Sharon’s Pick

Heidi at My Sweet Cottage has slowly refurbished what she calls the smallest and most neglected room in her house – the mudroom. In 1927, when the cottage was built, it was a covered back porch with a beadboard ceiling. Heidi and her husband have done a remarkable job of giving new life to the mudroom. One thing that Heidi didn’t change was a vintage Parrott light fixture which is absolutely magnificent and looks wonderful against the original beadboard ceiling. Hop on over to Heidi’s sweet cottage to see her Mudroom Before and After and get a peek at the progress in the laundry room makeover.

Amalia over at Handmade by Amalia has an uncanny knack for rhyming. And also for photography. In her post, Vive la France!, she shares with us a photo journal of her recent trip to France. I don’t know about you, but that’s one trip that’s been on my bucket list for a long time! From French pastries, to open air markets, to serene spots along the docks, Amalia shares a glimpse of her France with us. I have to say that I’m jealous! Be sure to pop over and take that trip with her. In pictures, that is! (Oh, and true to form, there’s a little poem, too!)

Lisa from Recreated Designs is Celebrating Canada’s 150 with a Milk Paint Forest and what a beautiful piece she created to represent her country! I adore the colors and stencil she chose. Pay her a visit to see all of the lovely details.

Simple Sunday – Fourth of July on the Balcony

Welcome to Simple Sunday from my daughter’s place in Florida.

 Today I’m adding a little Fourth of July decor to her balcony.

A visit to Bullseye’s Playground at Target provided all I needed to add a patriotic feel to her balcony.  It all started with this banner (I bought myself one too).  The driftwood heart is new too but it isn’t part of the patriotic decor.

Taking a cue from the banner I picked out a small red and white gingham pillow for one of the chairs.  I would have gotten two pillows but they only had one.  We are still on the lookout for another one.

This cute little ceramic ice cream cone makes a perfect holder

 for nine mini American flags.

It all came together nicely and for only ten dollars my daughter has some adorable Fourth of July balcony decor.

Thank you for joining me today and I don’t want to forget all the Dads so a huge Happy Father’s Day.

Jan at Rickety Pickets shared a maple night stand that she picked up a while ago at Restore.  I grew up with a lot of maple furniture and I am so happy to see someone take a maple piece and give it such a lovely makeover.  Jan changed the look of the piece by removing the louvered door and top rail. Then she painted it Annie Sloan Paris Grey and in my book, she couldn’t have picked a better color.  Check out Jan’s Maple Night Stand Makeover and the vision she had for this piece.

Tammy from One More Time Events is embarking on a new adventure. She recently opened up a darling farmhouse decor shop! All I need to hear is the word “farmhouse” and I’m there! She shares her oak roll top secretary desk that’s just to die for. She rejuvenated it with chalk paint, distressing, whitewashing and sealing. The result is phenomenal and a true farmhouse decor home run! Stop by and check it out for yourself, you’re gonna love it.

  Cecilia’s Pick

Debby at Debby Goes Shabby shared a gorgeous summer mantel inspired by a recent Goodwill find featuring her favorite Psalm. In her post Be Still, every detail is just lovely, but she had me with the charming pairing of a timeworn watering can filled with lush hydrangeas–swoon! Be sure to drop by and check out the rest of her inspirational mantel.

Vintage Fascination No. 128

Welcome to a Florida edition of Vintage Fascination.  I’m visiting my daughter this week and I plan to do some thrifting while I’m here.  I’ll share whatever I find next week.

Not too many treasures this week but I had a haircut on Thursday, luckily there is a Goodwill nearby.  So I dropped in for a few minutes.

This European-inspired beer stein is charming.

This one has German inscribed on it!

They both have JAPAN stamped on the bottom

and probably were imported sometime after 1952.  My daughters may fight over these.

This cheese cloche made by Dolphin is still in the original box and has never been opened.  Well, that’s about to change.

Dolphin is well-known for their wonderful teak wood kitchen treasures.  The Delft blue tile is  “Danube Onion” design.

I won these last two finds in an online auction.   Jadeite is favorite of mine and I have a small collection but rarely find it in my neck of the woods.  A jadeite cup and saucer in the Jane Ray pattern by Fire King arrived in perfect condition.

The small jadeite plates are also in the Jane Ray pattern.  They are in lovely condition for their age.  These salad plates measure 7 inches in diameter.  Produced from 1945 until discontinued in 1963 the Jane Ray pattern seems to be the most plentiful.  So I stalk online sellers for it at reasonable prices.

Vintage Collecting Part 6 ~Trophies

Welcome to Part 6 of my ongoing series about vintage collecting.

Trophies are always on my radar when thrifting and antiquing.

Trophies

These mini trophies were the first of my collection.

Vintage Jr Tennis Racket

This trophy is a scholastic trophy for the “Best All Round Senior”.

Bowling Trophy

This is a favorite of mine presented by the “Bowling Belles”.

trophy with pumpkin

I found this beauty on ETSY.

The two larger trophies are actually vases that I ordered from Target.  These are no longer available but they have similar ones available online.

Trophy lamp 1

This trophy lamp came from Antique Farmhouse.

NOTE:  Some of the pieces in my collection are vintage and some are simply vintage inspired.

Laura from Junque Cottage showed us How to Add Primitive Style to Your Home Easily and on a Budget. I love her tagline “farmhouse decor on a chicken feed budget”. Laura shares her favorite four items to buy whenever she finds them at a good price and how she uses them in her home. Pay Laura a visit to see her beautiful farmhouse in the heart of Texas.  

Kathleen’s Pick

Kathleen over at The Creative Side sure is modest. In her post, Furniture Coffee Station Table Flip, she shares with us her gorgeous thrift store table transformation. Seeing as it was only her second furniture flip if I were her I’d be shouting from the rooftops “Look what I did!” She lovingly restored the table and then painted it in the most lovely shade of pale pink: “Stolen Kiss” — gotta love that name! Pinks just happen to be pretty popular these days, so she hit that one out of the ballpark as well. I’d say she’s well on her way to a very successful furniture flipping future. So stop by her blog, check it out, and tell her congrats on a job well done!

 Cecilia’s Pick

Joy from Gentle Joy Photography is a girl after my own heart. In addition to her beautiful photography, she often shares money saving tips. Last week she shared the clever repurposing of a tabletop transformed into a small Courtyard Patio and it’s just lovely! I know I’ll never look at a “broken” table the same again! Pay Joy a visit for all of the details.
