Vintage Monday–Oyster Cans

Welcome to Vintage Monday.  Today’s topic is Vintage Oyster Cans.   My mom used to own a beach cottage and part of her kitchen décor included these oyster cans.  She grouped them on top of her kitchen cabinets along with large shells and mason jars filled with sand and shells.  It was a pretty display […]

Vintage Costume Jewelry

Today’s Vintage Monday features vintage costume jewelry. The pieces that I’m sharing belonged to my grandmother, great-great aunt who raised my grandmother, and my cousin’s grandmother.  I don’t know the age of these pieces but would guess they are from the 1950’s through the 1970’s. I’m starting with this pin and clip earring set because […]

Vintage Monday–1943 Posters

Back in March I shared two 1943 posters that I had framed for our lake house family room.  I had four more posters from the same set framed and I’m sharing them today for Vintage Monday. If you are new here, Vintage Monday is an occasional series where I share vintage things that I’ve inherited […]

Welcome to Vintage Monday!  Today I’m sharing some of my Vintage Easter Décor. If you missed last week, I shared my dad’s 1942 copy of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  You can see all of my Vintage Monday posts here. Can you believe that Easter is on Sunday?  Even though Easter is later in April […]

Vintage Monday–Farmhouse Style

Our neighbors are in the process of moving and have been kind enough to share some of their no longer needed vintage things with me.  I love vintage and am more than happy to give their things a home.  What they gave to me is what I’d call farmhouse style. I started Vintage Monday last […]

Farmhouse Hutch with Vintage Green Pottery

After putting these things away, I wanted to use this hutch to display another collection, this time some of my vintage […]

Ammunition Crate Table

I’m joining my Power Tool Challenge Team gals for another fun challenge.  This month our theme is modify and I turned a cold war era ammunition crate into a side table.     Why did I choose this project?  Well, there happened to be a stack of these ammunition crates in our basement and I […]

Mid-Century Yard Sale Finds

Over Labor Day weekend I happened upon two yard sales and found some great things! I haven’t been to many yard sales this season because we’ve spent nearly every weekend at the lake and not in town where yard sales are plentiful. Our morning lake routine includes driving to Smith Mountain Lake State Park to […]

Antique Post Card Display

I love using the antique post cards that I mostly inherited as a part of my decor.  Over the years Mr. SP and I have collected many post cards from Lynchburg and Central Virginia but we’ve never displayed them so that they could be enjoyed.  I’m joining my Farmhouse Friends group to share my antique […]

Pedestal Bowl Makeover – Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge

It’s time for another thrift store makeover!  For this month’s Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge I made over a wooden pedestal bowl that I found at Goodwill.  After showing this piece to some friends at school, we all agreed that it is from the 70’s and its two most common uses were for a nut bowl […]
