Using Vintage

Using Vintage

I thought I would share with you some favorite places in my home where I have used vintage finds to decorate. 
I love ironstone mixed with silverplate.

It is used here to decorate the tops of my kitchen cupboards.

A pretty chandelier in the computer room.
An old mailbox, used as a wall pocket for the front door.

A beveled mirror, reflecting the fireplace mantle.
An old Listerine bottle and lavender in the master bath.

Old books lined up in the lawyers bookcase.

Pretty old quilts.

Old Grandfather clock made in Germany.

As you can see, we use these items.  They have so much more personality than all of the new things that are availalbe to each and every one of us.

I hope this inspires you to use YOUR vintage.
