I must admit I am lucky to have a hubby that appreciates antiques as much as I do. Which is why I have been expanding my vintage decor to other rooms in our home, not just my art studio.
I recently discovered this great wooden cart at Value Village for a mere $15; when the weather warms up I'll take it outside to stain, but I couldn't wait months to display some vintage kitchen items I've found. So...
Most of these treasures were purchased at a local antique mall that had everything for 75% off! I found the great green-handled tools for a dollar or two each. The wonderful scale is something I had been eying for awhile, so when it went on sale I knew it had to come home with me.
So much more appropriate to have these in the kitchen than in my studio.
I love the rusty and worn...
the graphics on the toothpick box stating "From Canadian Woods to Kaybee Goods" and the Winnipeg Prairie Queen Honey tin (click any of the photos to biggify)...
not to mention this awesome old Mazawattee Tea box.
This year I hope to repaint and decorate the whole kitchen in a vintage style.
But for now, this is a great start.
A little more Easter around the mouse-house.
