What I Keep Wednesday: Faded Prairie


Hello and Happy Wednesday!  It is time for another What I Keep... a little guest posting series to show all the great vintage finds that we just can't let go.  Sharing today is Kristin from Faded Prairie...I love her blog and photography... it makes me want to leap right in the screen and grab everything and run!


hello dear vintage junky readers!
i just want to give a huge *thank you* to michelle for having me here on her beautiful blog! i am completely humbled and honored to be here...
when michelle told me what she would like me to share i had to *smile*...
i have been told time and time again that i was in the wrong business, not because i can't find amazing items but that i can't let them GO!! :0)
each and every item that i find makes my heart soar...each item brings a story, a life that once was...
so needless to say when i hear the {whispers} it makes it that much more difficult to let go...
the following vintage goods are some that won't be leaving my little prairie home anytime soon, no matter what my husband says! ;0)
i hope you enjoy...
vintage wheat sifters and a farmhouse pump...



a {pride of the farm} water trough front and a vintage windmill...
the white flour bin was built by a carpenter in 1890 for his bride as a wedding gift...i bought it from his great, great-granddaughter who didn't have room for it anymore....*love*...



a vintage barn vent found from my good friend sue of {bella shabby}, a vintage milk jug with the original dairy label and an ironstone pitcher...



i have a huge obsession with cows, its a good thing too since i'm in the cattle business! ;0)
these two are a couple of my favorites...



a couple wooden pitchforks, the craftsmanship that went into these beauties takes my breath away each time i look at them...you can still see the farmers brand upon them...



a vintage gas station number and a white, chippy stool...



a vintage sap bucket from the one and only {barnhouse boys}...



and last but not least two stoneware crocks that belonged to my great-grandmother...i still remember the pickles she would make in the #10 crock...



thank you again michelle for having me here and for letting me share my vintage *loves*...






a.ma.zing.  I love it all!  I can't pick just one thing!!  In case you didn't know, sometimes Kristin will let go of stuff.  Great stuff, in fact!  And, you can visit her etsy shop and get your own little bit bit of vintage-y prairie goodness!  She just introduced a new line and I have my eye on one of those necklaces!

bye for now!

  3. Well, I gotta say...there may be a little hair pulling going on when it comes to grabbing all her goods and running away! I want them all, too!!

    The windmill is {BEYOND} awesome...the crocks are sooo cool...and Kristin, if you are reading this comment, I am tickled you are giving that gorgeous pitcher a loving home. {wink...}. I had a reeeaaal hard time letting that one go! ;o)
