Vintage, Antiques, Primitives ~ What's Your Flavor?

Saturday, May 4, 2013

I've been out having some fun!
Vintage, antiques or primitives, what ever your's all here!
Come along...

An old strainer used as a vase, isn't that clever!
My mother still uses a strainer like this for making gravy at Christmas and Thanksgiving!  You'll be happy to know, hers isn't rusty! 

There is something so charming about tiny tables.  This one came with a HEFTY price...

Window seat anyone?... 

Saw several antique thread chests along the way...

 A primitive patch with cloth dolls, quilted pillows and gourds...

Cute sign... 

Some vintage pretties...

Large wood door with a white shelf, ironstone on a black chest...what's not to love? 

Lots of white and green...

I wanted to bring this three tier candle stand home with me, thought it would look GREAT on my porch... 

A white and blue cupboard, such a pretty combination!

Lace ferns everywhere...such a pretty touch!

Tiny chairs are charming too.  Love this one with the basket of blooms...

So many things caught my eye, but guess what?  I didn't buy a thing!
Hope you have a GREAT weekend!

  1. I love looking and do so often. Looking is free and that's a good thing!

  2. Definately primitive for me!! This looks like a pretty awesome place.

  3. I loved seeing all of this, Cindy. I have always enjoyed primitives, and I like them mixed with more traditional pieces. Those spool cabinets caught my eye. I wonder how much they cost? Were they expensive? I don't see them much here for some reason.

    I have two little cabinets on the side of the sofa in the St. Augustine house that we use as an end table. They were stacked that way in an antique shop, and I liked them well enough to bring both home years ago. One is some sort of map or document type case ,and the other was a cabinet for auto parts. It has small drawers and is really fun. I keep shells in there now, but it actually had some new parts in the drawer when I bought it. So they are mixed with my shells. :-)

    This was fun. Thanks for sharing.



  4. Wonderful shopping trip! I often spend a whole day looking and never buy. You have an awesome blog!

  5. Morning Cindy,
    Now here is a woman with restraint...........not even the candle stand......sort of makes you proud of yourself sometimes doesn't
    Looks like a really fun store to browse for sure. Loved the white cabinet with the robins egg blue color inside. My fav color right now! lol

    As I looked at your post it reminded me of a country store that I used to visit. A dear friend used to work there so I came to know the owner too, and then her husband took ill and she had to sell the store many years ago, and I don't know if it is still there or not, but I thought I am gonna take a ride over there someday and see if it is still there, cause it was just such a fun store, packed to the gills with stuff. Most of it didn't go with my decor or if I did find something the color wasn't right usually, but still was such fun to
    browse and gain ideas and every once in awhile I would actually find something to take you stirred up something from the past with this post, (LOL) and so glad you did, haven't thought of that store in years, yet it was so enjoyable!!

    So thanks for this fun post,
    Blessings for a great weekend hon,

  7. Hello Cindy, Thank you very much for your sweet comment about our 50th anniversary. This is belated but I was on a blog break. We had a wonderful anniversary with lots of memories to keep.

    Your photos of the wonderful vintage treasurers are terrific. I really enjoyed them, thank you for the fun.

  8. That old glider looks like the one that my Dad bought for my grandmother's front porch, back when I was young. I've often wondered what ever happened to it.

  9. I could spend a couple of hours there just wandering around exploring. Wonderful place, Cindy!
