Home Decor Happiness

I have a few new treasures that i wanted to share with you!
When i was a little girl my mom had a set of a giant fork and spoon. I have been wanting hers for a long time but she has long since been rid of them. I love etsy because I found these perfect old red ones that were just right for my house. They are bigger than you think...about 2 feet long each!
Then the other day i found this great vintage looking tin sign at Homegoods. Love that store. It fit perfect on the end of my boring, ugly kitchen cabinets.
Now, one of my favorite etsy purchases is this vintage ruler coat hanger. I bought it from Susie at Bienvenue shop. She has so many wonderful ideas and when she made this one i knew i wanted one, but it would take me too long to make it myself...so i went ahead and ordered it from her etsy store. It is more fabulous in person!
And last but not least i found these these vintage flat close pins. I have plans for them. I want to frame them and hang them in my laundry room...to make the room more appealing and then perhaps the laundry will not seem so tedious or never ending!!!

**on a side note, i will be going out of town to visit with my sister this week. I hope to have more adventures to share and pictures to post when we get back. See you here when i get back!**

I thought you would have been gone by now. Did you remember(or know) that there was an Aunt Jane on Dad's side of the family? The sign seems appropriate.

cute finds. I know it seems like whenever you see something cute the first thing that pops into my head is "i could totally make that". (and then you never do!)

im excited to see your clothespin art! (love your pictures on your blog)

Your jar of cherries would look great beside the cherry quilt that I just finished! Check out my yesterday posting and see what you think....I think they're a match made in heaven!
