will inspire you to try your hand at collecting more primitive pieces when you pass an antique store, go thrifting or attend a flea market.
Those little treasures are out there and waiting to be loved.
Now head over to my sweet friend Charlotte…
