Olden days

The look of the "olden days"...what else but an angel and some Christmas balls.
Plain and simple decorations that we all can use to achieve
a vintage - days gone by - look.

housed in the bird bath




love the dark nickle and gold together



too sweet

white pared with the antiqued white....a few flowers....a few pearls...



love the mix of these two

...and don't forget black and white together... the ultimate "olden days - of today"
See you at the store...spread the word...open Monday's 12 - 5 pm all December

non-traditional vintage Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.... in Paris... aren't we all.
OK, back to the store. I have so many more vignettes and so much more product to show you that even I can not keep up with these posts....yikes.
This room is big time vintage finds, mixed with the famous Wendy Addison line that I am sure you have seen in many other blogs. It is fabulous....words, chandeliers, Eiffel tower, Fleur de lis, birds ~ all mixed with silver, black and white, coppers, platinum and nickel. WOW

birch and pine and the ladies


love the banners - 2 sizes







the lovely Santos with the vintage Bibles

Oh, if only I had about 30 Santos in stock....Hot Item!!









European licence plate....love the black and white
large platinum and nickle balls

the fairies are dancing....


my lady all dressed up


paper chairs...too cool


love the chandelier ornaments








the crowns would be great on a place setting at your Christmas dinner table.
A lot of Haute Couture

I hope you all had a restful happy Thanksgiving.
Happy decorating!

the tour continues ~ the master bath

The bath was also very fun for me to create vignettes. The room had a lot of counter tops and unadorned space. In fact, the room had nothing in it but some peach towels and the normal bath clutter. So I got my creative juices flowing....well, you'll see....
excuse the wall paper...that was not in my control to change.
Big beautiful corner tub






a few long, old barn boards and some burlap....wa-la.... a fun winter garden scape.


add some fun vintage finds as the back drop....

angels are a must















This was the perfect corner for my industrial ladder (sold) and my Sue Wolfe print. The large print hid the shower and fit in perfect with the look I was after.
(Sold - others available at the Barn)

my soft chic - damask towels - LOVE












I brought my Wendy Addison angel for a viewing
(Sold out)


needed a touch of red





the vintage bottle drying rack - love
I turn it into a vase every Christmas... this year a vessel and towel rack.
It is good to think outside the box.
















you have to have a splash of jewels in the bath...mix in some old hardware and a few real bulbs and you have a touch of Lori Miller all the way. The angel is from a local artist (Laurie B) who sells exclusively at the Barn.





Who needs combs in the vintage comb box when you can adorn with sticks and pine....love
Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
