Before we headed off to the antique fair last weekend, Maddie & I went to our favorite local antique mall for their seasonal open house. This year it was called A Vintage Harvest and all of the vendors did an amazing job setting up their booths for Fall. It definitely put me in the mood for some fall decorating. I didn't find a whole lot of stuff but was happy to browse and get some inspiration.
I found this sweet little heater hiding underneath a table in one of the booths. It's hard to see in the photo but it is the perfect shade of Jadeite green. We own a heating & air conditioning company so I thought it would be a fun little thing to display. It's new home is my bathroom.
You should have seen the look that Maddie gave me when I picked up this Black Flag Sprayer. It will go with my Halloween decorations perfectly! Vintage Halloween is so hard to find around here and if I do find it, I basically have to sell my first born to afford it. So I tend to purchase the more non-obvious Halloween items to incorporate into my decorations.
The moon and star ornaments are new and are covered with glass black beads. The seller added some vintage crepe paper adornments to make them a little more vintage-y.
I found this cute child's iron and bought it to use in my laundry room remodel. My plan is to remove the cord and add a little hook to the iron handle. Then I'll use it for a towel holder like Laurie did here.
I swear that every time I go to one of these open houses, I find an aqua refrigerator dish. This time was no exception. I picked up the 502 plus lid for $6!
So that 502 plus these cuties that Hanna steered me toward on eBay for mere pennies.....
Led me to another completed set!
At the Farm Chicks show in June, I bought an amazing black and red poppy tablecloth that I thought would be perfect for Halloween. I finally got around to giving it a good soak and hang in the sun and it looks beautiful
Isn't it awesome?
Speaking of tablecloths, a while back I had someone leave a comment asking me to show my collection.
I stack them in baskets and display them in my bedroom. They are way too pretty to be hiding in a cabinet.
I hope everyone has a great week. Mine started out great until about 10 minutes ago when I found out that Farm Chicks is on my birthday next year (Yay!!) but also on the same day as Alex's high school graduation (Nooooooooooooo!!!!!). Not to worry though, friends. Hanna, Rachel, & I already have something in the works to compensate for this devastating loss. Alameda, here we come!
