I went to one of my favorite antique stores a few days ago and started my collection of cottage items I want for my home. I spent a while looking around, deciding on the type of items I want to put in my kitchen. I had seen this bread box a few months ago and wanted to buy it but didn't think it would fit in with my decorating scheme. Maybe that's because I was stuck between two decorating worlds. I didn't expect it to still be in the shop and when I saw it, I knew it was meant to be. I wanted something unique to hold my pot holders and kitchen towels; I knew I had found what I was looking for when I picked up this biscuit tin. The teapot was only 3.95 how could I resist that? Can’t wait for my next jaunt through the magical land of antiques and vintage wares.
Oh, one thing about shopping in my favorite antique/vintage shops of late is, that once upon a time I looked at these beautiful items in the light of what I would paint on them; now, I look at them with the critical eye of how they will fit into my home. Don't worry, I still plan to paint on vintage wares, after all, painting is in my blood. I knew I had paint fever when I saw a large propane tank in someone’s yard and wondered what I could paint on it…..sick!
I will be finishing the give away item by Monday; be watching for the giveaway announcement.
