Top 5 Vintage Finds

I had a free hour before picking the boys up from preschool today. And you’d have to be crazy to think I was going to spend that hour doing anything like laundry or cleaning. So I raced over to SuzAnna’s Antiques┬áto do a bit of browsing.

I found no less than fifty thousands things that I wanted to bring home with me. But I’ll just share my top 5 favourite finds (actually 6, I couldn’t decide on just 5, so I had to do a tie).

yellow-bathroom-cabinet

yellow-vintage-cabinet

I would have sold one of my children to get my hands on this charming yellow sink cabinet. But my boys got lucky because the cabinet had just been sold. Darn it.

blue-kitchen-light

This cobalt blue pendant light had the best color ever. How could you not love it?red-toms

The red wire Toms Peanut display was $79. I thought it would make the cutest bookshelf or toy storage for a boy’s room. It would have to be secured to the wall, but isn’t it about a thousand times better than those plastic bin type toy displays that cost about $50 at Target! It would be extra cute if that child actually was a little Tommy.

chicken-feeder-planter

And chicken feeders for $24. Would be so great with succulents tucked into each of the holes and placed on a kitchen window sill, or as a centre piece on a long table. I almost bought one but reconsidered when I thought about how much it would cost in succulents to fill. Not in the budget right now.blue-coffee-tin

Raleigh-ArtAnd there was a tie for my fifth place favourite find. I just couldn’t decide.

I love rusty old tins, but I especially love rusty old blue tins like this Maxwell House coffee tin.

And I just loved that this old real estate sign was so local. I’m a sucker for anything that represents where we live. I love the “Living is Finer in North Carolina”.

  1. I think that what you published was very
    reasonable. However, consider this, suppose you added a
    little information? I am not suggesting your information is not good., but what if you added a headline to possibly get people’s
    attention? I mean Top 5 Vintage Finds – 2 Little Supeheroes2 Little Supeheroes is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to get
    people to click. You might try adding a video or a related
    pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!

  3. Propagate succulents! It’s incredibly easy, takes a bit of time, but will save you lots of $$.
