Things We Love in the Shop

We love Leah Anderson Art.  This is one of our many favorites.  This horse would add drama to any space it is in.  Very transitional piece, large and regal.  We could see this in a very modern style home, too.
 This little vintage rooster is so cute. 
Our very "Chippy" old Baker's/Hoosier cabinet is very charming. Would be a fun addition to a kitchen remodel or existing kitchen.

 Vintage/antique Turkish Bread bowl...We can see that being made into a very cool light fixture, however it is beautiful just as it is, too.

A Few Fun Ways to Display Collections

I recently acquired a vintage croquet set and thought this might be a fun way to display it. Still trying to figure out how the balls are hanging from the wall.  Perhaps, I need to mount them on a board.

 Rackets on the wall, I like the colorful texture this is bringing to this display.
Why hang an old mirror up by a nail? Adding old rope adds another layer to this display
