Decorating Ideas: Vintage Decorating

Vintage Decorating Tips and Tricks

Hello sweet friends.

I have spent the last few days knee deep in my vintage hoarding collection.  When it comes to decorating, there is nothing I love more than vintage treasures.

I have been sorting, cleaning, packing and shipping some of my very best treasures.  Next week, I am teaming up with my sweet pals KariAnne and Heather, and we are headed to Chapel Market!

The Chapel MarketIf you are anywhere near Pike Road, Alabama – stop on by to see us.  You can find all of the amazing details here.

Here is a sneak peek of what I sent out this afternoon.

  1. I wish I could go to the Chapel market I’m sure it will be wonderful. I just love the ruler arrows! Good luck at the market.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. I love those yardstick arrows. I have an old one that I bought at the Country Living Show but have yet to make my arrow.
    I love to collect door knobs,electric insulators and tool boxes. I love collecting things that have a story behind them. With the door knobs, I can only imagine how many people turned those knobs.I collected the door knobs because of this but never really knew how to display them until I started following your blog . I now display them on my shelves or in bowls. I plan on making one I recently purchased into a picture hanger. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Learning to type was both comical & challenging-in fact it was/on a typewriter very simuliar to the one pictures in your post today that I learned on and a typewriter that I got my finglers stuck in a few times! I nearly gave up but endured the lessons. Wish I could visit you and pick up/bring home one of your old typewriters….Ohio’s a long way from Alabama though. Good luck with the sale!

  4. I find myself drawn to baskets and unique plates. I’ve found some very nice ones at thrift stores for $1.00 or less. Thanks for some more ideas.

  5. Laura,
    Chapel Market looks like its going to be great show. I found a sweet vintage alarm clock, antlers and plenty of mercury glass ornaments a few weeks ago at Marburger Farms but I am still on the hunt for a vintage trophy. All the ones I have seen were reproductions or very expensive old ones. Have a wonderful time and happy hunting!

  6. I joust LOVE vintage hat boxes, especially if they have a print. If you get creative you can have a lot of fun with them
