All Things Vintage #7

I’ve had to slow down my pace at blogging for a few weeks so that I could catch up after our daughter’s wedding. The celebration was just so perfect and I hope to be able to share images with you soon.

The couple of weeks since the wedding have been about napping.

Alot of napping.

In fact, I took off two whole days (ok, really only 1/2 of one day and the whole next day) and I napped alot. It felt sooooo good to sleep!

We have also been back to work catching up with projects that have been put to the side.

We worked on a custom piece – an antique dresser that we converted into a bathroom vanity for one of our clients. She loved it and I am sure you will too!

Hubby transformed a vintage school cart into an amazing reclaimed lumber kitchen cart! This piece sold the first week it was in our shop.

You can see all the pretty images in this post.

We shared a fun story about a pair of amazing antique student desks. You won’t believe the date that is stamped on the bottom of this gorgeous pair!

Speaking of a pair of desks, I also had this pair of Heywood Wakefield desks that needed some love. I had some fun imagining different ways to put these desks to use in someones home. Be sure to pop over to the post and see what ideas I came up with!

Last weekend, my friend Anna from Skylark House, and I hosted our monthly All Things Vintage Instagram Live chat. I shared a quick and easy project that you are going to want to make or your home!

Hop over to this post to see how to make this sweet project!

Here are some fun things I found from the web this week!

Let’s start with this collaboration from a couple of my blogging friends, Renae from Peacock Ridge Farm, Leslie from Feet Under My Table, and Barbara from Mantle and Table.

This lovely group of ladies gathered their supplies of vintage table linens, fresh florals & citrus, and delicious food and created a virtual garden party of sorts. I can’t tell you all about it here, so be sure to click the posts below to see all the garden-dining loveliness!

And just a few more fun reads from the web:

Linda shared an old favorite recipe of mine, Pretzel Salad, I know you’re going to love to answer if this is a salad or a dessert!

Emily shared some fun ideas for patiotic decorating that includes all things vintage!

Well, that’s it for today! I hope you have a great weekend. Let’s be sure to remember those who gave the ultimate gift so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have here in the USA!

Happy and blessed Memorial Day to you!

Until next time,
