Salutations! We’re still on break from the bathroom remodel and I’m still really enjoying that at the moment. The bad thing about a break is that it’s hard to get going again, if you know what I mean. It’s like when I come in for a drink while working in the garden on a hot summer day and then forget to go back out. I sit down with the ipad and a cold lemonade just for a moment and then that’s that.Even though we aren’t working on the bathroom these days, and really there are only a couple of details left to go anyway, I did squeeze in a day of vintage treasure hunting with my good luck charm. When I say good luck charm what I’m meaning is my honey talking me in to just going ahead and buying things up. You see, when I’m by myself I’ll hum and haw over a two dollar item and wonder if it’s exactly what I want and then wonder exactly how I’ll use it. He says, “just get it!” I think it’s mostly because he’s ready to go. Anyways, I always come home with more vintage treasure when honey’s by my side. And this trip was no exception.
One of my favorite local vintage shops got in, oh I’d say, somewhere between 50 and 100 of these super cool crate bucket-type things a few months back. I knew right away I wanted one to add a bit of rustic beauty to our kitchen, but every time I went in I told myself the next time I’d get a couple. Well, when I went in this time there were only four left. Can you believe I almost let these vintage charmers slip by? They were only five dollars each, what was I waiting for? See what I mean about the humming and the hawing.
I plan on using these blue vintage Ball jars to add some color to the upstairs bathroom. They’ll go atop of the cabinet that we still need to work on. I’m having some fun with them in the meantime though.These vintage forks are the start of a collection of mismatch flatware. It’s fun to collect things that our family can actually use, and we’re in dire need of more flatware so I have zero guilt about buying it.And here in the bathroom is the row of hooks made out of the crusty old barn board we bought that day. This is actually what we went for. I wanted honey to look at it first and make sure it would work before I bought it. It was a whole five dollars after all. More humming and hawing.
