I was at my Mom’s house the other day, and decided to snap some pictures of her decor. She has recently gotten into estate sales and auctions, but she has always been a yard sale kinda girl. I had to get it from somewhere! She combines a little bit of country with a little bit of classic, throwing a few antiques in the mix here and there as well. She has dreams of living in a farm house, with a barn and lots of land so that she can raise chickens (she already has their names picked out). She is also very crafty as well, and is always making/ baking/ growing something every time I visit her house!
Here are a few pictures of some of the things she has in her house:
Antique teapot and creamer set that I drool over every time I visit.
A cheese box filled with gourds.
An antique bee-smoker that she found at an estate sale. LOVE! This is for sale in her Etsy shop, Barn and Barrel.
An old weather vane is used as a centerpiece on the kitchen table.
She also makes hand made dessert stands out of vintage plates and candlesticks. These are available in her Etsy shop as well!
A little bit of some beach action.
An antique sewing machine with bench is used as a side table.
She shares my love of baskets. And pinecones.
Her coffee filter wreath!
This is one of my favorite pieces. This antique hoosier cabinet used to have about 15 coats of white paint on it. She bought it at a flea market and had it refinished. I remember when she bought it; I was about 7 years old, and didn’t understand what the big deal with antiques was. Now I’m green with envy over it! Funny how your tastes can change, right?
She has a large collection of tea cups and pots that were left to her by her grandmother. She continues collecting them to this day!
Love me a chicken wire basket!
She also has these little beauties for sale (with the zinc lids!) in her Etsy shop as well. I’m thinking about buying them…I have an addiction to blue mason jars.
My grandmother used to hang crystals in her windows when I was a little girl, and I used to love how they would make prisms in the sun. My mom still hangs chandelier crystals from her french doors (from the faux roman shades that she made out of bamboo placemats! Sorry, didn’t get a picture of those)
Those are just a few of the little lovelies that my mom has in her house. I always look forward to the visits with her so we can exchange our latest finds!
