Vintage Treasures

Hi everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

Last weekend, I spent the days treasure hunting! A dear friend and I hit the Portland Antique Fair plus some vintage shops and flea markets. Hard work but so much fun! Here are a few of the pretty items we discovered. I will be listing them in the shop this week.

Love this sweet, Farmhouse style kitchen scale! It’s rare to find this color so I was thrilled when I came upon this one!

There is something so homey about these lovely soup bowls. You can imagine filling them to the brim with a delicious soup while the rain comes down outside. I paired them with these stately antique soup spoons too!

Mail isn’t as pretty as it used to be but we should still have a beautiful place to hold it right? Love this silver tone, vintage letter holder. Very Art Nouveau.

I’m so drawn to lavender glass. It’s romantic, nostalgic and looks so gorgeous when the light passes through it. This antique wasp catcher is missing its cork but still remains a lovely, rustic piece.

Okay well, these are just a few of the pretties we found. Hope you enjoyed them.

Have a wonderful week!

Sneak Peek…my new Etsy shop

Okay, so I know I haven’t been the most faithful blogger lately but I have a very good excuse…

I’ve been treasure hunting. Yup. For real.

Estate sales, thrift stores and antique malls – anywhere that might have some sweet find for my soon to be open Etsy shop – Curate & Love.

Back story: While I’ve been curating art and photography for my other blog of the same name, I discovered I have a passion for acquiring gorgeous vintage decor too. It gets me away from the computer and out into the world…and that’s a good thing. I have delighted in finding a lovely item, bringing it home, lovingly cleaning¬† it and then researching it to learn it’s story. Each piece has a tale to tell. I love that.

Enough chit-chat…here’s a sneak peek at some of the pretties I’ve come across…

More to come…

Have a gorgeous weekend! We are getting tons of SUN! woo!!!

xo,
