After displaying you my prop room final week, I believe we will all say that I don’t NEED extra stuff. However with regards to classic I nonetheless snag issues I believe I can use or that may enliven a room or shot. All the pieces is a once-in-a-lifetime alternative. However final weekend once I went to the Rose Metropolis Flea market in Portland I used to be severely not planning on getting something – I’m actually making an attempt to not hold accumulating for the sake of hoarding, however then as you may see under, I did. 🙂 It was no Rose Bowl however the serotonin flowed nonetheless and most of those items rapidly discovered a spot in our residence and in a shot (NOT the prop room, I’m joyful to report). A fast notice in regards to the costs – most of those items had been on the spendy-er aspect, and in case you are an enormous thrifter you will possibly suppose I overpaid – and doubtless I did. However after having my very own on-line “flea” and having it find yourself not worthwhile in any respect, I’ve quite a lot of compassion for classic sellers – it’s a lot work for an unscalable enterprise mannequin. I believe it’s secure to say that none of them went into it for the cash – all of them simply adore it and I would like them to proceed to do it!! I would like them! I can’t actually dedicate an excessive amount of time to thrift procuring anymore, not as a result of I’m over it however as a result of it’s a lot extra work and time to seek out great things, particularly when the vintage malls in Portland are so good. There are extra pickers competing than ever, and the thrift outlets are largely stuffed with 5-year-old IKEA or House Items stuff (and I can’t imagine what some thrift shops cost for residence issues – much more than they’re new on the retailer!). So if I discover one thing I like, that another person spent hours sourcing, storing, transporting, wrapping, and unwrapping multiples instances I actually attempt to simply pay for it with out a lot haggling. However I even have an honest funds for residence stuff (because it’s tied to work) and might write off something that results in a reveal or on the weblog – which sure, makes me very fortunate. I’d simply somewhat overpay on classic than purchase one thing new from a retailer that I may not hold ceaselessly. Once more, I’m not saying that’s what it’s best to do however in case you are lucky to have the additional cash to spend – shopping for from native classic sellers is the easiest way to go IMHO.
Sculpture (And Vase – Kinda)
This man is so unbelievable, heavy, and oddly slender – making it nice to model on a mantel and even slender bookshelves. It has a flower frog factor on high however I don’t suppose it’s meant to really maintain water (it doesn’t go all the way in which down). I’d extra seemingly shove a bizarre sculptural department into the frog. Enthusiastic about this on the mantel. It was spendy at $175 from @northwestmodern – a very superior mid-century supplier. Zero regrets. It’s dope.
As you already know I’ve been accumulating these retailer/apothecary drawer units for some time now (largely utilizing them as aspect tables or nightstands). This man was so cute however I couldn’t discover a objective for it…UNTIL I spotted that I might use it within the pantry for all my teas!!!
It was costly however I don’t keep in mind how a lot as a result of I received lots from this supplier – I believe it was between $150 – $250. Coming to a pantry close to you quickly – it appears SO SO CUTE.
Brass Ground Lamp
Now, this man I received on the thrift retailer/consignment store the following day (Hoot-n-Annie in Raleigh Hills for all you locals). It’s a Curtis Jere brass lamp from the ’70s and it was approach too costly (and but not overpriced – this stuff run 2k + on-line). I handed on it the primary day however then I stored enthusiastic about it, picturing the place it might go, and falling extra in love. So I supplied a a lot decrease provide and received it (round $700. I KNOW I KNOW IT HURTS TO WRITE THAT).
Oh, this little man made their debut completely within the nook of the kitchen by the bar. We had been even impressed by Chris Loves Julia and lower the twine to be shorter (sure it is a extra everlasting alternative, nevertheless it appears excellent within the kitchen nook and if it doesn’t keep there it is going to go into the pantry, however I felt assured it didn’t want an extended twine). This was a bit overpriced at $175, however I actually didn’t have a tiny lamp for the bar which I needed and we had been capturing in a few days. And once more – native, classic, and so forth, so I talked myself into it rapidly. Venmo is VERY DANGEROUS, FRIENDS.
