Keeping Up- or not

Deer Antler Mantle

Is it cool to beg for antlers? Is it cooler that a friend will give you some, along with other dead things?I wish the snow would melt and the temps would get and stay above the negative,             above freezing i...

Juxtaposition -House Tour

For years I have said my house is...shabby chic, industrial, junk style, flea market etc...But I think perhaps juxtaposition flea market style fits best. I love both the soft,  tranquil  whites as well as the rustic metals. If I had to chos...

Let it Snow (men)

Snow has been scarce so far this winter, but a storm or two is in the forecast this weekend. We were thankful for good roads when we traveled this past weekend to my mother in laws funeral. Now....a dusting or two would be nice to make it all Christm...

Fall Vignettes

I have been seeing all the great fall decor on the blogs and I have noticed a bit of a neutral trend. NOT HERE.....I love the other blogs and I think....am I overboard?I have splashes of brilliant orange, yellow, and red everywhere you look at my pla...

The Slam of a Screen Door

Nothing beats the sound of a slamming screen door.  Whether it makes you shudder or smile, it reminds you of a simple house,            full of simple things and simple ways.Folks sitting on the porch with youngens...

The Identity of a Vintage Suitcase

I wonder if a vagabond ever owned one of my vintage suitcases. I wonder where they have been. A vagabond generally had no place of permanent residence, they as you say lived out of their baggage.  Perhaps they just couldn't settle down, perhaps...

Old Door New Use

Found treasure!! As I drove along I first spotted a chair, I debated pulling over to collect it. Convincing myself I could do something with it, I jumped out to grab it, then I spotted this gorgeous door! Still with the door knob mounts on it. J...

Vintage Cart was a gift!

 Is it a bad thing if your neighbors know you love old things so very much that they will actually spend their hard earned money on  a gift for you.....without even knowing if you would have room for it?Of course they did know I could put &...

A Breath Of Spring

             FlowersFlowers always brighten a room and a mood, yet there is something a little extra special with the first bouquet on the table when Spring is in the air. With a window open and birds singing floral...

Spring Mantel

It's my almost Spring mantle, here in ND if I were to call it Spring this early in March.....that would be pushing it. With snow on the ground and 50's in the forecast it is looking good but this is a tricky climate where a spring rain can quickly re...

mason Jars- many uses

 Donna's SNS party feature this week is mason jars, I have long been a fan of collecting vintage jars and canning with new ones as well, so I am a bit over run with jars to be honest. Often I use them in mantle displays, I love the blue ones bes...
