Things we Love

Chippy paint....
Decorating with heart and soul....

If you are lucky enough to come across an item with soul - your battle is half over.
Just don't pass it up.
Mixing in these pieces with what you have at home is
often vital to getting the repurposed - vintage -
irresistible look we are all after these days.

the bird bath is on the tall side so it makes a great table

tip: table top decor -

use what you have, just mix it up for a fresh change of the seasons.

Open your mind, throw your favorites together and see what you come up with.
The boxwood, pheasant feathers and herringbone check are a reminder of winter; whereas, the nest, eggs and bundle of pretty flowers are a touch of spring to come.
The books and the texture of the fun new scarf are just plain irresistible.

~ junk to some is creative beauty to all of us.

these next few shots are purely for inspiration....

Yep, my language too! I can't even go into a regular retail store that sells "n e w " stuff.. ick! ha ha :0) I'm serious though, I can't even handle it...I need old, I need chippy, I need worn, I need memories, I need vintage!


Layer it on. Change it up.

Time for a refresh. Have you ever looked at an area in your house and thought I am done looking at that mess.   Or maybe it's just time...
