Vintage on My Tabletop






I found this weathered grey wood mesh rack thingy on my trip to Arizona this summer. I thought it would make a nice stage for a changing tabletop display. This time it corrals a still life in the sitting room.





I use this chippy table a lot for serving, so a tray that is easy to whisk away works well. (I'm a little crazy over that rusty metal label holder too.)









The more rustic collections like these rusty top jars tend to hang out in my dining room for some reason. I guess that's because I have more storage there. But they don't often get appreciated close up. (I love old jars don't you?)




I've also gathered up some recent finds for an interesting look.











The wrapping paper is from Jeanne d'Arc Living. I picked it up locally from Vintage Market & Design.  (Too pretty to put away.)





This length of crochet shelf edging was exciting to find. Love anything with a bird motif!















The indispensable magnifying glass nearby.




And the merest hint of fall.




Still space left for some "necessary" things. . . .












I hope it's turning into a nice week for you!

And hope you have something cheery going on too. . . .

LOVE it all...of course the little touch of CANADA is lovely!! Those crown mason jars are a dime a dozen here!! Hope your keeping well,ox

Jacqueline, your honeycomb glass jar is what caught my eye. My collections include Napoleonic bee things, and along that line honey pots started following me home too. Especially if they feature bees. Bought honey this week in a honeycomb container, but it is plastic. '-( Why couldn't it have been glass?

Beautiful but mostly those hands....oh my goodness. Those are adorable. I've added them to my list of wishes. I need to poke around here a bit to learn how to create pretty little trays like this. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

I would be a tad crazy over that rusty metal label holder too! And do not even begin to get me going about the bird in the crochet!

Gorgeous vignettes, and I so love the light in your photographs! I recently purchased a very large Crown canning jar and am completely in love with it. Can we ever have enough of these beauties? :)

I always find your photos so soothing and comforting. It must be color palette and the patina on all the pieces that give it that warm fuzzy feel.

Thank you for sharing.

Cindy said...

Your little tray is sooo yummy, and the rusty label holder just takes it over the top. It has so much character. I love stuff like that. ... and heck yeah, what's not to love about an old glass jar!

Cindy

June said...

That tray makes the loveliest place to hold a beautiful vignette J. It is a treasure my dear and so is everything it holds. You really unearth some pretty things.

Maud Stein said...

Hello Jacqueline,

I had to smile when you wrote that you were a little crazy over that rusty metal label holder.
I totally understand :)
I could look at your pictures for ages, there is so much harmony in them. I will keep following.
Take care,

Maud
