I love discovering unique and fun items. But can struggle with how to re-purpose the found treasures so it could be weaved into my home decor.
My solutions is before I head out to the flea market or Renningers Extravaganza, I search on Pinterest and gather up ideas that catches my attention and would would work. From there I create a “hunting list”.
I love this!!! I started to put my globe away for the holidays and then I saw this brilliant idea from The House of Hawthornes. Now I am hunting for the right Santa.
2. Industrial Springs
Even a rusty industrial spring can be incorporated into your holiday design. Sjarmerende Lerkekrans also uses it for holiday card holder.
Vintage Christmas ornaments carry with them Christmas memories. The designs and colors add character to a room. Priscillas has a great centerpiece display, while Love Fox Vintage hangs them as a window dressing.
4. Aged Clay Pots
I have seen these clay pots around alot at shows, but never sure how I would put them to use. Then I came across Kate Browns Homework Shop and she had a beautiful idea.
5. Soda Crates
6. Vintage Metal Toys
Old metal trucks and tractors are making statements this season. The white truck comes from Itsy Bits & Pieces.
7. Bubble Gum Machine
The fun of a bubble gum machine. Blue Cardinal Vintage turns it into a large snow globe as a display piece. I am also a fan of the lunch boxes.
8. Vintage Scale
I love the industrial touch of a vintage scale in the kitchen. The Backyard Bungalow added an old lunch box and greenery for a charming touch.
9. Retro Thermos
Vintage Thermoses can add that little burst of color and design in a kitchen. During the holidays the patterns are perfect for a little vignette as seen in a post by House of Hawthornes.
10. Country Milk Jugs
Organized Clutter utilized the milk jug to add height to her entryway vignette. She was also playing on the red accent color.
Have fun and get creative this holiday season with your found treasures.
