My Antiquing Finds and a Chandelier Make Over!

Hi all!  Today I'm giving you a glimpse of the items I found while antiquing a few weeks ago!  You may remember that I went to the Ohio Valley Antique Mall and spent an entire afternoon browsing.  I have always wanted to check that place out and it did not disappoint!  You can read more about that adventure HERE.

Well today, you get to see the good stuff that I brought home with me and believe me, it was so hard to choose!  I may have gone a little (ok, a lot!) crazy, but oh well, that's the best part!  I'll even give you a sneak peek at how I'm working at DIY'ing one of those items.

First up are these vintage juice glasses.  I ♥ them!  I collect just a random assortment of little glasses, not expensive, but perfect size for my kids.

I actually think I recognize some of these from my grandmother's house when I was young.  Isn't the rooster so cute?

IMG_8832I also collect Ironstone from England which is just beautiful.  I love the all white pieces and use them daily.  Here I found two handled bowls and a platter.

Another awesome find was this smiley face mug.  I had a yellow one when I was a kid, but have never seen it in all white before.  It goes perfect with my collection.  As I told you in my Kitchen Refresh post, I like to use these vintage silver cups to store little items.

Next up was these two antique bird prints and frames.  In addition to my travel gallery wall, I have gradually been starting another wall gallery where I think these will fit perfectly!IMG_8828I have been enthralled with old fans since an episode of Fixer Upper where I saw how Joanna used one in her finished decor.  Here is the super cool fan that I found.  It has been taking up residence in my office for the time being.

If it will ever stop raining here in Cincinnati, then I may get it hung!

I will definitely bring you back to see it when it is all ready to go!

Anything you couldn't live without?

To life feeling like home!

XO,

Amy

    I just started doing a little antiquing/up-cycling too! It’s addicting! There are some fun places in Sioux Falls…maybe we can find some time and check them out when you come out! I have been decorating with vintage botanical prints and came across this website that has a TON of vintage prints, including birds/nests/eggs etc. You can print them off for free and just stick them in a frame. Mine turned out great. Here is the website. http://thegraphicsfairy.com

    That fan is amazing. The quality of items was so much heavier back in the day, wasn’t it? 🙂
