A Little Vintage


Hello everyone!  Remember those pretty plum blossoms I posted photos of yesterday?  Well, I was loving them so much that I thought I would use them in a few more photos for today.  I hope you don't mind, but I figure that they'll be gone before I know it and why not use what ya got.  Right?!

Anyway, I decide to pair them with some nice vintage elements that I have here in my home.  In my book, flowers plus vintage is just about pure perfection when it comes to decorating.

I got some old clothespins from my mom a few days ago and thought I'd display them in one of the cafe au lait bowls that I have, along with the flowers.  I love, love, love this look.  I was thinking of my Grandma as I was doing this and how she would've thought it was funny to put out a bowl of clothespins :) 


For your viewing pleasure...a few more little blooms with some vintage letters.


And lastly, some old books covered in pretty patterned papers and a teeny tiny little inkwell.  Doesn't that inkwell make such a cute vase?  Glad we're in agreement :)

To add to the pretty and vintage feel of my photos I layered on one of Kim Klassen's textures...serendipity.
 
Best wishes for a wonderful day!

Tricia ♥

  10. We're in TOTAL agreement. The inkwell makes an awesome vase. I love it! The shape is just right - in fact, I wouldn't even have guessed that it was an inkwell at all - but knowing that it is just adds to the whole cool factor!!!
