Vintage Monday

I've always loved finding a good vintage piece to take home after a day at the flea market or antiques fair. Even the simplest piece can be an object of art in your home. I haven't had much time to do that in the last two years since I had my third child. But I do miss the fun of the hunt. I still have pieces around the house and even though some aren't used the same way they used to be, I still treasure them. I've decided to showcase some of my pieces on Mondays. "Vintage Mondays". This week its my very own market basket -its the one with the white linen below it. I've used it for many things-to hold towels, magazines, even toys. It's a great catchall.
View some great vintage pieces- and my own market basket

What vintage pieces do you have and love?

My hubs is such a modern metrosexual so we don't have anything vintage really!!

I love daycations that you mention on your sidebar!

Thank you for your visit on my SITS day back on 10/29. I am STILL playing catch up!

Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving a comment. I like what I see and would love to follow you.

We're just finishing the remodel of our house and beginning to decorate. So, I'm really new to "thrifting", "junking" and repurposing...but please keep in touch as I'm working on a vintage project I think you'll love!

Hi, Audrey, thanks for stopping by. ALl the materials for those plaques came from Hobby Lobby & I did a post about how to do them about a week or so ago if you'd like to go back & look.

Hi Audrey - love the new look for the blog. I just bought Blogging For Bliss but still don't get the HTML bit - am going to have to read it a few more times before I can improve the look of my blog. Yours new look really is lovely. x
