Inspirational Quote

I hope you week is going well so far. Starting to get cold in Colorado. Won’t be long and we’ll have more snow. I am not ready for winter yet. I want spring, summer, and fall to last longer. 🙂

 

 

This quote is good – the story is amazing! Make it a great one!

Until next time!

Re-purposed Vintage Barrel Dolly

I have a love for vintage dolly’s – nope not that kind of dolly :). I love vintage wood and iron dolly’s – barrel dolly’s, vintage hand trucks, all of them no matter what they’re called!

There are so many possibilities for their uses. Yesterday during my nap, I had flea market flip on and guess what – yep, there was 2 episodes with dolly’s. Man the makeovers were awesome.

So I decided to take a spin via Pinterest to see what makeovers are out there. Some of these pieces are just stunning!

 

I love the simplicity of this coffee table. The dolly used to create this table looks just like one we have at the store.

A little cleaning, sealer, and a glass top, and you have your very own stunning coffee table!

 

 

 

 

 

This is a sweet piece – vintage barrel dolly and a chicken crate!

I have seen chicken crates as coffee tables, quilt racks and more, but paired with the dolly is twice as sweet!

 

 

 

Everyone that know me, knows that I can’t not create something without flowers. I just love color and vintage things, and love to pair the two!

Can you imagine this on your front porch? With winter approaching – think of all the ways you can decorate the barrel dolly for the holidays!

 

 

 

 

 

Vintage barrel dolly available at the store. We have 3 additional if this one is not the perfect one for you!

Who Do You Wear Pink For?

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so our inspirations will reflect of love of pink month!

Last week I shared that my sister is a 16 year survivor and my mother was also a survivor.

Please share with us who you walk and wear pink for! We would love to walk and wear pink for them also!

 

 

To all SURVIVORS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To those of you that are currently fighting breast cancer!

Fall Decorating

I am a pretty simple girl at heart, and I like to decorate simply also. That is not to say I don’t have collections, but I like to simply add fall colors and decor in and around my every day decor!

Do you go all out? or are you a simple decorator also? Please share your fall decorating pics with us!

 

 

I think this vase is so pretty, yet is elegant enough for a dinner party table, or entry table.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love decorating with my vintage everyday decor. Look at this beautiful scale all dolled up for fall.

I think this would be super cute with a little more color and great for entry way or it would be awesome on the mantle!

 

 

Have an awesome week. Don’t forget to share your pics with us!

One Plus One = Fabulous!

So many times we hear, “I love this but I don’t know what I would do with it or where I would put it!” Finding creative ways to use the items you fall in love with gives them a place in your home. That is our goal!

 

 

For instance, one of Nancie’s favorite one plus ones is to pair a cute plant with an even cuter item one wouldn’t immediately think of to plant in. (Between you and me, I think she looks at everything as a possible planter!!!) Teri used a dust pan as a planter!

 

 

 

Another one plus one is to add a table top to a barrel, in this case I used a vintage nail barrel, and create an instant end table for a small space! Add your own touches like a small lamp, picture frames, or seasonal decor to create a cozy corner.

 

 

 

 

 

Crocks, vintage metal pots, and vases are perfect containers for kitchen utensils. Loretta chose to house her collection of wood rolling pins in a metal pot that may not be suitable for cooking but is absolutely perfect as a display piece!

 

 

 

 

Come on in and find your perfect one plus one pieces to take home to create your cozy displays! When you fall in love with an item but think, “What can I use this for?,” just ask! We love to chat about fun uses for our beloved antiques!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is my son’s favorite time of time year – why, you ask – it is because he can wear his pink shirts without the boys harassing him. I think that it is super sweet. All of the Cowboys will be wearing pink this month also, whether it is in memory of a loved one who has, had, or lost the breast cancer fight! or just women in general!

Today I am going to share some inspiration for all of you women out there, all month long to remember to love completely, live fully, forgive & forget those who have wronged you, and fight what ever battle that is going on in your life!

 

 

This month’s quotes and inspirations’ are in honor of my sister who is a 16 year breast cancer survivor and my mother who was a breast cancer survivor prior to her death!

Have an awesome week! Until next time!

What our Dealers have been up to!

We have been busy traveling and hunting for treasures that take our breath away and that we know you would all love to see in the store. Here’s a little taste of what you might find:

Nancie is ready for fall with this month’s harvest time display which includes a to-do list from the colonial times and a beautiful butter churn ready to decorate your front porch or country-themed kitchen. The cute white and red enamel table is the perfect backdrop for additional items like a coffee grinder and brightly colored serving pieces!

Roads Less Traveled is also ready for fall with some new autumn-themed serving pieces and Fiesta Ware ready to decorate your table! Look for hidden fall cookie cutters and a new dark wood Hoosier cabinet just begging to be spruced up with all of the kitchen ware you will find in the store!

  

 

Grandma K is getting her kitchen ready with a vintage enamel Magic Chef stove decorated with enamelware and cast iron cook pieces. She also has the cutest little mini-cabinet perfect for a salt shaker collection!

  

 

Green Frog Antiques has a very cool mini garden gnome who is hanging out waiting for you to come by and visit her space! She has been traveling and brought back incredible treasures. You just can’t miss the tins, large oil cans, tractor seats, and vintage kitchen items.