Nautical Oil Lamp Sconces
A pair of nautical wall-mounted oil lanterns with little brass hats to dam the smoke!!! How cute are these?!!! Okay, sadly these might need been the error – not as a result of they aren’t superior, however as a result of I can’t appear to discover a place for them. I used to be considering they might flank the piece of artwork within the entrance, however the scale is fairly small in there.
Then I assumed possibly flanking the entry into the pantry however I foresaw so many tragic accidents, bumping into them (and being glass, stuffed with oil, and so forth). It’s bizarre so as to add extra sconces into bogs that have already got sconces, however then I assumed possibly within the child’s tub behind the bathtub or within the WC. That’s all to say that I’m nonetheless looking for a spot for them however admittedly they’re very particular and I in all probability ought to have skipped them till I knew for positive I might use them. Heck, for the reason that different older home on the farm doesn’t have any electrical energy possibly I’ll set up them on the partitions of the prop room for nighttime searches (sure, they work however I’m additionally afraid of fires so…. ). Possibly up the steps combined in with household photographs/artwork? Keep tuned.
Cool Artwork Guide By Native Artist
I met Purl, a neighborhood artist/maker who made these dope e book covers for his artwork e book that I assumed might be used as artwork in Charlie’s room (which he LOVED – each children liked them). Purl additionally makes customized furnishings (just like the desk and bench under) which seemingly offered, however we’d work collectively on a couple of items. You may comply with in at @total_nonsequitur
The Most Good Seascape
I used to be instantly drawn to this portray for apparent causes – the colours. The vibe. The superbly excellent blue and gold body. I skipped it at first as a result of it was $485. Nevertheless it was the identical supplier because the brass lanterns and the brief brass lamp, and the extra time I spent in his sales space the extra I KNEW it will work in the home. I’ve this different seascape that I’ve had ceaselessly (this one which was in our major tub).
I put that portray within the kitchen, on one aspect of the vary and it regarded SO GOOD and simply acceptable. However I wanted one thing to steadiness it out on the opposite aspect. As soon as I remembered that (whereas nonetheless procuring) and realized I had the precise spot for it, I might justify the splurge. Since I used to be shopping for a lot from him he offered it to me for $400. And actually, after seeing it within the photographs (coming quickly) it was value each penny.
Now these coupe glasses (or desert cups?) I used to be not sure about needing or working completely on the bar, however for $30 I figured they had been well worth the threat of not working, and in the event that they did work it meant not needing to purchase new. Both approach, I knew that Elliot would like to eat ice cream out of them (joyful to report they’re on the bar and look nice).
Classic Canning Jars
If you already know me in any respect you already know that I like classic jars. Lots. We canned quite a lot of tuna rising up (not a convention I’ll proceed) and I began accumulating these classic ones for our marriage ceremony 15 years in the past for vases/candle holders. These three had been simply so beautiful and regardless that I had simply purchased a ton of pantry jars for decanting, these have a lot character. They had been $10, $15, and $20 (I believe, someplace round that) and I styled them on my kitchen counter for the shoot which regarded VERY VERY PRETTY.
A Classic Blue Salad Bowl
Lastly, from the identical vendor because the pink glasses, I discovered this bowl which I assumed would look actually fairly styled up within the pantry in addition to used for salads on our island, within the sunroom – anyplace. Only a fairly blue coloration, good texture, farm-y within the sweetest approach.
Right here’s the primary pic once more (sans copy) of all of them for scale (and as you may see all of them work so properly collectively!).
Clearly, we took tremendous fast iPhone photographs for at the moment’s put up, which at all times pains me to publish however I’m sticking to my mantra as of late that carried out is healthier than excellent! And enjoyable is healthier than carried out. 🙂
