Hello all! Hope your week is incredible so far. I have another What I Keep Wednesday this week and today I invited one of the most cheerful people ever. And her home really shows it... it is so happy and colorful. She is pretty awesome too. Here is Heather
Hello Vintage Junky loving friends!
I absolutely adore Michelle and am tickled pink
to join in the What I Keep Wednesday fun.
My name is Heather from Life Made Lovely
and I'm officially addicted to thrift store shopping.
I love the thrill of the hunt, but mostly it's because I adore
the fact that beauty can be found in another person's castoffs.
So here's my little list of what I absolutely, positively cannot part with.
1. My vintage Pyrex collection.
I'm currently the owner of dessert plates, dessert bowls, mixing bowls, platters,
and onr very pretty green apple shallow casserole dish. I love, love, love it all!
The only thing I love more about Pyrex is if it's a little faded out from being
used loved so much. The more love it's had, the more lovely the colors become.
2. My vintage plate collection.
I choose castoff vintage plates that have a modern feel to them, either because of
their pattern or color. Right now they're being prepped for a little project I'm working on.
It's part of my "I must do something with all these pins I'm acquiring" effort.
3. My vintage mug collection.
I love finding colorful mugs made in Japan, but also have a few made in
England and Germany. I hang them from a vintage bread delivery truck basket
that's hanging over my kitchen island. Most of the mugs are a bit on the small
size compared to the size mug I drink my morning coffee from, so instead we
serve the kids their morning OJ in them. It makes for very happy mornings!
4. My vintage book collection.
I prefer vintage informational books, but if it has a pretty cover then chances are it
will end up living at my house. I just love the little bits of pattern and color
they bring to spaces in my room. I'm also a big fan of typography, so for me...
books cover two bases at once.
Thanks for letting participate in the fun Michelle!
I just think you, my dear, are the bees knees.
Heather just introduced a line of Christmas cards
with her business Life Made Lovely Designs
. Seriously, if I didn't have a graphic designer living under the same roof who loves to do the Christmas cards each year, then I would definitely get one made. I would have a hard time choosing though since they are all so... lovely *wink*
Okay, off to use my time wisely while the hyena is sleeping.... or maybe I will have another cup of coffee....
bye for now!
