Vintage Antique Collections

These are a few things that I collect (that collect dust) ! The chickens/roosters were gifts from three different people and are not vintage. The silver colored pie plate came from an antique store in Connecticut. The crock holding the rolling pins and wooden spoons is not a vintage piece. I embroidered the pocket that is on the green checked towel. I have redone this grouping. I should have taken before and after photos. Prior to this look, I had a small quilt hanging from the bar on the shelf and the cupboard top was so cluttered with stuff that it looked messy.

It is difficult to take photos in my dining room with the light and the big dining table in the way. The lamp shade was bought in the quaint little town of Black Mountain, NC in a little prim shop.

This is part of my newest collection that I started. Olde brushes and vintage whisk brooms. I just love the tiny whisk broom hanging on the side of the broom box. The box was made by Sweet Liberty Homestead. On the little shelf is two green wax frogs made by my friend. They are a honeydew scent.

The shelf was a two dollar find in Connecticut and I repainted it. On the bottom shelf is a grass basket that was made by a lady on the street in Charleston, South Carolina. ( it's holding the pears ) The little teapots are McCoy and Hall. I have redone this shelf also. Looking at some of the prim blogs has inspired me to dust :o) and rearrange a few things.
