Spring Fluffing


With the beginning of a new season, many of us like to “freshen” up our homes (aka: Spring Clean) and bring in new treasures to help spruce up the old homestead.  There are many spring related items throughout the store, such as Easter decorations, festive vintage tablecloths for your dinner table, garden accessories and all sorts of vintage containers that would be lovely to hold a fresh flower arrangement, like the blue and white pieces below.



To bring the outdoors in, add some cute vintage floral prints to the walls and place a little wicker table by the front door with a pot full of blooming flowers.



This chicken wire cabinet would not only be adorable inside the home, but would also be perfect on a covered patio to use as a staging area to pot your plants.  Add some clay pots on the shelves and put the potting soil hidden away in the cabinets below.  This cabinet is shown in the photo above, too, on the right side.



Milk bottles aren’t only for milk…they make great flower vases, too.



If it gets too warm for you, come inside and sit in front of your vintage fan. :)

The white ladder to the right would make a nice display piece for inside or out.  It could be hung horizontally from under a patio roof to be used to hang buckets filled with flowers from. 




Our feathered friends are making their appearance in our yards and are quite happy to be plucking the bugs off of the rose bushes!  How about bringing in a bird cage and fill it with potted flowers, a little vignette of bird figurines and nests or place it outside and use it to hold candles. 



Need a pillow for your garden bench?  We have handmade burlap pillows for sale, too.  There are also other pillows throughout the shop that would be a nice addition for that comfy reading chair or hammock that will soon be getting plenty of chair time.



Till next time…..enjoy our spring weather!

Oh Baby, Baby!


Today I thought I’d share with you some adorable vintage items for the youngsters.  Sweet sets of dishes for baby make adorable shower presents.  This Little Bo Peep set is precious and the divided plate helps to keep food separated, like the icky peas.  :)

Below we have vintage cupcake picks with clowns and little game pieces that would be cute on a cupcake as well. 




Did you have a rocking horse when you were little or loved to ride on a carousel or go up and down on a see-saw? 

The little pony would not only be cute as a display piece in a child’s room, but it would make a great prop for a photographer to use.





Sweet accessories for a child’s room are all throughout the store, like this cutebeach boy (above).  Why not use vintage silver plate baby cups in a nursery to hold Q-tips or cotton balls?





The antique keepsake cat is a great piece to use for display as is the 1930’s composition doll.  A little ABC plate and set of child’s flatware would make a lovely shower gift for the mother-to-be.


If you haven’t already done so, stop on by to see The Antique Warehouse, too!   It is our annex behind our antique mall and there are some wonderful treasures out there to be found.  Becky Lee is selling a lot of pieces to repurpose, like old doors and windows.  Faith has some primitive items and Cliff has a nice selection of Mid-Century Modern.

See you soon!
